Bike-Sharing Giant Mobike Adds Online Ride-Hailing Function to Its Mobile App

(Yicai Global) Oct. 10 -- Chinese bike-sharing operator Beijing Mobike Technology Co. has updated its Mobike App by introducing a car-hailing service in some cities. The move is another attempt by the firm to combine bicycle-sharing and tailored taxi services, online media outlet 36Kr reported today.

The bicycle plus ride-hailing service aims to meet the demand of last-mile commuters while also satisfying medium- and long-distance travelers.

Car-hailing services have played a key role in the development of China's shared economy. Users of taxi-hailing or tailored taxi services totaled 393 million as of December 2016, up from nearly 120 million as of the end of the first half of the same year.
