Construyendo infraestructuras para la movilidad: el caso del sistema de bicicletas en libre servicio de París

Abstract : Building infrastructure for mobility: The case of self-service bicycle programs in Paris
Sustainable city, new technologies, mobility. These, among others, are some of the terms commonly used to refer to the globalization of the self-service bicycle programmes. Valued for its 'planet friendly' character, these systems have become the hallmark for cities that want to become part of the so-called 'green culture'. Drawing from the experience of the Vélib' program in Paris, this essay problematizes the notions of sustainable city and mobility and describes the collective and controversial work needed to elaborate and stabilize this infrastructure. This essay describes the instruments, strategies and movements (political, urban and technical) used in the conception of this system. The first part of the text describes how the system of public bicycles is conceived as a symbol of the rebirth of urban practices in a big contemporary metropolis. The second part draws on empirical material from a case study of a self-service bicycle system in Paris and analyses two controversies at the beginning of the project. These controversies, which will be analysed from a pragmatic perspective, will allow us to move beyond the common, culturalist way of conceptualizing these infrastructures.
