Visiting Australia? Didi now there, too

Didi said it plans to offer a roaming service from next month so that Chinese visitors can enjoy ride-sharing services while traveling in Australia.

In its latest move toward overseas expansion, Chinese visitors to Australia will be able to access local sharing services via the car-hailing company’s original Chinese app.

Didi began operating in Australia in May through its wholly owned subsidiary Didi Mobility (Australia), offering its Didi Express service. The company said that this latest move will also bring extra income for local drivers and boost the regional tourism economy.

It has set up its Australia and New Zealand headquarters in Melbourne.

University researchers from around Australia are already taking part in its artificial intelligence research initiatives.

Didi’s own-branded private car-hailing services were launched in Mexico and Australia earlier this year.

Last month, Didi’s joint venture with Soft Bank also started offering taxi-hailing services in Japan to local residents and visitors from China.
