Consumers Are Going Crazy for Bike-Share Programs
The sheer number of rides speaks volumes for the popularity of bike-sharing with consumers. Today, more than 40 companies offer dockless bike share services in China. The top two alone, Mobike and ofo, handle more than 50 million rides every day [^1]. As of April 2018, ofo claims to operate in 21 countries and over 250 cities while Mobike operates in over 190 cities [^2] across China, Singapore, Italy, Japan, the U.K., and U.S. Bird and Lime, two California-based e-bike companies, are both in 100 cities.
