Realistically the on-street hardware is not going to be retro-fitted, so as I see it there are 2 options:
- a combination of the red fault/spanner button and a numbered code using the 3 number buttons eg. Red + 1 = puncture, Red + 2 = brakes, Red + 3 = chain etc.
- an added “Report a Fault” option on the terminal screen. You’d need to have your key/credit card read again so it knows you’re a valid user (rather than a random person just reporting bikes as faulty!) and then it pulls up the journey details of the ride you’ve just finished (just like getting a receipt) where you can flag the bike as faulty & choose from a list of fault options.
