Late-night commuters miss Didi service

China Daily | Updated: 2018-09-12 07:47

AFTER TWO FEMALE PASSENGERS were killed in the space of three months by drivers of cars registered with Didi, the largest car hailing company suspended most of its services from 11 pm to 5 am last week to prevent such tragedies and plug its security loopholes. Guangming Daily comments:

The two murders have mounted pressure on Didi to stop using its monopoly in the car hailing sector to make more and more profits while ignoring passengers' safety. The two cases have also prompted the authorities to initiate an investigation into the entire car-hailing service sector, starting with Didi.

Yet an increasing number of late-night commuters have been complaining about the inconvenience they face after Didi stopped its car hailing services between 11 pm and 5 am. And some private car drivers, who make up for the lack of traditional taxis at night, charge exorbitant rates for even a short trip.
