TAIPEI--Bicycle maker Giant Manufacturing Co. has won a tender to build a public bicycle rental system in Taichung, called iBike, that the city hopes will complement its new Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) system, the Taichung Transportation Bureau said Friday.

The bureau plans to set up 20 bicycle rental stations around the city by the end of 2014 in conjunction with the opening of the city's BRT system in the second half of the year, according to the bureau.

The bicycle company has gained considerable experience from building and operating Taipei's YouBike system, the bureau said, and it expressed the hope that Giant would use the experience to expedite the development of the system in Taichung.
