Companies are required to fulfill responsibilities such as user rights protection, vehicle dispatching and data security. They are also encouraged to actively improve service quality and jointly maintain market order.
Specifically, there are 20 indicators on credit evaluation in the bike-sharing industry with a possible total of 450 points. Indicators are divided into two categories, namely bonus indicators and deductions. There are four bonus indicators with an upper limit of 100 points, and 16 reduction indicators with a limit of 350 points.
The indicators are closely related to industry development and management. For example, in order to protect users’ rights and interests, three indicators are put forth, including focusing on capital management, data security and the build quality of the shared-bikes. Enterprises that fail to submit capital storage reports in time, have network security accidents or cause casualties due to bike quality, will see points deducted from their scores.
