Jobike: An alternative vehicle solution in Dhaka
Bicycle-rental service JoBike, which has now rolled out its service in Dhaka, after a year of its successful piloting in Cox's Bazar, plans to transform the two-wheelers as one of the main modes of transport in the congested city.
In Dhaka, the service is provided in Mirpur DOHS with 50 bicycles on a pilot basis.
To rent a bicycle from Jobike, one has to download the mobile application and open an account. The app would show the nearby docks with available bikes. After entering the payment information, a QR code will be provided, which needs to be scanned to unlock the bikes from the dock.
In Dhaka, for each minute the rider will be charged Tk 1.
Jobike has appointed some retail points around their service area, where riders can top-up their account balance and pay for their service.
The company plans to cover major parts of the country within a year.
