One of China’s largest services apps now allows users to hail rides from multiple ride-hailing companies at the same time.

The service, which is currently available only for Dazhong Dianping users in Shanghai and Nanjing, uses a fleet of cars from premium ride-hailing companies like Shouqi and Shenzhou, as well as cars directly engaged by app owner Meituan Dianping, the company said Tuesday. But ride-hailing leader Didi is conspicuously absent from Meituan’s list.

Meituan now joins map providers Gaode and Baidu Map in allowing users to make ride-hailing orders from multiple companies simultaneously.

Meituan said it would probably not offer “big” subsidies to riders, prompting industry watchers to infer that some level of subsidies would still be offered to help the company expand market share.
