The model aims to make it easier for passengers of Bus Rapid Transit (BRT), reduce traffic jam and protect the environment.

Hanoi will pilot an electric two-wheeler sharing system in Ha Dong district operated by a smartphone app.

The system, connecting Aeon mall Ha Dong with BRT Van Khe station, will start from the third quarter of 2021 until the end of 2023.

The electric two-wheelers will be available for shared use, including 50 motorbikes made by Honda Vietnam Company and 10 bicycles of QIQ Vietnam Company (a member of Singapore’s QIQ Global Company).

Customers will use a smartphone app to rent a motorbike or a bicycle. Their subsequent use of the electric two-wheeler will be monitored through management software.

Relevant agencies have been tasked to integrate the public two-wheeler sharing system with the BRT system.

The model aims to make it easier for BRT passengers, reduce traffic jams and protect the environment.

After the trial period, the Hanoi People’s Committee will assess the outcomes and ponder whether to expand the system throughout the city.

The municipal government has assigned relevant units to map out the network of the public electric two-wheeler sharing service, ensuring its connection with shopping malls, office buildings, and schools.

The capital city is developing a mass transit system, which aims to serve 30 to 35% of commuters in the inner city and 15% of citizens in satellite towns.

Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam’s southern metropolis, will also trial a public bicycle sharing scheme in downtown areas from August in an effort to limit private vehicles. Under the scheme, called Mobike, as many as 388 bicycles will be parked at 43 docks in Districts 1 and 3, the heart of the city, ready for people to borrow.
