Mobike, the world’s first smart bike sharing company, has extended its scheme to South London by setting up operations in Southwark.

The borough will see an initial 200 bikes being deployed across Rotherhithe and Camberwell, with that number growing based on demand.

The move to Southwark means that Mobike users can now ride freely to and from neighbouring areas such as Islington and the City.

Steve Pyer, UK general manager for Mobike, said: "The Mayor’s Transport Strategy has set the very ambitious objective of increasing the number of cycle journeys made in London by 400% by 2026.

"Bikesharing has a key role to play in this – and if we are to make a real difference in Londoners’ daily commute, being in Southwark is an important step.

"As one of the biggest boroughs, and a major connection to the Square Mile, Southwark is going to allow us to significantly expand our users’ journeys, giving them access to South, North and Central London – with more to follow soon! We’re excited to see how this borderless bike sharing opportunity is going to encourage cycling in London."
