Residents can Now Use Shenzhentong Cards in Renting Bicycles in Yantian
Starting July 15, visitors and local residents can use their Shenzhentong card in renting bicycles in Yantian. Residents will have to pay a 200 yuan deposit in order for their cards to be authenticated for the service.
Residents outside the district, visitors and foreigners will pay the basic deposit of 500 yuan and will need to keep a balance of 20 yuan to maintain access to the bike rental system. Residents and visitors will now find it more convenient to rent bicycles for certain occasions using the Shenzhentong card, and they can even top off the cards in the other districts.
Residents can also choose to disable the bicycle rental function of their Shenzhentong cards and get their deposit back by bringing the cards to the nearest service center of the district urban management.
The bike rental system was introduced in December, including a management center, bike rental stations and service centers. Now the public bicycle rental system has reached 40,000 users and with the recent opening of 15 more rental stations brings the total number of rental stations to 145 with more than 5,000 bicycles available for rental.
