Didi Chuxing, one of the world’s leading mobile transportation and convenience platforms, announced that its global daily trips reached a record high of more than 50million on 25 August, the Chinese Valentine’s Day.
The one day record number included trips from DiDi’s ride-hailing, taxi-hailing, Hitch (P2P commuter ridesharing), bikesharing and designated driving services.
In April this year, DiDi announced its “0188” 3-year strategy. Namely, by 2022:
To maintain its ongoing initiative to strive for a future without major safety and security incidents
To complete 100 million daily trips globally
To achieve an 8% penetration rate in China’s total mobility market; and
To serve 800 million monthly active users globally.
DiDi has also taken active measures to support economic recovery across its home and overseas markets. As of June, its China business had recovered to pre-COVID levels in 2019. DiDi now operates mobility, food and delivery services in Australia, Japan, Russia, Brazil, Mexico, Costa Rica, Chile, Colombia and Panama. It delivered a yearly total of over 1 billion trips in its international markets outside China in 2019.
