Abstract
Public bicycle service has experienced 15 years of development in Chinese cities, and mainland China is the world's largest public bicycle market. Choosing to use public bicycles is becoming more and more a daily habit of residents. Broadly speaking, public bicycles in Chinese cities include both public bikes with service stations and shared bicycles without service stations. Based on historical review and years of accumulated data, this paper reviews the development of general public bicycles in Chinese cities in the past 15 years. And the role of general public bicycles in China’s urban transportation system is analyzed. Finally, from the perspective of urban construction and management, some suggestions for the future development of public bicycles are put forward.
