Around 2,000 bikes are expected to be available across Southport, Surfers Paradise, Broadbeach and Varsity Lakes by January 2018. Newly designed Mobikes for the Australian market will include internal three-speed gears, a larger frame and 26-inch wheels to suit local riders, as well as front and rear lights for safety.
Gold Coast is the host city for the 2018 Commonwealth Games, and Mobike will be available to visitors and athletes, providing a convenient and sustainable method of transport. Chris Martin, Vice-President of International for Mobike, said: “Australia represents an amazing opportunity for Mobike, and Gold Coast is an ideal location for us to start our smart bikeshare service. We are very pleased to be the exclusive partner for the city and delivering our mission to improve city residents’ quality of life by providing an affordable means of shared transportation while reducing congestion and air pollution. 

 By simply downloading the Mobike app, finding a nearby Mobike and scanning its QR code, Gold Coasters will be able to pick up and ride bikes around the city and to the beach.
