Bike-sharing Companies Are In a Big Trouble !

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.

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.
