Cycling has always been a favoured pastime for those living in Hong Kong and with the launch of Gobee in April 2017, cycling is even more accessible locally. Gobee is the first phone app designed as a bike sharing platform and this exciting new concept has certainly created a huge buzz within the local community.
How the app works is simple. By using location services on your phone, users can locate the nearest bike and unlock it in under 3 seconds by scanning the bike’s QR code. The cost of renting their bikes starts from HKD$5 for every 30 minutes.
Founder Raphael Cohen aims to use the technology to enhance the appeal of cycling. Having lived in Hong Kong for 6 years, he realised that cycling isn’t as big here as it could be. Thus, his business aims to convert the hobby of bike riding into a habit in order to reduce air pollution and congestion whilst being able to promote a healthier lifestyle.
With over 2000 bikes on the road and more to come, cycling can be made more convenient for many. The eye-catching neon green bikes can easily be found parked around the popular cycling areas of Ma On Shan, Sha Tin, and Tai Po. With Gobee.bike, you no longer have to go through the painful process of finding bike rental stores before getting extorted by them. Moreover, the flexible rental duration of these bikes
and the freedom to park them anytime, anywhere can give users the ultimate satisfaction of using the Gobee.bike platform.
