Barcelona's Bicing to add Vodafone to its Name

According to Barcelona's La Vanguardia, Europe's mobile telecommunication giant, Vodaphone will be the "naming" sponsor of Barcelona's successful bike-sharing program, bicing. The report states that at the beginning of April, the bikes, the stations, the uniforms, the website and naturally the mobile apps will all say "vodafone - bicing." 

The money from the 3 year contract for the branding of bicing with Vodafone will help the program keep the service levels high while reducing public subsidies to the program.
