Earlier this year, we told you about its launch in South Africa in a move targeting an expansion into the continent. Now, Chinese ride-hailing firm DiDi Chuxing has spread its wings and launched its operations in Egypt. And the company has started its registration process for drivers in the city of Alexandria.
The launch of DiDi in Egypt marks another milestone for the company’s efforts in bringing safe and affordable transportation options to more and more people around the world. Its services include taxis, private car delivery, ride-sharing, buses, bikes and e-bikes, customized driving, automotive solutions, delivery, shipping and logistics, and financial services.
Despite the challenges of the pandemic, DiDi says it continues to focus on providing resources, safe and flexible entrepreneurship opportunities, and reliable mobility options to new regions and their people.
With its launch in Egypt, DiDi brings its wide range of safety features to benefit users and driving partners, including facial recognition for drivers, SOS buttons for riders and drivers linked to local police, 24/7 support via a dedicated safety hotline, preview information for riders and drivers, and safety training for drivers, among others.
To celebrate the launch, all captains signing up through express registration in Alexandria will enjoy a 0% service charge for 28 days, as well as a participation bonus of 150 EGP after completing the first 10 flights.
