Singapore’s LTA to grant licences to 6 dockless bike-sharing operators

Singapore’s Land Transport Authority (LTA) will grant licences to six out of seven dockless bike-sharing operators including Chinese players, Mobike and ofo, and SG Bike by end-October.

According to the authority, Anywheel, Grabcycle and Qiqi Zhixiang will receive sandbox licences while GBikes failed to secure a licence as it ‘did not satisfy the assessment criteria’ of LTA’s implementation plan.

Operators holding a sandbox license will be limited to a fleet size of 1,000 and subject to stricter licence requirements. According to LTA, the move is to enable them to “manage their fleet responsibly before scaling up.”

Other limitations include the transmission of data to LTA, removal of indiscriminately parked bicycles, and QR code geo-fencing, and bans on users who repeatedly park their shared bicycles irresponsibly.

Licenced operators will face strict penalties if LTA’s conditions are not met. These may comprise up to $100,000 per non-compliance, fleet size reduction, or suspension or termination of licences.

LTA added that the fleet size of shared bicycles will be reviewed regularly. The rapid growth of shared bicycles in Singapore has led to safety hazards due to indiscriminate parking in public areas.

Many of these bicycles are also poorly utilised. In Singapore, the average utilisation rate for the entire shared bicycle population is slightly more than one trip per day, compared to three to six times a day in New York City and Chicago.
