Didi launches rural ride-sharing in northwest Yunnan

BY ERIC WANG

Chinese ride-hailing giant Didi Chuxing has launched its rural ride-sharing service in northwest Yunnan’s Lanping County on February 5.

It is the first time that Yunnan villagers can access car-pool trips at home. Traditional shuttle buses are time-consuming, and for a ride we often wait for quite a while, said another villager, adding the Didi car-pool trips are much easier.

Didi’s rural ride-sharing, which aims to provide smart transportation service for all villagers in Lanping by 2020, is supported by local authorities.We will further optimize our products, and the car-pool service will gradually cover all the 109 towns, townships and villages in Lanping, said Xu Bin, head of the Didi Yunnan branch.
