In Post-Killings Crackdown, Ride-Hailing Firms Face Greater Local Scrutiny
The central government has said it will heighten scrutiny of the ride-hailing industry through year-end, as authorities crack down on the sector in the wake of the killings of two passengers who were customers of industry leader Didi Chuxing.
Provincial-level transportation bureaus and police departments will be charged with launching a comprehensive review of ride-hailing companies in their respective jurisdictions, with a special focus on the companies’ safety measures, according to a Ministry of Transport statement (link in Chinese) on Monday.
