Residents Request More Bicycle Parking Near Metro Exits
The city government will be providing more bicycle services that will enable commuters to take the Metro Rail more conveniently. Commuters have requested that the government build bicycle parking spaces next to Metro stations.
Commuters living nearby find it wasteful to pay for a bus ticket going to the Metro station, while the best way to get there is to ride a bike to the station, with the only problem being that there are no places for bicycle parking found near the stations.
Although there is bicycle stand located at the Xiangmihu Station in Futian, no security is present making it easy for bikes to be stolen. A survey showed that most residents were willing to leave their bicycles at paid parking just to keep them safe.
Some residents are also hoping that the city will place more bicycle renting stations around the city that will allow residents to rent and leave bikes anywhere in the city. Residents feel much safer renting their bikes than hiring an illegal cyclist. The city transport department has already been planning to build 20 bicycle stands outside Metro stations in the future.
