Missing piece in the new public bicycle service puzzle (2)

By Lisa Carducci (China Daily)

So, I went to a police station and asked directly where to apply for a card. The three policemen pointed to a man renting bicycles 10 meters away, adding that I didn't need any card and only had to pay 20 yuan per day. I insisted on the new public bicycle service in Beijing; they had never heard of it.

The owner of rental bikes had heard about the new program, but didn't know much. Once at home, I checked whether my suspicion was right: We were effectively in Dongcheng, in the part called Chongwen before the merger two years ago.

I also checked on a variety of websites, in several languages, and never found the formal and complete information on how to ban ka.

Meanwhile, I continue to go on foot.
