Bikes Now Banned on These Shanghai Streets

In just a few short months, we've seen the bike sharing craze take over the city, literally, cause injuries and even deaths.

And, thankfully, Huangpu officials have noticed the chaos too.

Crackdowns on bike shares have been in the works and yesterday, the downtown district's government put into place measures that will regulate roads where you can - and cannot - ride or park your ride, to include your personal wheels.

Areas include People's Square, Yuyuan Garden, the Bund, Xintiandi, Nanjing Pedestrian Street and Tianzifang, along with 27 other commercial streets (listed below).


The major bike share companies have been told to remove their respective roadsters from restricted areas by April 19 and if they fail to do so, they'll be fined RMB20 for each bike not removed. Riders who fail to park bicycles in designated areas will also be fined between RMB20-50 by traffic police.

A high-tech electronic fence will also be installed around some banned areas to help with parking abuse.
