Bike Sharing

Since 2016, sharing bicycles has attracted more and more attention. Sharing bicycles is a new form of shared economy, providing bicycles for sharing at campus, subway stations, bus stops, residential areas, commercial areas, public service areas, etc. Mobike and ofo are major providers of the service.

The bicycles are locked by the user after riding, and then unlocked by the next rider by using a mobile app and scanning a QR code on the frame. The current single-use cost of a shared bicycle is typically between RMB0.5 and RMB1 per hour.
