Biking Sharing Scheme in Chengdu continues to grow

Since the new year, 2017 has seen the growth of the city’s bike sharing schemes. Three main companies emerged: Mobike, Ofo, and Blue Gogo. Mobike and Ofo are China-wide and have emerged as the industry leaders. Their business model is based on growing users, collecting location data and holding user deposits (from 70RMB to 300RMB) to invest into other projects. With such stiff competition, of course there is foul play with some bikes becoming vandalised or stolen, but both Mobike and Ofo are frequently replenishing bike stocks and improving models.
