Updates on two Chinese car-hailing giants – Didi Chuxing and Meituan Dache
Posted On April 29, 2019
Burdened by a huge operational loss and constrained by the heavy public oversight, mostly prompted by two murder cases by Didi drivers last year, Meituan has suspended its expansion on transportation units. Instead of furthering its car-hailing services in other cities, it recently launched an aggregator function which enables users to choose from various service providers either from Meituan Dache’s own fleet of drivers or those of its partners. Such a partnership, according to Chinese media, will help improve the user experience.
