China’s dockless bike rental market is fairly young given that major players in the market like Mobike and ofo weren’t born until very recently.

The sector has witnessed breakneck development over the past two years in China, but now the fast-evolving industry is reaching saturation at a speed faster than we expected, at least in first-tier and second-tier cities.

After talks with execs from 15 major bike rental companies in the city, Beijing transportation authorities announced today that no more new bikes should be placed in the city (in Chinese).

This makes Beijing the 12th city on the lengthening list of cities to halt new bike placement.

Given that the capital city has always played a special role in leading governmental regulations, this announcement may trigger more cities to follow the suit.

Official data shows that the 15 bike rental startups that are operating in Beijing run a combined 2.35 million bikes in the capital.
