Pedaru is a bicycle sharing platform in Japan. We take unused bicycles from owners who no longer need them, and rent them to our users through our mobile application.

Using our mobile application, you can locate bicycles near you. To unlock a bicycle, press the unlock button on the main page of the application and enter the registration number of the bicycle. The application will provide you with the unlock code to open our lock. Once you are done with your bicycle ride, simply close the lock and press the end the bicycle ride button! Please remember to always park at a Pedaru designated parking location.

All payments happen through our mobile application using any credit card of your choice. At this stage, we support Mastercard, Visa and American Express. We use the mobile payment services of Stripe.com, one of the most secure and reputable payment processors available.
Is the payment system secure and safe?
Yes absolutely! We are using Stripe.com payment services, one of the most secure and reputable payment processors available. Companies such as Facebook, Underarmour, Pinterest, Salesforce as well as 4000 other corporations worldwide use the same payment system. We at Pedaru do not save any of your credit card information on our servers and cannot access that information. Such information is only saved and encrypted on Stripe.com’s secure servers.
Should I use Pedaru bicycle sharing platform even if I own a bicycle?
Yes. Most people in Japan already have a bicycle but are restricted to using it only around their home area. However, there are many instances during your daily commute in which using a bicycle will allow you to save time and money.
Does Pedaru provide any insurance?
Yes, there is insurance coverage for third liability insurance as well as accident insurance caused by bad bicycle maintenance. However, any responsibility not covered by the insurance must be borne by the user.
What is the rate?
The price is 100 yen per 30 minute ride. This means if you ride for 30 minutes or less, you will only pay 100 yen. If you ride for 31 minutes to 60 minutes, the rate will be 200 yen.
Where do I park the bicycle?
Please park the bicycle at appropriate designated locations that are highlighted on the map in our application. Please do not park in paid parking lots that are not designated by Pedaru as an approved parking location.
