A new public bike service centre is put into use in Hangzhou.
The citizen can just walk in the service centre; take a bike to the lock gate; put the smart card to the card reader; then go.
The renting and returning steps are much simpler.
Without the locking post, the new service centre can hold 300 bikes while the traditional service centre of the same area can only hold 140 bikes.
This service centre is located at the southern square of the East Train Station, with 260 square meters.
The exit contains three parts: a “Renting passage” area and a “returning passage” area and a free passage.
A lock gate like the one in the metro station is put in each “renting” and “returning” passage.
