December 31, 2017, Beijing, a man riding an OFO under blue sky via the orderly arranged sharing bikes. It is like a fresh start of the New Year. As a response to climate change, more and more citizens choose Bike-sharing as a way of transportation. It effectively reduces the emission of PM2.5, the major source of Smog, and Carbon Dioxide. The booming of Bike-sharing in China last year offered the preconditions of trip mood change. This kind of Bike-sharing service is provided by private corporations like OFO showing in the picture. The service is now widely spread all over China and became the dominant force of public transportation. I believe Bike-sharing can be one of the solutions of combating climate change.
