1,000 ofo bikes on offer in Phuket

CHINESE bike-sharing company ofo yesterday launched a service in the Thai tourist resort island of Phuket in collaboration with a local company.

Noppol Toochinda, general manager for ofo Thailand operation, said more than 1,000 bikes would be available at key locations, including hotels, universities and tourist attractions.

This Sunday is Phuket Car Free Day, Noppol said. “We would like to invite Phuket residents and tourists to be part of this activity by stop using cars and try ofo bicycle service.”

Ofo currently operates in more than 170 cities across nine countries, with more than 10 million bicycles available, generating more than 25 million daily transactions.

It launched its business in Thailand last month with 1,000 bikes at Thammasat University’s Rangsit Campus.

Ofo said it considers the country as a strategic area in expanding its service in Southeast Asia due to its population of over 70 million, with more than 700,000 students and more than 9 million Chinese tourists visiting the kingdom each year.
