VAB / Products and Applications


VAB (vend a bike) is a public bike sharing system. Inspired by the idea of beverage vending machines, we have come up with a public bike sharing system which is both environmentally friendly and space-saving. Just like a vending machine, VAB is easily accessible around a building or at the corner of a street. Different from the traditional space-taking bike sharing system, VAB keeps the sidewalk clear for pedestrians. Whenever a bike is needed, people could rent a bike from VAB and return the bike to the machine when people finish their ride. VAB ensures pedestrians not only right of way but also a safe and joyful living environment.
