Share-bike comes to Phuket Town

 

"This is the first bike sharing initiative in Thailand and it uses a mobile application to search for a bicycle on the map and uses QR code to scan and unlock the bike. Everyone can share the bikes simply by searching for it, unlocking it, enjoying it and returning it."

Phuket’s Governor chaired a meeting with Phuket City Development (PKCD), the Phuket Municipality and two bicycle companies who are sponsoring the initiative, aiming to launch the bicycle sharing project on September 20. The project hopes to help reduce the crowded traffic and parking space issues around Phuket Town.

 

“The project is organised by PKCD, a joint venture between government and private sectors in Phuket. The bike-share project is supported by Obike and Ofo, two bicycle rental companies, which have designed their bikes to travel from one destination to another within a distance of 1-5 kilometres,” says Governor Plodthong.

Apart from Bangkok's Pun Pun shared bike scheme that's been around for years.

 

But don't let facts get in the way of the story.

City bike use and pay-to-use works (ish) in Shanghai since the bicycle lanes are fenced off to stop idiots in cars parking in the bike lanes and deter same idiots from crossing into them.

 

Death traps in Thailand where cycles have a magnetic attraction to trucks...
