BEIJING – Chinese ride-sharing service Didi Chuxing said on Monday it was expanding its operations to Mexico, starting in the central city of Toluca.
The hiring of drivers started earlier this month in Toluca and service will expand to other Mexican cities this year, Didi Chuxing said in a statement.
Didi Chuxing already operates in other Latin American cities, Japan, Taiwan and Hong Kong, logging 30 million trips a day for nearly 450 million customers.
In China, Didi Chuxing formed an alliance with its former rival, US-based Uber, with the companies combining their services in response to demands from Chinese officials.
In the Chinese market, Didi Chuxing’s services include the hiring of conventional taxis, thus avoiding widespread protests by Chinese cab drivers as the ride-sharing business grows.
