Passengers can use 'Metro daduhui' to scan shared bikes from Mobike and Ofo
Passengers taking Metro in the city can now use their “Metro daduhui” app to unlock shared bikes from Mobike and Ofo.
They can use their bike sharing accounts in Metro daduhui to scan bikes or register a new one without opening the Mobike or Ofo app.
More than 2 million people have installed the app by Tuesday. Many of them use shared bikes to finish their trips from the Metro station to final destinations.
Ofo’s survey suggested passengers in 275 Metro stations used shared bikes to finish their “one last kilometer” journey. “People can now finish their trips all in one app,” said an employee from Ofo.
Mobike's data showed that 80 percent of the users in Shanghai rode an average of 1.8 kilometers in 2017, which was the shortest in China.
Wang Xiaofeng, CEO of Mobike, said shared bikes are becoming another brick to complete the whole picture of Shanghai’s public transport infrastructure.
The two bike sharing firms said that discounts will be given soon to encourage more people to scan bikes via Metro daduhui.
