Didi Chuxing made headlines when it received a $1 billion investment from Apple.
The $1 billion from the tech giant marked the largest single investment Didi Chuxing had ever received, the company wrote in a statement. As Didi continues its massive battle with Uber for market share in China, it’s worth taking a closer look at how the service works.
Scroll down to see the many services Didi offers:
You can also find and purchase tickets for a Didi bus. Didi has created 33 routes in Beijing and 10 in Shenzen with plans to expand.
Here you see the process for finding a Didi bus based on your start and end location. A bus ride costs between $1.10 and $2.10 and are sourced from licensed travel agencies and leasing companies.
There's also a service called Hitch that lets you carpool with other riders similar to UberPOOL. Here's what the app looks like when searching for a Hitch driver.
You can even test drive a car through the Didi app. As you can see from the screenshot, if you wanted to test a Volkswagen you simply press that specific icon.
A Volkswagen representative will then drive the car to your desired location where you can take it for a spin.
You can also use the app to book a ride in advance by entering the time, date, and pick-up location.
Didi can be accessed in AliPay, a payment service run by Alibaba that lets you send money to other app users similarly to Venmo.
