Mobike, the world’s first and largest smart bike-sharing company, is expanding its dockless bike-share service to Cyberjaya in partnership with Cyberview Sdn Bhd, the technology hub enabler in charge of transforming Cyberjaya into a Global Technology Hub, and Mastercard, a technology leader in the global payments industry. This comes after when oBike was fined and had their bikes confiscated by MBPJ.
Mobike’s expansion into Cyberjaya is supported by the Sepang Municipal Council, the local authority tasked with the responsibility of providing service and basic amenities to all Sepang residents. YBhg Dato Puasa bin Md Taib, President of the Sepang Municipal Council attended the launch event held at Dash Box hotel in Cyberjaya.
Launched in April 2016, Mobike has been transforming cityscapes all around the world with its innovative and dockless bike-share solution. Unique to Mobike, the company’s entire fleet of over 7 million bikes are equipped with GPS and proprietary smart-lock technology that connect through the world’s largest mobile-enabled IoT platform. As Mobike expands across Malaysia, data insights from its smart IoT platform can be leveraged to support city planners in improving cycling infrastructure and promote greater bike use amongst urban residents.
Mobike’s approach to expansion in Malaysia and around the world prioritizes working closely with local businesses and government in order to tailor a bike-share model that best serves the unique needs of each market. Mobike’s deployment of its smart bike-share service in Cyberjaya continues its commitment to the National Land Public Transport Master Plan that aims to integrate all land public transport modes to provide users with a seamless journey.
To use the service, riders are being offered the opportunity to register with a one-time fully-refundable deposit at the promotional rate of 9 Malaysian Ringgit; at the end of the promotional period, the deposit will return to 99 Malaysian Ringgit. Mobike is also providing one free month of services in October. Following the promotional period, Mobike users can enjoy rides at the affordable rate of 1.5 Malaysian Ringgit for every 30 minutes.
