It's a "station" for the Melbourne Bike Share scheme. According to the pricing page, I start to incur extra costs if I have the bike away from a station for more than thirty minutes.

Based on the iPod app, there are stations with no available docks as I type!

Just saw one of these down the local shops. Had a quick chat with the rider/driver about the current legality of such and he told me that if you have a recognised disability it is a recognised alternative to wheelchair/scooter -- go figure! (makes sense but, which is probably what surprised me the most)
I'm the operator with my pocket calculator. I played one of those in a band once (a stylophone, not a German).
