From next January, bike-sharing users must use a new parking system or risk being fined and banned for up to a year.

As part of a framework announced in March 2018 to tackle indiscriminate parking, offenders will be charged $5 each time by the licensed bike-sharing operators. Those who offend three times or more in a calendar year can be banned from using bike-sharing services for up to a year.

The Land Transport Authority (LTA) yesterday said it will start installing Quick Response (QR) codes at public bicycle parks island-wide from the end of this month.

To end their trip, users must scan the QR code and park the bike properly or run afoul of the new regulations.
