Build a Bicycle Rental Startup for Short Term Commute Challenges Using SpotnStay Bicycle Rental Software

Cities are now full of gas-guzzling vehicles which not only pollute the environment but also make mobility worse. It is sometimes funnily said that in some metro cities, movement in traffic is made in hours not in minutes. Such is the situation and it is expected to deteriorate more. Traffic congestion and air pollution are taking a huge toll on the health of its citizens. Not to mention that car usage is highly linked to obesity and heart problems. There is one way to tackle all these issues, using a green mobility solution. Bicycles are by far the most preferred green mobility solution; they don’t pollute; easy to ride; cheap to maintain; affordable.

Once the ride is over, you can either make it mandatory for riders to park in a station or leave it by the side. The former is preferred for an entry-level startup like yours because of the low maintenance.

Yulu and Lime follow the above-explained business model. The app for this startup is the most vital because it must be good enough for riders to easily locate and ride.


Yulu is an Asia based sustainable mobility startup that has partnered with Uber and other bluechip companies for funding. They provide both bicycles and an electric bike for rental in the cities of their operation. In the cities they are operating, Yulu establishes cycle stations in many places and their cycles have GPS enabled locks with a QR code. Riders just need to book a cycle, reach a nearby station, scan QR code and enjoy riding.  Yulu is constantly working to bring new innovation into their app.
