Recently, public bicycle sharing system (PBSS) has become one of the most favorite urban transportation systems that can help governments to decrease environmental problems such as pollution and traffic. This paper studies a sharing system that includes two types of stations. The first category contains stations that users can rent or return back bicycles and each bicycle can be rented by any new user who arrives to the stations. The second group is the stations which are near shopping centers, historical and other places that users and tourists can stop and visit them. These stations are used only for parking the rented bicycles for a period of time and after that, the users must ride their bicycles and turn them back to their destination stations. After discussing the network of the model under the closed Jackson network, the Mean Value Analysis (MVA) method will be used to calculate the mean queue of each station and analyzing the proposed model.
