Ofo plans to enter five cities in the Czech Republic, Italy, Russia and the Netherlands by early 2018, with Prague and Milan the first cities to launch the service. A 30-minute ride will cost 0.5 euro in these two cities. The three other cities will be Moscow, Rotterdam and Groningen.
The company also expanded its services to the Thai tourist resort island of Phuket on Friday, after it entered Thailand in July.
So far, ofo has announced services in a total of 13 countries around the world.
