While checking out the latest development in town, I came across a smart bike rental service. This is not a new idea (KL has oBike), but is lately introduced in the city by the company, CycleDios.
How does one utilise the bicycle that is parked by the roadside?
First, download the CycleDios app from App Store (iOS) or PlayStore (Android) to your smart phone. Then, register for an account via the mobile app. If you already have an account, sign in.
Purchase credit to begin using the bicycle rental service. Search for a bike, and complete the application for insurance.
Once that is done, unlock the bike by scanning the QR code. Once unlocked, you are free to ride it, at a rate of RM1.20 per 30 minutes.
When you are done, park the bicycle at the nearest designated parking station. Manually pull the bike’s lock to end your rental. Remember this crucial step or you will be charged continually.
Although I did not rent a bicycle myself, I think it is convenient for tourists to have access to a bicycle for short distance visits around town.
Have you rented a CycleDios bike before, or used a similar bike renting service?
