There are a number of councils in Australia which have bicycle fleets

here is the link to guidelines on setting up a bicycle fleet 

In Melbourne we have a number of councils which provide their staff with bicycles 

In the City of Yarra has some innovative policies   

  Council-owned bicycles

Any staff member or Councillor can be offered exclusive use of a Council-owned bicycle if:

    they ride -  or make a commitment to ride -  an average of more than 20 kilometres per week for work purposes or on council duties

    and they have completed an agreed bicycle-training course or can show that they have more than two years’ experience of regular cycling in an urban environment. 

The purchase and maintenance of this bicycle will be the responsibility of the Council’s mechanic and Fleet Management Coordinator.  The following are the requirements for the purchase of a Council-owned bicycle.

•  The bicycle must meet the minimum specifications as set down by the Victoria Police for purchase of bicycles.

•  The bicycle must be provided with front and rear lights, a high quality lock, a helmet and repair kit containing a multi-tool, tyre changing equipment and a spare tube.  Employees may wish to have a rear rack, mudguards or other items fitted.

•  The bicycle must be appropriate for work purposes. This would usually mean a mountain or hybrid (cross/comfort) bike or flat-bar road bike fitted with cross or road tyres.
