The Chinese company Mobike was the first in the world to offer a bike-sharing service for urban short trips. A bicycle can be borrowed at any time, left in any acceptable parking space – it is not tied to a specific station. The development is successfully used by administrations of Zaragoza, London, Hanover, and other public organizations. Today, the company operates in 23 European cities. For example, in Zaragoza (Spain), thanks to Mobike, the city will work on traffic safety measures and bicycle parking services in cooperation with the city council. Bikesharing should reduce traffic congestion and increase urban mobility, making bicycles as convenient and popular as cars.
