Didi Chuxing, China’s Uber-like ride-sharing service provider, has once again plunged itself into a gender-related crisis.
Didi Chuxing announced on November 6 a trial relaunch of Hitch , its P2P ride-sharing service in seven major Chinese cities, at the end of November 2019.
On October 25, Didi Chuxing submitted a safety upgrade report to China’s Ministry of Transport upon completing a year-long industry-wide safety revamp process.
According to Reuters, a recruitment notice released by Didi has shown that the company is preparing to launch services in Costa Rica in Central America.
Didi Chuxing released a summary of the travel data for the 2019 National Day holiday that commemorated the 70th anniversary of the People’s Republic of China.
It has been 325 days since Didi’s Hitch service was suspended. On July 18, DiDi held a press conference, focusing on issues concerning its Hitch business.
Meituan added 10 cities to its ride-hailing pilot project. The “aggregation mode” allows users to call a taxi on different platforms with one click. New cities include Qingdao, Wuxi, Taiyuan, Dongguan, Foshan, Fuzhou, Xiamen, Beijing, Dalian and Harbin.
After several tragedies of passenger rape and murder while using Didi, a Chinese ride-hailing company, people have once again raised concerns about safety.
The cold Beijing winter took a heavy toll on Didi as the Chinese ride-hailing giant announced today that it will lay off 15 percent, roughly 2,000 staff members, this year.
