Hi all,

A new bicycle-sharing scheme called MEVO has just (sort of) started in
It consists of 660 stations, which function like regular bicycle stands (no
active parts).

The bikes are station-less, which means they can be left in almost any
place in the city except excluded zones (albeit for a small extra fee). The
normal intended usage is to leave them at stations, which is verified by
GPS geofencing. This implies that people may (and they did) leave more
bicycles than there are stands at some stations.

How should we map the number of stands, if it's not really a measure of
One mapper that mapped them went with e.g. capacity="5 stands", but this
doesn't seem elegant or parsable to me.

Thanks for suggestions
