Abstract
This study aims to discuss the possibility of developing a public bike – sharing system in Ho Chi Minh City, Viet Nam (HCMC). It focuses on two key issues: first are the advantages and disadvatages of promoting the use of bicycles and district 1, the central district of Ho Chi Minh City in implementing a bike - sharing system, and second are a number of solutions to address existing challenges regarding the development of this system. This study employs three methods: survey, in-depth interview and observation. The findings present seven advantages and five disadvantages in promoting the bike-sharing system and three solutions for improving the conditions of District 1 in adopting this system.
