Chinese bike-sharing firm Hellobike has launched ride-sharing services in three cities in a direct challenge to sector giant Didi Chuxing.

Hellobike, known for its signature blue and white bikes, has added a new cab-hailing function to its mobile app for users in Shanghai, Nanjing and Chengdu, the Shanghai-based company announced on Friday.

The move comes one month after the company renamed itself Hello TransTech — or HelloChuxing in Chinese — as part of an expansion into other transportation services.
