Kinmen launches K Bike public rental system
Taipei, April 16 (CNA) Kinmen County government launched K Bike, a public rental bicycle system on Sunday, encouraging residents and visitors to cycle around the 150-square-kilometer island county which is located about 6 km from China's Fujian Province.
The launch ceremony was held at Zhongzheng Park in Jinhu Township, with Deputy Kinmen County Magistrate Wu Cheng-tien, Legislator Yang Cheng-wu and Tsai Hsi-hu, head of Jinhu Township, taking a test ride around nearby Tai Lake, a 40-hectare manmade lake next to the park.
There are 29 K Bike kiosks (stations) around the island at 26 sites, with 500 bicycles in service. Users can rent bikes at one kiosk and return them to any other kiosk 24 hours a day.
Users can use the K Bike system free of charge for the first month. After that county will offer the first hour free of cost and rental of a K Bike at NT$10 (US$0.33) for the first 30 minutes and up to NT$150 a day.
Users can pay the rental fee with a credit card, Taipei's EasyCard, Kaohsiung's I-Pass or China Union Pay card, a card issued by a Chinese state-owned financial services corporation and held by most Chinese tourists at home and abroad. One card can be used to rent a maximum of four bikes at a time, said the county government.
