As one of the famous tourist destinations in Indonesia, Yogyakarta realizes the importance of transportation to accommodate tourists who want to get around the city. For this reason, bicycle rental services using the application is one of the right solutions.
DyCode collaborates with JogjaBike and DycodeX to create a bike-sharing application that makes it easy to rent bicycles with a mobile application. This application is connected to the designated bikes, so users can monitor how long the bike is used and determine its route. Some of the main features in this JogjaBike application include smart lock using QR Code, real-time route calculation, and emergency contact when there are obstacles in using JogjaBike.
The app is quite simple. After downloading the application from Google Playstore or iOS Appstore, users are asked to register first. Users can see where JogjaBike is available which is spread over several stations. When riding a bicycle, users can find out the route from current position to the station along with its distance (in kilometers). When an emergency situation occurs such as a bicycle damage or an error during lock / unlock, the user can directly contact JogjaBike officers who will come soon to help. Users can also see travel history using bike-sharing, and how much it costs. As per December 2018, JogjaBike charges a tariff of IDR 10,000 for one hour of usage.
This bicycle and bike-sharing management system app is one step to realize smart city with a transportation mode that is integrated with mobile technology. The DyCode team designed this app by putting forward the full integration of the entire system so that the hardware and software are interconnected in a bike-sharing ecosystem.
