In late September, news leaked that Ofo workers had deserted en masse their Beijing office, which once hosted the likes of Sina and Baidu. The bike-rental company responded afterward that their rental term had expired, but that employees were still working as usual. Now, local media has confirmed that ofo’s Beijing operations have moved to a nearby location.

Yesterday, Beijing News reported that a fifth-floor sign for “ofo little yellow bikes”(“ofo小黄车”) was posted at the new spot, the Internet Finance building. According to a Caijing report earlier that day, employees began packing up to move last Friday. On a visit, two floors of the old office space appeared to be empty of workers. After Ofo’s rental contract expired, employees were reportedly moved to another two floors in the same building before being shifted to the new location.

According to Caijing, the current site of Ofo’s headquarters previously housed the company’s overseas operations and the Beijing branch.
