Adelaide's Yellow Bike Epidemic Short-Lived

Spotted a yellow bike or two ditched anywhere across Adelaide lately?

Bike-sharing company Ofo has decided to shut down its Aussie operations over the next two months meaning they'll be off our streets by the end of August.

The Chinese-founded business says they want to focus on priority markets overseas.

Ofo Australia was one of two bike-sharing companies that launched in Adelaide last October, along with oBike.

Despite a number of residents reporting to find the bikes abandoned on busy streets, in trees and in lakes, Ofo says they only had one bike stolen and two others damaged beyond repair.

Their Adelaide fleet was 100 bikes.

oBike will continue to run in SA.
