My View on Bike Sharing Service
Bike sharing service is taking off in China. Bike sharing service allows riders to rent a bike at very low price via apps. Riders can pick up a bike anywhere in the city and drop them off at the end of the journey.
Bike sharing service is certainly of some benefits. First, it makes our life more convenient. We just scan a QR code, unlock the bike and start our journey around the city. Moreover, with more people riding bikes, the traffic stress is largely relieved, especially during rush hours and emissions produced by car are reduced. However, each coin has both sides. Bike sharing has caused troubles to city management. The shared bikes are parked randomly and block sidewalks. Besides, anyone with a cellphone is accessible to sharing bikes, including children under 12 years old who are not allowed to ride a bike on the road by law.
In my opinion, though user- and environment-friendly, bike sharing service remains underdeveloped. Related rules and regulations remain to be enacted.
