On May 17, the Beijing Municipal Transport Commission imposed administrative penalties on Harlows illegal vehicle delivery, fined 50,000 yuan, and restricted the delivery of operational vehicles in the six districts of the city.

Shared bicycle threshold becomes higher and multi-site Vehicle Quota decreases
It is understood that the Beijing regulatory authorities talked mainly about the excessive use of shared bicycles by enterprises. In fact, since 2017, many places have imposed a ban on sharing bicycles.
Taking Beijing as an example, the authorities said that by the end of April 2018, the total number of bicycles shared in Beijing had been controlled at about 1.9 million, which remained until April this year, down about 19% from the peak of 2.35 million.
Not only Beijing, but also other big cities are subtracting from sharing bicycles. The total number of bicycles in the main urban area of Chengdu has been reduced from 1.8 million to 750,000, and the total number of shared bicycles in Shenzhen has also been reduced from 89,000 to more than 600,000.
Quantity control is becoming more and more meticulous, accurate to the region. Beijing authorities said that after investigation and visits, the Xicheng District of Beijing has determined the demand scale of no more than 60,000 vehicles in spring, summer and autumn and no more than 50,000 vehicles in winter.
In addition to quantity control, many places are still exploring how to manage shared bicycles. On April 29, Guangzhou issued a tender for 400,000 shared bicycle quotas. It is proposed that three Internet bicycle rental operators be identified through public bidding.
This means that the threshold for entering the field of shared bicycle is raised. Industry insiders said that this basically follows the exit rules of the competent and the mediocre.
Visit: Fewer cars, Users claim membership is not worth it
Recently, a visit by CNN reporters found that in Beijing, for example, the number of shared bicycles has decreased significantly, sometimes there are few or even none at the entrance of a subway.
And a strange phenomenon is that in densely populated urban areas, there are fewer shared bicycles and more suburban vehicles. Operations and maintenance personnel told CNN reporters that urban areas are not allowed to be put into operation.
Although the popular peak of sharing bicycle riding has passed, reporters found that userswillingness to share bicycles by riding is not low, especially now the mainstream sharing bicycles do not need a deposit, users use it without the worry of refunding the deposit.
As of the end of 2018, 235 million bicycle users had shared bicycles, according to Erie Consulting Report. In an interview with a CNN reporter, a user said, Its not worthwhile to be a member after running a member but without a car.

A batch of shared bicycles to the elimination node?
In fact, the number of shared bicycles is not small at present. According to public data, as of the end of April 2019, 1.91 million vehicles had been reported in Beijing.
Why is this different from user perception? Shared bicycle insiders told Xinhua. com that, in fact, many shared bicycles on the market have reached the upper limit of service life, so it seems that there are more cars, but actually there are fewer cars available.
Shared bicycle sprang up in 2014 and 2015. At that time, enterprises put in a large number of shared bicycles, and the common design life of shared bicycles is only four years. At present, it just arrives at a number of time nodes for the elimination of bicycles.
More cars cant ride is an embarrassment facing the industry at present, which requires enterprises to clean up damaged vehicles in time and refine their operation. Recently, Mobai lost 200,000 damaged vehicles in Guangzhou. Mobai said that sharing bicycles along the refined road is the future trend.
In the first half of the development of shared bicycles, sharing bicycles did not restrict their delivery, and there were many disorderly parking phenomena, which brought new problems to urban management.
Liu Daizhong, Director of China Sustainable Cities Program, World Resources Research Institute, said, The intervention of relevant authorities in the regulation of bicycles sharing and quantitative regulation is of positive significance to urban travel and industry development. But it is better to establish an effective third-party management mechanism.
