TIME TO SHAME VANDALS OF BIKE SHARING SCHEME ONLINE

Photos showing the bikes being chained outside HDB units, thrown into canals, and even a case of a bike being repainted so the user can claim it as his own have emerged via social media. Thus, how are we going to benefit from such schemes? True, the bad apples may only represent a minority of the users, but as long as vandalism and abuse occurs, there is very little chance for the scheme to actually take off big time.

Sad fact is, bad apples are everywhere. They will vandalise and abuse the system, without thought for others. So, instead of social media showing the aftermath of these vandalised bikes, maybe it is time we show the face of the vandals themselves?

TEEN FIGHTS OFO BIKE, POLICE REPORT LODGED BY OFO

Singaporeans don't know how to appreciate a good thing when they see one. ofo allows users to rent the bikes at only 50cents per trip. Users can use the bikes to get to places, and not worry about keeping the bikes at home. Yet this service have been misused. Apart from the anger treatment from the teen, ofo bikes have also been seen chained up or stashed outside HDB flats, where they are not supposed to be.

Why can't we just treat this as an opportunity to make our lives easier? Why must abuse the system? As for the teen, don't act like a hero. You are basically beating up an object that cannot fight back. Hope you enjoy spending time behind a police jail.

BIKE SHARING TO ALLEVIATE TRANSPORT ISSUES IN SG? JOKE OF THE YEAR!

Interesting to see that Singapore is trying to move towards a bike-sharing concept. According to reports, a plan to get more people on bicycles for short journeys is coming closer to fruition, with the only stumbling block being to find sponsors for the scheme. The scheme is expected to run into millions.

But, if all goes as planned, the pilot will be launched in stages in the Jurong Lake District, Marina Bay, Tampines and Pasir Ris from the fourth quarter of this year. Sentosa might also get their own bike-sharing scheme. Seems like the idea for bicycle sharing is gaining traction in Singapore. Will we see this national scheme take off?
