A Chinese online car-hailing platform called Shouqi Limousine and Chauffeur apologized for safety issues after a woman in Hangzhou claimed she injured herself by jumping out of a moving car while attempting to escape a dangerous situation.
Two Chinese online life service giants have stepped into the car-hailing business. Ctrip, a leading provider of travel services, launched car rental business together with Didi, Shouqi Group and AA Car Rent. At the same time, Meituan.com, a Chinese group buying website, launched a taxi service in seven cities.
On October 20, Dida, a carpooling and shared travel company, announced it expanded the business scope and officially launched the taxi services. In addition to existing carpooling service, users can hail taxis in the latest version of the Dida App. In addition, the Dida is also engaged in the business contact with Mobike.
