Pri­vate car own­ers barred from us­ing apps for ser­vices

China Daily (Canada) - - BUSINESS -

Trans­port au­thor­i­ties in Bei­jing is­sued new rules on Wed­nes­day that ban pri­vate car own­ers from us­ing car-book­ing apps to of­fer pickup ser­vices for pas­sen­gers. The reg­u­la­tion is­sued by the trans­porta­tion man­age­ment bureau of the Bei­jing Mu­nic­i­pal Com­mis­sion of Trans­port stip­u­lates that only li­censed com­pa­nies, own­ing the ve­hi­cles they use, can use the car-book­ing apps to of­fer chauf­feur ser­vices. The reg­u­la­tion is ex­pected to change the busi­ness model of com­pa­nies who use owner-driv­ers rather than us­ing their own fleet of cars or team up with car rental com­pa­nies.
