These bicycles will be equipped with a smart locking system. The station locations will be close to bus stops for easy integration with public passenger transport systems.

During the rental period, users can temporarily lock the bicycle and unlock it again when needed. The completion of the rental is calculated when the user returns the bicycle to any station.
