Sunsuria Berhad is introducing a Bicycle Sharing Programme in its flagship development Sunsuria City, a 525-acre freehold integrated township which has an estimated gross development value (GDV) of RM10 billion.
Sunsuria City was developed based on three key principles: Smart, Livable and Sustainable. And as per the principles, the community Bicycle Sharing Programme was introduced to build a green cum low-carbon township.
As to make this programme a success, Sunsuria has formed a private company under the name of Sunsuria Oride Sdn Bhd and formed an exclusive partnership with Oride (M) Sdn Bhd. Thus, joint-venture was initiated recently by Sunsuria and Oride promised to deliver a healthier and eco-friendlier lifestyle that embraces innovation and community interaction.
The joint-venture was signed between Sunsuria CEO Koong Wai Seng and Oride CEO Harry Wong.
The Sunsuria – Oride Bicycle Sharing Programme allows users to rent bicycles from designated bicycle stations. The programme also includes modern bicycle locking devices, site controllers, public bicycles and a smart control management system.
This system records bicycle rental transactions, availability status and user’s information. Sunsuria will also be launching a mobile application with self-rent services in the future. This mobile application will provide information such as daily consumption information, online directory as well as other value-added services.
As for the bicycles, they are made of highly durable and corrosion-resistant aluminium alloy with 24” frame wheels.
The Bicycle Sharing Programme will be rolled out with the introduction of bicycle-friendly and pedestrian-friendly walkways across key components of Sunsuria City, starting from Xiamen University Malaysia to the Express Rail Link Salak Tinggi train station
Since there are plans to expand the bicycle stations across the entire township, dedicated and special bicycle lanes will be built to help promote a healthier lifestyle in Sunsuria City. With this in place, Sunsuria hopes to reduce the need for personal vehicle trips and to encourage the habit of cycling within the community.
In conjunction with this event, Sunsuria also signed a Memorandum of Collaboration with Xiamen University Malaysia for establishing the Sunsuria Bicycle Sharing station at the East Entrance of the university.
