To stop inappropriate parking of shared bikes, Beijing's Dongcheng and Xicheng districts will start a pilot program that designates certain areas fit to park, using hi-tech assistance to enforce related rules.
Dongcheng District will mark nearly 600 sites for parking shared bikes, mainly near bus hubs, subway stations and shopping centers.
Users will know from their mobile phone app where to put them. The project will possibly start as early as June.
Dongcheng and Xicheng districts are also planning to use "electronic fence" to curb illegal parking.
Riders who park bikes outside the allowed areas cannot lock them and will continue to be charged.
The capital has increased its administration of shared bike parking as they become a popular, cheap choice for dodging traffic jams.
Haidian, Xicheng and Shijingshan districts have designed some 2,000 parking areas for shared bikes. Xicheng has also singled out 10 streets where riders are banned from parking.
