The rate increase is part of parent company Meituan’s broader profitability push.
Hellobike’s new prices are more expensive than taking the bus in Beijing, which may be a blow to its business model.
Mobike was added to WeChat Pay’s interface as a third-party service.
Meituan’s Q1 results show that its more disciplined expansion strategy is paying off.
So far, more than 1,000 user accounts have been frozen for periods of time ranging from five to 90 days.
The rules went into effect on Wednesday on Didi’s bike-rental platforms Qingju and Bluegogo.
Li Shubin will become head of the Meituan app division, a key position for driving growth for the parent company.
Didi’s struggles in the bike-rental market led to a launch of its own brand, Qingju.
The company has been casting its eye to enterprise and emerging smart connected devices.
