China's largest non-docking bike sharing scheme, Ofo, is launching its first UK venture with a trial starting in Cambridge.
The bright yellow bikes can be used with an app which gives uses a code to unlock the back wheel.
When cyclists are finished with them, they simply park them up and leave them for the next cyclist.
The system has already been a success in other countries.
Ofo's figures on the use of its bikes can be seen below:
- More than 10 million daily rides
- 46 cities using the scheme
- 2.5 million bikes
- 30 million active users
- 400 million rides
Ito World, transport data experts whose data powers some of the largest and best-known journey planners in the world says bike-sharing could be a key part in any future fully-connected transport system.
