UBike System Improvement / Bike sharing system

UBike System Improvement



The purpose of "YouBike" is to encourage citizens to use low-pollution and low-energy-consumption bike sharing by deploying the short-distance transit vehicles. However, the system now transports bicycles between full and empty rental stations by truck, which leads to a result cross to the purpose: increasing air pollution. The concept of the new system stimulates citizens to have higher preference to use the Ubike for reverse commuting, so as to replace the need for trucks. Reduction of price calculated by this system creates a favorable loop to actual environmentally friendly life.

A simple solution that works. It's a good way to get to work.
I am really grateful to iF Design Talent Award for appreciating my concept of redesign the public bike system. Also thanks to my advisers of my department - Communications Design of Shih-Chien University. Hoping that my design would enhance the ecosystem and make our world a better place.
