Public bike sharing is making a comeback in Singapore, more than three years after an earlier scheme was scrapped due to low ridership.

A group of investors, led by avid cyclist Francis Chu, is planning to launch a pilot programme here as early as January next year.

The new project, said Mr Chu, is modelled after successful bike-sharing schemes in London and Paris.

‘A successful bike-sharing scheme will not only help increase the number of cyclists here but also create safer roads for them,’ he said. The 51-year-old, who is also a founder of local cycling group Lovecycling.sg, said he wants to make cycling more viable as a form of transportation for commuters here.
