Bike-sharing in Shenzhen
    2017-June-28  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

Shenzhen, a former small fishing village and now a modern international city, is always eager to experience the latest technology. Today, a new bike-sharing system makes its presence here, rapidly receiving thumbs-up from the public.

Bike-sharing is a system designed for citizens commuting within a short distance where traffic is often jammed due to the dense population. This system was first modeled in China by Hu Weiwei, a smart young woman working in Beijing. She is the founder of Mobike. Ever since then, bike-sharing has been winning the hearts of citizens in Shenzhen. Living in such a fast-paced city, people like the idea of renting a bike with just a cell phone.

As one of the most urbanized cities in China, Shenzhen has benefited a lot from this system because people’s lifestyles have become greener. With fewer people visiting clinics or hospitals for lack of physical exercise and less carbon dioxide or other harmful substances released into the air with the advent of bike-sharing, more and more people are embracing this new lifestyle and are getting multiple benefits from it.

However, just like everything else, bike-sharing also has its disadvantages. Some people have been complaining that rental bikes should not flock to places where paths are designed mainly for pedestrians, such as Shenzhen Bay and some other parks.

Now people, especially parents with their children visiting those places, have to watch out for bikes. Personally, I think the best way to solve this problem would be to limit the number of bikers and pave some bike lanes in such places.

All in all, bike-sharing has its own disadvantages, but it is doubtlessly changing Shenzhen and even China in a mostly positive way.
