The Ministry of Transport (MOT) Wednesday said the “hitch” service of Didi Chuxing, China’s largest mobile ride-hailing platform, would remain offline until correcting safety hazards. The requirement came after an in-house joint inspection by 10 departments in September of eight major players in the ride-hailing industry, including Didi, for safety loopholes and problems concerning the safety of passengers. The inspectors found several safety risks in the hitch service, including the risks of leaking passenger private information and irregular operations of fund clearing, the MOT told a media briefing.
