How much will it cost to develop a bike sharing app like ofo?

Mass transportation globally has become one of the biggest bottlenecks in daily commutes for people. Be it in a busy New York, or a densely populated Beijing, or a sophisticated London, the public transport systems are unable to cater to the needs of every single commuter. This problem has given rise to ride sharing applications and on demand taxi booking apps like Uber and Lyft. That said, it is a counterintuitive solution – after all these cabs still run on the roads which are packed with traffic. Where do you look for the ideal solution? The answer may sound primitive but it works great – you need a bike sharing app like ofo.

ofo is a Chinese unicorn which has catapulted the idea of bike sharing. ofo is the global leader in providing dockless shared bikes via its bike sharing application.
