Bike rental, ride-hailing, and logistics services in China’s Guangdong province were suspended as Typhoon Mangkhut made landfall over the weekend, according to local media.

Chinese mobility services including those offered by ride-hailing giant Didi and Meituan-owned bike rental firm Mobike were temporarily stopped.
