Q: Everyone in GZ is using Taxis again?

I was out and about this weekend and the Chinese in our group said DD is no good now. They said official taxis are cheaper. I must have missed that news on the english websites. Anyone got a link why?

There was a stink about a couple of ladies raped by drivers, one case the son of the didi driver did the deed and some outcry about not checking backgrounds very well, but I am not sure if that was guangzhou. Didi had to suspend service for a government review for 30 days but maybe longer in whatever city it happened.

ScotsAlan:

Yeah. I rrmember the rape thing. Thats not it tho. It seems that since the late night suspension of dd that most Chinese I know have stopped using it. Say taxis are cheaper. I have no idea why.

Because didi isn't cheaper than a taxi anymore. 

ScotsAlan:

Yup. I just wondered if there was a story behind it. Orders from Guv to increase prices for example. Strange the prices went up and none of the foreigner websites mentioned it.

I was still using the DiDi app before I left China —- to book taxis! The private cars are generally more expensive
