Fantastic
Argentina has improved a lot recently in this aspect and the investment is quickly reflecting in huge rises in the number of cyclists. Unfortunately, the thing is advancing much much slower here in Montevideo, where the municipal authorities are not proactive at all and cycling is not yet taken seriously by the authorities as a significant means of transport

In the last April the automatic Cicly Hire service started in Buenos Aires (In Spanish is called Ecobici) And now works 24/7.
The most part of the manual stations are now converted to automatic.
You can catch the bikes using the "En todo estas Vos" Card, the BA EcoBici app or calling to 0800-333-BICI (2424).
The System have approximately 40 stations.

Also in The City of Rosario, Province of Santa Fe, The automatic cycle hire system started in March.
In the initial stage just have 2 stations, but it is planned the installation of 16 more stations in June.
the stations are the same that in buenos aires, but in rosario the system is not free.
You can catch bikes with the "TSC" card (Tarjeta sin contacto), and the first 30' minutes are free.













Map of the actual and future stations:

Good to see Buenos Aires rated No. 14 in The Copenhagenize cycle friendly city Index 2015. I hope the city government can capitalise on this to push for further cycling infrastructure throughout and amend the cycle sharing scheme .

Is that sign in the last photo not A forbidding sign?

Good to see Argentina picking up on cycling infrastructure though.
