Two months after launching rideshare program People’s Uber in Beijing, Uber has announced it is expanding the service to cities including Hangzhou, Chengdu, Wuhan, Shanghai, Shenzhen and Guangzhou. That means People’s Uber will be available in every city in which Uber operates on the Chinese mainland.

As a non-profit platform, People’s Uber matches car owners with fellow city residents, while the riders cover the car owners’ journey cost. After travelling, riders and car owners rate each other, as with an eBay or Taobao transaction. For safety and transparency, every trip’s details are logged through Uber’s app.
