The Department of Transport is assigned to assume the prime responsibility for, with related units, implementing a pilot project, flexibly adjusting the number of vehicles and the scope. After that, the department is responsible for reviewing and evaluating the implementation results for further recommendations after the pilot period.
According to the proposal of the Department of Transport, Tri Nam Group Joint Stock Company (Tri Nam Company) is an investor to pilot the investment of 388 vehicles located in 43 locations in District 1 and along the project of organizing priority lanes for buses on Dien Bien Phu street, Vo Thi6 (District 3).
The pilot period is 12 months from the date Tri Nam Company put the car into operation. This unit is exempt from land rent to arrange parking.
The bicycle used is a smart lock, with GPS positioning feature, closed or unlocked via 2G, 3G, 4G or bluetooth network connection on mobile.
Users install free Mobike app on their phone and scan around to find the nearest bike station. Then, people using this application scan the code to unlock the used car.
When completing the trip, users park their car in the correct place to lock the vehicle. Ticket price in the pilot phase is calculated according to the time of 5,000 VND / 30 minutes, 10,000 VND / 60 minutes.
To avoid theft or loss, people who register for the service need to provide and verify valid personal information. Each bike is tagged with an ID ID. Through the central software system, the operator can track the vehicle’s travel route and the operator.
The average area of each parking location is 10-15 m2. Each location will have about 10-20 vehicles and the number of vehicles per location can be changed to suit the space and density of use.
This public bicycle system will be located on the sidewalks of some central roads in District 1, close to high-traffic bus stops (stops, waiting houses) to ensure people can walk and access services conveniently.
The Department of Transport said that the bicycle network will help connect people to the bus stop more conveniently instead of the current traditional form of walking. In particular, the city is piloting two priority routes for buses, in which public bicycles are considered an effective way to gather passengers and attract passengers for buses.
