The ride-hailing industry is a new business form that combines traditional taxi services with internet technology and a sharing economy.


II. Skimming
What is the text mainly about?
It introduces a trial re-launch of Didi Chuxing's carpool (拼车) service, and a controversial curfew (宵禁) for women. 

II. Scanning
Activity 1 Read and judge
•1. Didi Chuxing announced a trial re-launch of its carpool service, Didi Hitch, nationwide with a range of new safety features.
•2. After the public backlash, Didi Chuxing changed its decision. Both men and women will be able to use Didi Hitch till 11 pm.
•3.Despite all the safety features, riders should check their drivers’ number plates, ensure they are being taken on the correct route, and inform friends of travel plans.
•4. With new safety features, Didi Chuxing will win back users’ trust.

Activity 2

Activity 3
1. Why did Didi Chuxing suspended its ride-hailing service? 
•Because of the murders of two separate female passengers last May and August, respectively.

2. Which one of the new measures proved controversial? Why?
•It imposed an 8 pm curfew on women, but allowed men to use the service until 11 pm.
•Many users complained on social media that the policy was sexist.

IV. Language focus

prefer sth
prefer doing/to do
prefer A to B; prefer doing A to doing B
prefer to do A rather than do B

•Despite all the safety features, riders should check their drivers’ number plates, ensure they are being taken on the correct route, and inform friends of travel plans.

I got off the bus, paid the fair and dashed to the station.

V. Further exploring  
Further thinking:
•With ride-hailing businesses slowly popping up around the world, how could riders remain safe  while enjoying the services?

•Hitch accounts for a "small portion of Didi's service." Didi Express, its main service, accounts for 80% of the company's business in terms of the number of rides.
•Didi is best known for successfully driving Uber out of China in 2016. Since then, investors have pumped billions more into the company. 
•The company has been expanding internationally, buying a Brazilian Uber rival in January 2018 and launching its own service in Mexico in April, 2018.

•1. Review key words and expressions.
•2. Try to make a summary of the news story.
