New Ride-Hailing Regulations

Strict new car-hailing regulations are being introduced in China. As of now, platforms and drivers without the proper licenses cannot give rides in Beijing. All drivers must have a local residence permit, vehicles must be registered locally, and there are tighter restrictions on drivers’ household registration, car plate, vehicle model, age and insurance. China’s ride-hailing industry is increasingly competitive and saturated with rivals. Companies that hope to remain profitable must find better and more unique ways to communicate value to customers.
