WUHAN, April 4 (Xinhua) -- Central China's Wuhan has cooperated with a bike-sharing company to build a bike lane in the city to alleviate traffic jams caused by subway construction.
According to the city's traffic control bureau, it has chosen bicycle-sharing giant Mobike to help build a lane for the bikes and designated several parking points along the lane in the Nanhu area.
The bureau said usage of shared bikes has increased significantly, alleviating congestion in the area. The company and city will work together to expand the lanes to other areas.
In less than a year, the leading Shanghai-based bicycle-sharing platform has expanded its service to 36 Chinese cities, as well as Singapore, with over one million bicycles.
