Kaohsiung YouBike2.0 Exceeds 10 Million Ridership

This year marks the first anniversary since Kaohsiung YouBike2.0 started operation. At 20:19 on August 4, the public bicycle sharing service reached the milestone of 10 million ridership. The record shows how Kaohsiung citizens are fond of using YouBike that has obviously become one of the best ways to commute to school and work.
According to the Transportation Bureau of Kaohsiung City Government, if calculated based on the total population of 2.76 million citizens, a ridership of 10 million persons means that each person has used the service at least 3.6 times. So far, there are over 650,000 membership cards being registered. In the past year, there was an average of 770,000 persons using the service per month. Before the pandemic alert was put in place this year, the service saw as many as 1.28 million users in March, with daily ridership as high as 48,000 persons.
Kaohsiung YouBike2.0 reached the milestone of 10 million ridership on August 4. The 10 millionth rider rented a bike at the station on Boai Road and Minghua Road intersection (northeast side) and returned it at Liouhe Park (Cisian Road) at 20:19. The lucky rider will receive PX Mart gift certificates worth NT$ 10,000 and a commemorative iPass card from YouBike Co. Ltd., and the two riders before and after this lucky rider will each receive a sports bag and a commemorative iPass card.
The three most popular YouBike stations are MRT Aozihdi Station (Exit 4), THSR Zuoying Station, and MRT Kaohsiung Arena Station (Exit 2), with an average of 11,087 users, 7,471 users, and 6,975 per month, respectively.
According to the Transportation Bureau, to promote the public bicycle sharing system, Kaohsiung City Government and YouBike have worked together and established over 973 YouBike stations with 8,960 public bicycles at traffic nodes, schools, and commercial districts across Kaohsiung in just one year. Even in remote areas, the number of stations has been significantly increased from 85 City Bike (the previous system) stations to 294 YouBike stations.
For those who rely on public transportation such as MRT, LRT, city buses, ferries, and Taiwan Railway, YouBike rental stations have been set up at major stations throughout the city as a last-mile solution. The Transportation Bureau also provides various transfer discount schemes to YouBike users to help alleviate their transportation expenses.
For the first 30 minutes of using Kaohsiung YouBike2.0, the city government provides a subsidy of NT$5, so users only need to pay NT$5. Passengers who use e-ticket iPass for round trips and transfer using YouBike and MRT, LRT, city buses, ferries, or Taiwan Railway (one-way transfer: Taiwan Railway to YouBike) will receive discounts based on the types of tickets and also an additional NT$5 as a subsidy for the transfer. Passengers can also use MenGo monthly passes to enjoy unlimited free rides of YouBike for the first 30 minutes. By combining different modes of public transportation, the Transportation Bureau provides seamless first-mile and last-mile services to passengers.
