Bike-sharing Companies Are In a Big Trouble !

Popularity 3Viewed 1727 times 2017-5-5 08:34 |System category:News| reasonable, becoming, invented, Trouble, machine

Technology is bringing us back to our traditional mean of transportation. Bike-sharing is becoming more and more popular nowadays and making our commutes greener. It seems to me that the time machine has been invented and allowed us to travel back in time to where bikes were the most widely used transportation mean. the price is also reasonable. Therefore, making it easier for people to afford. 

Yet, a lot of uncivilized acts have been carried out by some users or probably by those who think that bike-sharing companies are their rivals or the killers of their businesses. Bikes have been vandalized, thrown into rivers, QR boards are removed or scrached, brought homes and repainted to be used privately. 

Poor security needs to be improved and new more regulations and law enforcements have to be issued. the companies should implement more tracking systems such as security cameras and GPS. However, the cost of these gadgets is high and will lead to the rise ot the bike fare. 

If this is the case , bike-sharing companies will not survive for long because the users might not find it affordable. Some statistics pointed out that China needs 1.3 trillion US dollars in order to clear the air and make the skies blue again. I think that Chinese goverment could get involved in this new innovation and try to contribute and help to solve some problems such as air pollution and traffic congestion.

'A' is a definite article. It is used for things that are countable. 'Trouble' isn't countable.

I knew what you meant. You can say in a little trouble. Or a lot of trouble. And in my opinion in a big trouble sounds pretty cool. You could say in a big mess. I think you can say in a big trouble if you want to.

I called this a couple of months ago. The big problem is the value of Chinese currency and the buying power of average Chinese. It makes profit margins for stuff like this too thin. In places like the west the capitalists can charge more just because people have the money and buying power - and the cost of living is used by them to absorb the masses surplus. We have a high min wage in Australia but we pay more for everything, and the only reason is because we can.

As an outsider, you should not jump to a conclusion like this based on the very shallow things you see. The real intention of the bike-sharing companies is not for the convenience of users but for earliest occupation of the market which has great potential for attracting huge investment.

There is no problem at all, you are over worried, man!
There is no trouble at all, OK? Those bikes are no more than tools to get more money, so the companies do not give a damn.
