RENTAL BIKES BEING PARKED EVERYWHERE, ERRANT RIDERS ANYHOW DUMPING THE BIKES

Bicycle rentals abundant….again…

The amount of public bikes sitting to be rented around bus stops is crazy again.

Not only bus stops but they are still just dumped wherever the rider wants apparently.

I was walking on the green corridor and saw several….just sitting in the middle of nowhere. One was dumped in the bushes. It’s going to rot into trash.

I counted the amount at one of my local bus stops. 38. Why is this a thing.

Wasn’t this already tried? Didn’t it kind of fail and all the bikes ended up in a landfill in China? They were definitely a mess here. Many of the bikes were trashed and not functional.

Other countries have adopted the approach of having docking stalls. You remove from one place and have to dock it into the next set the end of your journey for it to be complete.

We’re just spinning our wheels here.

Netizens’ comments

  • Until the Singapore public learns how to be more gracious and civic minded, this idea will never ever work
  • And yet, here they are. It’s been 5 years and they are still here, and these companies (SGBike & Anywheel) aren’t going bust like their first generation counterparts (ofo, oBike, Mobike). The idea works, maybe not very well currently, but it does work. They are here to stay.
  • Just a few days ago I thought I saw someone sharing how you can print or take a picture of the QR code or sth so you could get around the system and park the bikes anywhere.
