With the rising popularity of bike sharing systems, there are several players entering this space. However, one common problem faced by these companies, which leads to the company withdrawing from the system/ disabling rental options is misuse and/or theft and damage of the bicycles. Being an affordable system that is greatly beneficial to people across all walks of life, it is up to us to be responsible and appreciative of these initiatives and make good use of them - thus ensuring a solid system that strengthens and grows successfully! Keep Sharing, and Keep Cycling!
