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.

Visitors may rent one bike at a time with an iPass or a credit card. Please make sure to let the sensor read the card when returning the vehicle. The iPass must contain a value of NT$10 or more in order to pay. If the payment exceeds the remaining amount in the card, no payment will be made but the vehicle may still be returned.
