Bicycle Sharing in Shinjuku, Chiyoda, Chuo, Minato and Koto—Borrow and Return Bikes Wherever You Like

The bicycle-sharing system allows you to borrow and return bicycles at any of several “cycle ports” (bicycle borrow/return locations) within the community, typically on a 24-hour basis.

This program started in Shinjuku City in October and is also available in Chiyoda, Chuo, Minato and Koto cities. If you register as a member, you can use any of the cycle ports in these communities.

The DoCoMo Bike Share/Shinjuku City Bicycle Sharing website (http://docomo-cycle.jp/shinjuku/en/) offers more information on how to use the program.
