tram stop, close to the Arenc Euroméditerranée SNCF station and the Tour Jacques Saadé.With its 17-bikes capacity, it will be accessible 24/7 free of charge to all holders of valid city-wide public transportation passes (ZOU!, transpass, pass RTM, etc.).

CMA CGM asked its Progeco subsidiary to handle the conversion of one of its containers into a bike shelter. An opening was created in one of the sides to form a door and a perforated metal sheet panel was installed to let natural light in. Progeco also fitted the bike racks inside and handled the electrical installations (motion sensor activated lights).

The bike container is fully self-powered thanks to its solar panels. SNCF will handle operational and maintenance tasks.
