Singapore’s station-less bike sharing operator, oBike, launches its Global Business Partnership Programme (GBPP), to partner local businesses for its on-ground operations and provisioning of oBike resources.
GBPP is a franchise business model, leveraging on the expertise and resources of local businesses to better manage oBike operations in specific geographic areas within a city. Through timely distribution, on-demand activation and upkeeping of the bikes, oBike aims to enhance its service to riders.
Since launch 12 months ago, the company has seen tremendous growth, with operations spanning over 60 cities across 17 countries. Throughout its expansion, oBike is introducing an alternative and more localised business model to manage and streamline its large scale operations. The approach of GBPP decentralise operations into hubs that can be managed more efficiently by the local partners.
Through GBPP, oBike strives to boost business and employment benefits in the local communities that it operates in, via a revenue-sharing model. oBike strongly believes that the best way is in operating within the cultural norms of each market and community.
oBike’s technology-driven bike sharing service provides users around the world with a solution for short to medium distance transportation. oBike believes that its station-less solution drives mobility and is in line with governments’ smart city ambitions, and promotes a greener and healthier mode of transport for urbanites across the globe.
oBike is welcoming partners from local businesses or budding entrepreneurs who believe in oBike’s vision.
