It launched in Phuket just two weeks ago and now Ofo, the world’ s first and largest dockless bike, is expanding, offering more than 50 bike service locations covering leading educational campuses and major tourist attractions.



With more than 1,000 daily transactions in its second week of operation, Noppol Toochinda, General Manager for Thailand, says the results have been much better than expected with both Phuket residents and tourists eager to ride the bikes and help reduce pollution levels.

“I think we started at the right place and at the right time. Since launching on September 20, our users have increased more than 30 times. The special campaign “ofo Trial, No Deposit” which gives everyone free service for one month starting from October 1, is expected to stimulate numbers even more,” Noppol added.

Service locations in Phuket include Phuket Merlin Hotel, Pearl Hotel Phuket, Bang Neow Shrine, Phuket Rajabhat University, Suan Luang Rama 9 and Talang Road. Find out more by emailing bdthailand@ofobike.com.
