Singapore’s NEW Stationless Bicycle-Sharing App Lets You Rent A Bike Anytime, Anywhere

17 February 2017

Bike-sharing is no novel concept to busy cities like London and New York City. Enter oBike, Singapore’s first stationless bicycle sharing platform, which is about to transform our city into a cycle-friendly one, too.

How it works: With the oBike app (Apple/Android), you can easily find (and even reserve!) any available bike, each fitted with GPS tracking, nearby. Look out for your easily recognisable white and honey orange bike – that’s your oBike.

The bicycles also have a QR code, which, when scanned into the oBike app, starts your rental by deactivating the clamps on the bicycles, which you’re now free to use ($1 per 30 minutes).

Its relatively affordable price point means you’ll probably get to your destination for the same price as an MRT ride – except with the extra benefit of a workout.

Once you’ve reached your destination, simply park the bicycle at any public bicycle parking area or at HDB void decks and lock the bike back up using the clamp. Voila!

More incentives to jump on this trend before anyone else does: invite a friend and receive a S$3 ride coupon.

Happy riding!
