Didi launches roaming taxi-hailing

DIDI Chuxing, the world’s leading mobile transport platform, yesterday announced it is officially upgrading its Hong Kong product from Kuaidi Taxi to Didi Hong Kong, after three years of serving Hong Kong citizens under the Kuaidi Taxi brand.

The beta launch of the new Didi Hong Kong app marks the official arrival of the Didi brand in the territory, and a renewed commitment to redefining transportation for the people of Hong Kong using the power of technology.

Nearly 20,000 of Hong Kong’s taxi drivers — more than 50 percent — work with Didi to serve over 600,000 Hong Kong citizens and visitors on its ride-hailing app.

The new Didi taxi service introduces Didi’s intelligent ride-matching algorithms to ensure smoother user experience and more accurate route planning, which translate into a reduction of vehicle idle time and higher income for drivers. The new app also features a data-based rating system to improve overall service quality.

Together with the rebranding, Didi has also started the beta launch of a roaming taxi-hailing service across the Chinese mainland, Hong Kong and Taiwan. Earlier in 2018, Didi taxi and car-pooling services kick-started in Taiwan through an authorized franchise operator. The cross-border Shenzhen-Hong Kong Didi Premier Service is also in trial operations.

The rising volume of cross-border travel is a major driver for economic and cultural development in China. Tourism authorities estimate that in 2017, over 170 million trips took place from Hong Kong and Taiwan to the Chinese mainland, while travelers from the Chinese mainland and Taiwan made 46 million trips to Hong Kong. As the product evolves, travelers will be able to enjoy diversified on-demand mobility services with a single Didi app across the three regions. Now starting with cash payment for cross-border taxi-hailing, Didi will roll out cross-border mobile payment options in the near future.
