Away) Tachikawa Base" opened. Reservations are now being accepted starting September 17th (Saturday).

■Opened Tachikawa Base as an experimental unmanned bicycle rental store.

RIDEAWAY is a bicycle rental shop based at Nakanoshima Station on the JR Nambu Line where people who want to refresh themselves with a sports bike or test ride a sports bike before purchasing can enjoy cycling, mainly along the Tama River Cycling Road.

This time, to allow more local customers to enjoy cycling on the Tama River Cycling Road, we have set up an unmanned store where you can rent sports bikes.

As the first step, earlier this year, the RIDEAWAY Tachikawa Base, which had been temporarily closed, was renovated and reopened as an experimental unmanned rental store.

■Can be used with a single smartphone by linking various systems

The operating company Symmetric's main business is web marketing support and system development for companies. When it comes to unmanned operations, we will leverage our strengths to create smart locks that are used in shared offices and other unmanned stores for rental reservations, departures, and returns, an identity verification system that can be implemented on LINE, and electronic payments such as PayPay. We have created a store that customers can comfortably use with just their smartphones by linking various systems such as this with our in-house reservation system.

■Experiment period and future prospects

The experimental period is scheduled for 6 months, and during this period we will aim to make the unmanned bicycle rental shop even easier to use by monitoring customer usage and questionnaires.

In the future, we aim to open multiple stores along the Tama River and expand to other cycling spots. We aim to establish an unmanned store operation that can increase the number of rental locations even with a minimum number of staff, and create a world where more people can enjoy sports bikes closer to home.
