A cool new idea has reached Jinan. It’s Mobikes, bikes you can rent for 1 yuan per half hour. Unlike similar bike services in the US, the bikes are very cheap and you can leave them anywhere and pick them up anywhere. You need to pay 200 rmb ($29 approx.) to get the app needed. Once you’ve paid that, it’s just 15¢ for 30 minutes. The bikes are new and you don’t really need to own your own bike anymore.
