With an electronic managerial system, YouBike provides rental services throughout the city. The user may rent one bike in a place and return it in another. YouBike makes up for what lacks in the greater public transport system. It is hoped that, with YouBike, people will want to take public transport more. YouBike promotes an environment-friendly lifestyle and a green commute culture.
