Didi merges bike-sharing operations

Electric-powered and human-powered bike-sharing businesses now one unit

Founded in 2012, Didi Chuxing has grown into China's top provider of ride-sharing services.

BEIJING -- China's biggest ride-hailing service Didi Chuxing has merged its two bicycle-sharing businesses to help boost the efficiency and competitiveness of its app-based transportation services, Nikkei learned on Tuesday.

The move to integrate Didi's bike-sharing businesses, one involving human-powered transport and the other focused on electric-powered pedal-assist bikes, has resulted in the establishment of a new "two-wheel business department," said one source who was not authorized to speak on behalf of the company.
