Taipei, July 22 (CNA) As Typhoon Matmo continued to approach Taiwan Tuesday, the Taipei city government announced the closure of schools and offices the following day and said YouBike, its bike rental system, would be suspended at midnight out of safety considerations.

Taipei introduced the public bike rental system in 2009 to provide commuters with an alternative to motor vehicles.
