Bike-sharing is a tech and transportation trend that is exploding around the world. With a fleet of over 10 million bikes worldwide, Ofo is positioning itself to be a leader in the space. Chris Taylor, Head of Ofo North America, joined us to share the companies strategy to take on the heavy competition.
Ofo is one of two $1 billion bike-sharing companies from China. Now, ride-hailing giant Didi Chuxing plans to roll out its own platform. Taylor discussed how Ofo will respond to the move that puts its marketshare at risk.
