Bicycles are an age-old mode of transportation, but bicycle-sharing is a modern day trend that has gained popularity worldwide. In fact, it is so popular in China that in recent years more than 30 bike-sharing start-ups have popped up across the country. And China’s approach to bike-sharing has a twist: smart bikes!
Today, more than 100 million people in China have used bike-sharing apps and two of the most popular companies, Mobike and Ofo, operate in over 100 mainland cities combined. Mobike made its North American debut when it hit the streets of Washington, D.C. this week. Get ready to be “in the know” about the smart bike invasion in China!
