Before a bike-share trial is wheeled out next year, the Land Transport Authority (LTA) wants to find out how much it will cost, how it will be run and whether it is feasible.
The LTA issued a request for information (RFI) yesterday on government procurement website GeBIZ to seek proposals from industry players on implementing bike-sharing in Singapore.
It intends to introduce a trial scheme by the end of next year in areas with cycling path networks.
Potential locations are the city centre, Jurong Lake district, Pasir Ris, Tampines and Sembawang.
Bicycle-sharing is a self-service public bike rental scheme in which users can pay a fee to use a network of bikes distributed around an area.
Its aim is to complement public transport by offering the bicycle as a convenient and affordable option to complete the first or last mile of a journey, the LTA said.
More than 600 cities have bike-share systems, including Hangzhou, Shanghai, New York, Paris and London. — The Straits Times / Asia News Network
