Welcome October 2018!

Like last month, this October 2018 month is also pretty much quiet in terms of promotion from the Bike Sharing providers.

As you probably knew, oBike and Gbike are quitting Singapore. Check their respective section down below on how to get a refund.

So here we are. In October 2018, pricing structures are mostly the same like they were back in September 2018, except a few changes from Ofo and Mobike.

Here are their offers for October 2018:

Anywheel

Like last months before this month, unfortunately in October 2018, Anywheel price is still showing price in CNY although I’m physically here in Singapore.

According to the app, deposit is CNY 99, while the charge is CNY 0.5/30 min/trip.

Grab Cycle

One of the impact Obike is quitting Singapore is that Grab Cycle – which happen to be partnering with Obike to able to use Obike fleets of bikes – stop accepting new members for the time being. If you already registered before, then you can continue and renew, otherwise you are unable to register as new – at least for the time being.

On top of pay-as-you-go for $0.50/30 min, here are their prices for October 2018. They remain the same like it was for September 2018.

Grab Cycle Price Per Day
7 days $1.00 $0.1428
30 days $3.00 $0.1

Grab Cycle pay-as-you-go plan requires $5 deposit with minimum balance of $5.

G-Bike

G-Bike – one of local bike sharing providers which also follows oBike path – ceasing its services last 7th July 2018. Read the details here on StraitTimes.com. No wording on their official Facebook page though.

Good bye G-Bike. We barely know you.

Ofo Bike

Like last months, this month, Ofo Bike is offering what they called as Group Pass. It’s  a pass where you need to buy more than one to get discount.

Changes in Ofo Bike prices for October 2018 compare to previous month:

1) Last month there’s 7 days subscription plan priced at $1.59, now no more.

2) Adding 60 and 90 days subscription plan

Obike

In case you don’t know yet, oBike is ceasing its operation in Singapore. Read here. If you previously deposited money on them, do check on their official Facebook page, on the refund process but this is the statement they were giving on July last month, “oBike is also working closely with relevant parties  on a solution to refund the user deposits. The entire refund process will be announced once these details are finalised”. Which they didn’t indicate when it’s going to be finalised.

1) Last month, there’s this 360 days subscription plan priced at $88.88 but now no more.

SG Bike Price Per Day
30 days $5* $0.167
90 days $10* $0.111
180 days $30* $0.167

* unlike other bike sharing providers which offers unlimited 2 hours/ride, SG Bike limits the ride to just 30 minutes/ride.

And the cheapest goes to…

we are the champion jilaxzone.com winning your goal
The Winner for Cheapest Bike Sharing Provider for this month is…

Some exclusions: since GrabCycle is currently not accepting new members and its fleet doesn’t grow as much as the rest other bike sharing providers, I shall exclude it from the comparisons below. Same goes to SG Bike, its fleets of bicycles at this point of time are quite limited in numbers and locations.

So, for short term (7-30 days), Ofo Bike is the winner.

For medium (60-90 days), Mobike is the winner.

For the long term (180 days and above), Mobike is the winner.

My Recommendation:

Like my recommendation I gave last month, each months, Bike Sharing providers will surely try to come out with even greater promotions to win the crowds. And while it seems now the Bike Sharing market is already saturated with so many providers, but who knows if next months, there’s a new Bike Sharing provider coming to Singapore with FREE-to-ride promotion. Knowing that fact,  my recommendation to you is to get only the 1 month pass from Ofo Bike. While it’s relatively cheap at $0.233/day (Ofo Bike), at the same time you don’t need to commit for so long. When next month the new pricing is coming out, you can switch to one with better offer.
