On December 1st, we installed the largest number of bicycle parking ports in the Tokyo area in the empty space under the elevated railroad, which is a 1-minute walk from JR Okachimachi Station, and between Akihabara and Okachimachi Station operated and managed by our company. We have installed ports in commercial facilities and empty spaces under the elevated railway lines. We aim to improve convenience and ease of migration for the people of the town.
We named the section between Akihabara and Okachimachi Station as "AKI-OKA" under the elevated road, which makes you want to walk, with the aim of being able to be used by many people, starting with "2k540 AKI-OKA ARTISAN" after 2010. , "Chabara AKI-OKA MARCHE", "Okachimachi Ramen Yokocho AKI-OKA GOURMET", and "SEEKBASE AKI-OKA MANUFACTURE" in December last year, we have been developing themes.
In addition, Chari Chari started the service in Fukuoka City in February 2018 as a "share cycle service of 4 yen per minute" operated by neuet Co., Ltd., and it is used more than 3 million times in total and more than 270,000 times a month. It's a share cycle. From April 2020, as a joint project with Fukuoka City, we are currently developing more than 340 bicycle parking ports and about 1500 bicycles, starting service in Nagoya City from July 15, 2020, and further 2020 9 The service will also start in the Tokyo area (Akihabara-Ueno-Oshiage-Kinshicho) from April 16th.
With the launch of the service in the Tokyo area, neuet will create "the next habit of moving around town" in each city from the viewpoint of improving access to existing facilities and improving the mobility of the city. In collaboration with Co., Ltd., we have started to introduce ports.
By installing a bicycle parking port along the JR line, we will realize more convenient movement as the last one mile from the station to the destination, and not only will it be possible to effectively utilize the vacant space under the elevated railroad, which is difficult to utilize, but also around the station and eventually to the destination. I hope that it will be useful as a countermeasure against illegally parked bicycles in the entire town.
In the future, we will improve the convenience of our customers by further expanding the number of bicycle parking ports in the area, and we will also consider initiatives that will lead to more enjoyable shopping at commercial facilities around the station, along with service improvements. I will.

By installing a share cycle bicycle parking port that can be used according to the terrain and the situation of each place, we will not only improve the mobility along the railway line, but also improve the bicycle parking port under the elevated by daily patrol by the management crew. , It is also possible to take charge of cleaning.
