YouBike system returns to normal after system down for hours

Taipei, Feb. 27 (CNA) Operations of the public bike rental system YouBike returned to normal late Friday after several hours of stoppage that began at 10:30 a.m. due to heavy online traffic. The online service glitches were fixed, including the functions of online registration and adding/deletion of ticket services, according to an announcement on the YouBike website. The YouBike systems in Taipei, New Taipei, Taichung and Changhua were all affected by the malfunction, during which users were able to return already-rented bikes but could not check out bikes. YouBike spokesperson Liu Li-chu (???) attributed the problem to huge traffic volume on the Internet that began to overwhelm the YouBike system from about 10 a.m. It was the first large-scale breakdown of the system since it was formally launched in Taipei in November 2012.
