Shanghai will be -by the end of 2016- the largest public bike share program.

The free floating Chinese public use bike program, has expanded into Shenzhen, China.

According to the Shanghai Daily, this bike will first be deployed in the Baoshan District, just north of Shanghai. It will cost around 7¢US per 30 minutes to use this new bike.
