We are trying to meet students demand gradually”. The secretary to student transportation affairs DUCSU Shams E Noman said, "One of the most wanted demands of general students was to introduce JoBike service in the campus. We introduced this service after getting positive response from the students". "The fare for riding those bicycles will be kept at a reduced rate compared to other university campuses and residential areas where JoBike will be operational", he added.

JoBike Founder Mehedi Reza, a former product operations manager at Alibaba Group thanked all the concerned people and said, "JoBike is not mine rather it is belongs to you and you should take care of it". The Dhaka University Central Student’s Union (DUCSU) along with JJoBike  launched this service with 100 bikes and the numbers of bikes will be increased within two months as per students demand.
