The local government-backed bike-rental service in the capital of Hubei province has announced it will shut down in the face of pressure from the shared bikes that have flooded into cities across China.

Wuhan Huantou, the operator of Wuhan’s bike-rental service, announced in a statement that its bicycle business will cease operation on Sunday. This will mean its 40,000 public bikes will be removed from the city’s streets.
