JCDecaux connector

Anthony Pépin Updated by Anthony Pépin

The JCDecaux connector retrieves the state of JCDecaux bicycle stations. It creates a dataset with records containing bicycle stations data.

The JCDecaux Bike Stations dataset is available on the Opendatasoft data network. You can federate it to use the data.

Using the JCDecaux connector, you can retrieve two types of data:

  • JCDecaux Bicycle Stations Data provides dynamic real-time data (no historical data), including station state, number of available bikes, number of free bike stands, etc.
  • JCDecaux Bicycle Stations provides static and stable data, including station position, number of bike stands, payment terminal availability, etc.
This connector is not available by default. Please contact Opendatasoft for the activation of this connector on a given Opendatasoft domain.


Before you begin, retrieve your API key from JCDecaux's developer website.

  1. Choose an option:
    • If you want to create a dataset, click Catalog > Datasets and click the New dataset button.
    • If you want to add a source to an existing dataset, click Catalog > Datasets and select the desired dataset. Then, click Add a source.
  2. In the wizard that opens, select JCDecaux under the Configure a remote service section.
  3. Under the Retrieve data from JCDecaux section, enter your JCDecaux API key in the API key box.
  4. From the preview of the first 20 records that appears, do the following:
    1. From the Type list, select whether you want to retrieve JCDecaux Bicycle Stations Data (dynamic real-time data) or JCDecaux Bicycle Stations (static and stable data).
    2. Configure the source.
  5. Configure the dataset information or use the prefilled values:
    • In the Dataset name field, enter the title for this dataset.
    • In the Dataset technical identifier field, enter a meaningful identifier for this dataset.






Filter data by city

In the resulting dataset, the contract_name column contains city names where JCDecaux bicycle stations are located.

No value is selected by default, meaning that data from bicycle stations in all cities is retrieved.

From the Cities list, you can select one or more city names to only retrieve data about those cities.
