City Transport to Look into Using Car Hailing AppsIn the city’s latest effort in regulating the taxi service market, the Shenzhen transport commission seeks public opinion on the development of the regulations of a car hailing app. A research institute operated by the transport commission is now working on the rules that will govern the development of the car hailing apps, and based on public suggestions the commission makes the rules on the apps and its action plan for the next five years.

The commission hopes that the new rules levels the playing field between traditional taxis that often charges higher fares and the new car hailing apps. the new app will also have a detailed provision with regards on the qualification of vehicles, pricing, drivers, service quality, safety issues and operational rights.
