In this paper, it shows optimal inventory level of bicycle sharing service terminal by maintaining the lowest costs. As the interest to environment and exhaustion of resource increases globally, investment to sustainable transportation increases around advanced countries and interest to efficient transportation, managing and consuming of vehicle increases also. Vehicle sharing service is a model of rental car where customer rent cars for short periods of time often by the hour and its users are increasing for the reason that it is more convenient than car rent. In addition, bicycle sharing service is one of the major parts in vehicle sharing program and many of country are already managing it. This paper proposes optimal inventory levels of vehicle sharing service`s terminal by using simulation calculating operation costs of vehicle sharing service.
