The bike-sharing revolution in China has already transformed the look and feel of the cities across the country. With billions of rides taken on millions of bikes with just a click on a mobile app, the market has seen enormous growth. The bike-sharing startups in China are getting ready for overseas expansion after the success in major cities in the home country. Hello Trans Tech, formerly known as Hellobike is one such bike-sharing giant in the country.
The company changed its name last year on its second anniversary since it makes a foray into a variety of vehicle sharing business besides bike-sharing. This will include moped scooter-sharing and building a further alliance with the travel industry. According to reports, the company has recently closed a funding round of around $580 million (RMB 4 billion). The funding was led by Alibaba affiliate Ant Financial and Primavera Capital Group. Hello Trans Tech has been backed by Alibaba since 2017 and has now become one of the top leaders in China’s bike-sharing market.
The company headquartered in Shanghai is led by Han Mei, COO, and boasts of nearly 24 million orders per day with its services extended to over 300 cities in China. Hello Trans Tech is now focusing on expanding in second and third-tier cities and plans to push car-sharing and ride-hailing services.
