A number of bikes which bear the name of Boseh are seen on a corner of the Cibeunying park in Bandung city, West Java. For the past year you can see the bike being parked in the park and other spots in Bandung.
Boseh bike which is the abbreviation of Bike on The Street Everybody Happy uses the Bike sharing facilities that are provided by the municipal government of Bandung. The facility is integrated with E-Money facilities in the form of smart card for the bike loan.
Currently, there are 200 bike units in 20 bike stations around Bandung. Residents that want to use the facility need to register themselves when they will use the bike with their electronic ID card. This facility is supported by PT. Aino Indonesia, a tech-company of UGM that processes payments. Aino is the integrator of bike loan system in terms of non-cash payment since 2018.
“This system enables users to do payments without cash. What’s more important is that it supports the National Non-Cash Movement,” said Director of PT. Aino Indonesia, Syafri Yuzal, on Sunday (29/7) to reporters in Cibeunying, Bandung.
To use the facility, Syafri said users just needed to tap the smart card in the blue box installed at the bike station and fill in their PIN. When returning the bike, they just have to park the bike in the dock until it is locked automatically and they tap the card back to do the bike return process. Boseh is equipped with GPS and data of the person using the bike. It costs Rp1,000 per hour and Rp2,000 for the next hour.
The system is also applied in other public facilities in Bandung, such as electronic ticket of Trans Metro Bandung, 445 units of ON Street Parking and 12 Vending Machines.
The non-cash electronic payment system is also applied for public facilities in Jogja with Trans Jogja, Trans Metro Bandung and Trans Jakarta, electronik parking in Jakarta, Bandung and Tabanan Bali, and electronic payment in 10 cities.
