I should just clarify one thing: both autolib' and velib' are concessions operated by private companies.

Autolib' is financed and developed by investment and industrial holding group Bolloré http://www.bollore.com/ and velib' has been financed and developed by urban advertising and street furniture company JCDecaux http://www.jcdecaux.fr/

Bolloré announced today the results from the first 6 months of autolib' operation:

118 000 individual uses

15 000 subscribers (of which 5 198 premium subscribers, who signed on for at least one year)

growth in subscribers of 10% -15% each week

80% of origins and destinations within central paris (population 2.2 million)

expect 30 000 subscribers by the end of the year

most users are 18-35

Goals:

80 000 subscribers (should be profitable at this level)

From June, focus on services for businesses
