The world’s first and largest smart bike-sharing company, Mobike is expanding its dockless bike-share services to Cyberjaya in partnership with Cyberview Sdn Bhd and Mastercard. The expansion is supported by the Sepang Municipal Council, with the aim of transforming cityscapes with its innovative solution.
Mobike’s entire fleet of over 7 million bikes are equipped with GPS and proprietary smart-lock technology that connect through the world’s largest mobile enabled IoT platform. Data insights from Mobike’s smart IoT platform can be leveraged to support city planners in improving cycling infrastructure and promote greater bike use amongst urban residents.
Ultimately, Mobike’s approach to expansion in Malaysia and around the world prioritises working closely with local businesses and government in order to tailor a bike-share model that best serves the unique needs of each market. Sanjey Chandran, Country Manager of Mobike Malaysia says: “Cyberjaya is recognised as a model for the development of smart cities in Malaysia, and we are pleased to be working with local businesses to advance the township’s transformation into a Global Tech Hub. In addition, our partnership with Mastercard and Cyberview complements Malaysia’s five-year development plan.”
Meanwhile, Mastercard is supporting Mobike’s expansion by integrating its digital payments service, Masterpass, with the smart bike’s mobile phone application so that riders can conveniently pay using their mobile phones.
