Residents with prepaid card bearing ID information can rent one of the 350 bicycles in 16 stands, with bike routes that covers 16 office buildings and communities.

The launch ceremony was done at the Garden City Center in Shekou with Executive Vice Mayor Lu Ruifeng, he hopes that the bike service will relieve traffic jams, reduce transportation costs, and promote low carbon living.

Bicycles are free for the first hour and a 0ne yuan charge is implemented for every additional hour the user accumulates. In case the user loses the bicycle a 750 charge is applied.

Other major cities are planning to give the project a trial in their respective communities.

  2. Wow I’ve seen this in Holland and it’s a great idea. I hope the residents of Shenzhen will treat the bikes with care and that this program can be a success. It would be very convenient to be able to grab a bike around town and return it at your destination. Ideally this could be set up in many major shopping centers, parks, residential communities etc.
