The economic growth that took over major cities around the world, including the city of São Paulo, in the 1950s was followed by high population growth, conurbation and pollution. The number of motor vehicles circulating through cities is of great concern worldwide, as it increases the number of traffic accidents and increases the level of CO2 (carbon dioxide) in the atmosphere alarmingly, increasing the number of people with cardiorespiratory diseases. The topics of urban mobility, air quality and mortality rates due to traffic accidents have been discussed by top management in global meetings on the subject, in which the importance of using active mobility has been highlighted, drawing attention to the use of bicycles as a form of transportation. The number of services offered on shared bicycles has grown around the world and, in addition to representing one of the criteria evaluated by the Global Index of the most bike-friendly cities in the world, carried out annually by the Insurance Company Luko, it is a fundamental alternative in promoting habit change favorable to sustainable mobility. This article seeks to answer the question: how do bikesharing applications enable shared bicycle services in the city of São Paulo? The objective of the research is to identify, through a literature review, the importance of IoS (internet of services) for urban mobility in the provision of bicycle sharing services.
