This paper discusses a large-scale dockless bike-sharing system (DBSS) with unusable bikes, which can be removed, repaired, redistributed and reused under two batch policies: One for removing the unusable bikes from each parking region to a maintenance shop, and the other for redistributing the repaired bikes from the maintenance shop to some suitable parking regions. For such a bike-sharing system, this paper proposes and develops a new computational method by applying the RG-factorizations of
