European Taxi Hire Service Expands To China
Germany-based mobile taxi hailing firm Blacklane says it has opened services in Hong Kong and Shenzhen.
Blacklane says it does not possess its own vehicles but rather partners with existing providers to allow customers to enjoy comfortable journeys at inexpensive, fixed prices. But Blacklane has not divulged its joint venture partners in mainland China or Hong Kong for these new services.
Blacklane ostensibly competes with companies like Uber, which also provides mobile app hailing of car services in North America and Asia.
Blacklane says it is now available in 13 countries: Austria, Belgium, China, Colombia, France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Spain, Switzerland, Turkey, the U.K., and the U.S.
