It is a bit difficult for foreigners to rent “Little Orange”

Citizens call for multiple measures to improve supporting services to help Quanzhou become a tourist city

Quanzhou Net reported on November 17 (Text by reporter Du Wanqiong and Wei Xiaofang/Photo) Recently, Mr. Cao, a Taiwan compatriot living in Xiamen, called the Quanzhou Evening News 24-hour hotline 96339 to report that a few days ago, when he and his friends visited Quanzhou city, I planned to use Quanzhou’s public motorcycle “Little Orange” to travel around the ancient city, but I never thought that when I scanned the QR code to borrow a bike using the WeChat applet, a pop-up screen popped up, which read: “Public motorcycles are currently not available for rental by users outside mainland China. “.

When Mr. Cao scanned the QR code to borrow a bike, the page displayed: “Public motorcycles are currently not available for rental by users outside of mainland China.”

There is no option to enter passport information on the page Foreigners cannot register an account

At about 10 o’clock yesterday, the reporter came to the shared bicycle parking site in front of Liming University. Wang, a Taiwanese student majoring in municipal engineering technology at the School of Civil Architecture of the school, came to a “Little Orange” and scanned the QR code on the “Little Orange” through the scan function of WeChat. The mobile phone page immediately jumped to the login page of “Xiaocheng Travel”. After entering the Taiwan resident certificate number and mobile phone number, the page popped up a reminder message that “the format of the certificate number is incorrect.” Classmate Wang said that he had used his Taiwan Resident Residence Permit to register in the WeChat applet and rented a “Minion” bicycle, but he had been unable to successfully rent a “Little Orange”.

Gu, a junior student from Malaysia who is also studying in the school of civil engineering at the school, also demonstrated the process of renting the “Little Orange” to reporters. After scanning the WeChat code to jump to the registration page of Xiaocheng Travel, he clicked the button for the ID number, and three options popped up: “ID Card”, “Mainland Travel Permit for Taiwan Residents” and “Hong Kong and Macau Permit”. Gu said that he always uses passport information registration software in mainland China. Because there is no option to enter passport information on the page, he has not been able to successfully register and rent “Little Orange”.

There is no option to enter passport information on the registration page

Because the registration pages for “Minions” and “Little Oranges” are the same, Gu was unable to rent “Minions” using WeChat. In order to be able to use the “Minions” and “Little Oranges”, he made many inquiries and learned that car rental cards could be purchased at an offline service center in Zhongshan Park.

Response:

Riding a motorcycle requires a facial recognition interface that only supports mainland residents.

Subsequently, the reporter contacted the relevant person in charge of Quanzhou Jiaofa Smart Travel Service Co., Ltd. The person in charge introduced that there are currently three ways to rent “Minions” and “Little Oranges”: one is to rent a car by “scanning the QR code”, that is, logging into the “Jiaofa Xiaocheng Travel” WeChat applet and scanning the QR code to rent a car; Through “card car rental”, that is, purchase a card and swipe it to rent a car; third, log in or register for the Quanchengtong APP and enter “Xiaocheng Travel” to rent a car. All three car rental methods require real-name registration before they can be used. However, currently online registration only supports documents such as “Second Generation Resident Identity Card”, “Mainland Travel Permit for Taiwan Residents” and “Hong Kong and Macau Permit”. The company’s system currently does not support the registration method using passport information mentioned by Gu.

Citizens scan the QR code to rent “Little Orange”

Why can people from Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan scan the QR code to rent “Minions” through the WeChat mini program, but cannot rent “Little Oranges” normally? The person in charge said that because “Little Orange” is an electric bicycle, according to relevant policies and regulations, users need to perform facial recognition before using it before they can rent the vehicle. The person in charge provided reporters with a relevant description of “WeChat’s face and body interface capabilities”. The description mentioned: “The interface is currently open to public beta for limited entities and industry categories, and is provided to business parties that meet the qualifications. When appropriate, It can be used in business scenarios. Currently, it only supports mainland residents holding second-generation ID cards.” The person in charge explained that because people from Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan cannot perform face recognition through the WeChat mini program, they cannot directly rent the “mini program” directly by scanning the WeChat QR code. orange”.

So, how can foreigners rent “Little Oranges” and “Minions”? The person in charge said that if foreigners need to rent a “little orange” or “minion”, they can bring their original valid documents and mobile phones to the offline service center to apply for a card, and they can swipe the card to rent.

suggestion:

Set up more convenient processing points to increase information publicity

So, how can we make it more convenient for overseas people who live, play, and work in Quanzhou to use “Minions” and “Little Oranges”? In this regard, all parties have come up with suggestions to assist the construction of Quanzhou as a tourist city.

Mr. Liu, a Taiwanese compatriot, said that because he likes Quanzhou, he often visits Quanzhou during his free weekends. He suggested that relevant units can cooperate with local hotels in Quanzhou to provide “Little Orange” car rental card processing services when foreigners, Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan tourists check in at the hotel, or jointly launch customized cycling cards to facilitate their better travel in Quanzhou. .

Xiao Xu, a Hong Kong student studying in Quanzhou, believes that more and more compatriots from Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan, as well as foreigners, are coming to Quanzhou to work, study and live. Quanzhou is a famous hometown of overseas Chinese, and there are also a particularly large number of Chinese and overseas Chinese returning home. This group should also be noted. She suggested that relevant units can go into campuses, communities, etc. to provide this group with information consultation and convenient card application services for “minions” and “little oranges” to help them solve the “last mile” problem of card application.

Citizen Ms. Wu suggested that relevant units set up more offline service centers or increase publicity in this area to let more overseas people know where to apply for cards. She believes that “minions” and “little oranges” application procedures can be set up at scenic spots or transportation hubs in the ancient city for foreigners.
