Bike-sharing company Mobike is commencing operations in Bangkok in partnership with Advanced Info Service, Thailand’s leading mobile network.

Mobike is placing hundreds of smart bikes on the Kasetsart University grounds to provide over 60,000 students the convenience of traveling short distances. The brand commented that Kasetsart University’s campus and community of students provides an ideal environment for Mobike to deploy its pilot program and collect feedback from users. Over time, the number of smart bikes in the program will increase as Mobike rolls out its service across Bangkok, in collaboration with local partners.

Ahead of the launch, Mobike signed an MOU with local partners, Kasetsart University and Advanced Info Service, to implement its smart bike-share service in Bangkok.

Head of international city operations of Mobike Mark Lin commented: “Mobike is committed to expanding our smart bike-share service in the Thai market, and Bangkok is the ideal launchpad. The bike-sharing sector is relatively new in Thailand and given the country’s vibrant economy, there is tremendous potential for growth.

“As a pioneer in the industry, Mobike has both the industry experience and smart technology expertise, including GPS and IoT technology, to manage the complexity of entering new markets and ensure a smooth roll-out of services. Mobike’s operations are focused on being responsible, sustainable, and innovative as a partner with the community where we operate.”

Mobike is deploying its classic model on Kasetsart University’s campus. The bike has a chainless shaft transmission, non-puncture airless tires, a lightweight aluminum anti-rust frame, enhanced and durable disk-brakes, and an auto-inspired five-spoke wheel.
