For decades, driving has been the major way of communting and reaching places in vast majority parts of the world. The number of cars in the whole world has been constantly increasing, including China. As of 2018, car parc in China has quardrupled since 2007, which has posed huge burden on the road network country-wide, as well as environmental problems in various aspects. Some cities like Beijing introduced car plate policies to allow cars to be driven on a certain day depending on the last digit of the plate, which did not stop the car parc in China from increasing. Therefore, other measures were introduced to discourage car use, for example, in Beijing and Shanghai, one needs to win a complicated lottery process to earn a license plate before they can go on the road, which could cost more than the vehicle itself. Alongside with the difficulty of getting to drive on roads in China, the emerging trend of sharing economy also created new business opportunities and started changing the products provided by the private sector, in ways such as transporting people from A to B by ride-hailing or car-sharing. These mobility services offer people the choice of traveling to places affordably and comfortably on demand simply with a few clicks on mobile apps, without the burden of owning a vehicle themselves.
