Yesterday, property developer EcoWorld made a green move and signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Singapore-based oBike Malaysia Sdn Bhd to provide a stationless smart-bike-sharing system to EcoWorld developments.

With this collaboration, Eco Grandeur will be the first EcoWorld project to kick-start the smart-bike-sharing system.

oBike operates in 10 countries such as Singapore, Malaysia, Taiwan, Thailand, Australia, the UK, Switzerland and Netherland.

As Malaysian township developers are going strong at hitting the green building index, the collaboration with oBike will definitely help kickstart a health lifestyle with its communities.

Eco World Development World Group Bhd president and CEO Datuk Chang Khim Wah expressed his delight at the growing cycling trend and that the fun is in line with the company’s mission.

“We have also provided a bicycle-for-hire scheme and this is already available in our Eco Botanic project in Iskandar Malaysia. In the Klang Valley, Eco Sanctuary boasts a 30km cycling path for its residents,” he added.

The 1.3-acre bike park in Eco Grandeur will start operating concurrently with the rest of the 15 retail outlets in Grandeur Labs by May 2018.
