### JUST RIDE IT, LAH!

In recent times, oBike and other bicycle rental services are taking Singapore by storm. For some, it is an alternative form of transport over shorter distances that will save precious time or money.

How much money or time can we save if we ride a bike instead of taking a train?

Let’s say you’re travelling from Toa Payoh to Somerset, which is 4.9 km away, with the time required and cost of taking the train at 15 min and $0.97 respectively. We’ll assume that the cost of renting a bike is $0.50 per 15 min.
