In the small British city of Oxford, cycling is quite popular. Many cycle to work, university and school.
Recently, several Chinese bike-sharing companies were in touch with the Oxford city council on the possibility of rolling out their services. This comes after China’s largest bike-sharing operator Ofo launched a trail in Cambridge.
Bike-sharing schemes in Oxford are quite different from the business model in China, where people don’t have to worry about finding a docking station.
The Oxford City Council is very supportive of cycling as it helps to reduce traffic and pollution.
Oxford City Councilor Louise Upton said, “This is brilliant. The more people we can get on bike-sharing bikes in Oxford, the better.”
