China will perform extensively inspections at all recruiting service companies, the Ministry of Transport said on Friday after a driver from the dominant company Didi Chuxing killed a 20-year-old passenger this month.
The inspections, from September 5, will cover all ride services service platform nationwide, the Ministry said in a statement.
Didi said that it welcomed the move and fully cooperated to implement measures for improvement.
"We accept the supervision and will do our best to improve our services to ensure the safety of the public," Didi said in a statement on her official account at China& # 39; S Twitter-like Weibo website.
The murder of the passenger driving a Didi vehicle took place in the eastern city of Wenzhou and was the second such incident with Didi since May.
The most recent case led to outrage and raised security concerns in the fast-growing rides sector China, which prompts the company to say that it would suspend the Hitch service indefinitely until it comes with a security mechanism that is acceptable to its users.
