Like many cities in the EU, Vienna has recently adapted an active city-wide bicycle rental programme. The concept is similar to Zipcar in the US: There are many bicycle parking stations throughout the city, and the user simply takes a bicycle whenever it is needed and then returns it to any of the other stations when they are through with it.
With their baskets and hard-core dress guards, the citibikes are rather charming, if heavy on the advertisements.
