Unlike our country’s Land Public Transport Commission (SPAD) which has deemed mobile-app based ride-sharing services as illegal, the Ministry of Transport in China has published draft rules to regulate such services there in a bid to maintain order and strengthen supervision, according to a report on Reuters.

According to the report, the mobile-app based ride-sharing services in China are dominated by both Uber and Didi Kuaidi, battling it out for market share.

It goes on to say that the draft rules will require such companies to obtain a license and guarantee a transparent pricing mechanism with its drivers to meet certain qualifications.

Both Uber and Didi Kuaidi are said to be seeking licenses to operate in other cities in China.
