Mobike Europe branch is reportedly planning on branching out into e-bike and scooter rentals in the region.
Mobike has started to charge Shanghai users an extra RMB 20 (around $3) if they park a bike outside the company’s ‘area of operation.’
Hellobike’s new prices are more expensive than taking the bus in Beijing, which may be a blow to its business model.
Other bike-rental companies are considering raising prices, as warmer weather brings a likely rebound in trip numbers.
Meituan-owned Mobike also denied that layoffs in Asia are part of a larger exit strategy.
Chinese bike-rental firms, Mobike and Hello Transtech, expressed their willingness to enter the bidding.
Mobike was added to WeChat Pay’s interface as a third-party service.
The Chinese bike-rental firm will also become a distinct business group within the lifestyle services company.
Didi hopes new strategies will help it complete a U-turn that will get it out of the dead-end in which it finds itself.
The rules went into effect on Wednesday on Didi’s bike-rental platforms Qingju and Bluegogo.
