After months of speculation, Meituan-Dianping, one of China’s largest online services platforms, has rolled out its car-hailing business.

Starting Wednesday, users in Shanghai can hail rides through Meituan’s mobile app, which already offers a range of services such as food delivery, hotel bookings and movie tickets.

The rollout comes after months of media speculation about where the company would launch the service, as well as a potential price war with car-hailing leader Didi Chuxing Technology Co. Ltd., which itself recently entered the food takeout space.
