DiDi, Australia’s new mobile transportation platform, launched in Gold Coast and Sunshine Coast on 23 September, 2019.

After entering the Australian market in June 2018, DiDi has launched its rideshare service, DiDi Express, in a range of cities across the country including Melbourne, Geelong, Newcastle and, as of July 2019, Brisbane. The company is thrilled to announce its two latest app releases in Gold Coast and Sunshine Coast, doubling its previous Queensland area of operation and offering its services to more riders in the region.

As a new player in the Queensland ridesharing market, DiDi is making noise in Gold Coast and Sunshine Coast by offering exciting incentives for both riders and drivers alike.

To encourage riders to try the low fare rideshare service, DiDi is giving all new users a welcome pack that includes vouchers of up to 50% off 3 rides (max saving $10 per ride)*.

In addition, DiDi will be also running DiDiDAYs in which every rider in Gold Coast and Sunshine Coast will automatically receive a free $15 ride.*

DiDiDAYs fall on:

  • Saturday, 28th September
  • Saturday, 5th October
  • Saturday, 12th October

Drivers in Gold Coast and Sunshine Coast will also benefit for DiDi’s added competition in the industry. As DiDi is committed to maximising its driver-partners’ incomes, the platform offers an industry-leading Services Fee of 5.5% (meaning that the driver takes home 94.5% of every fare)*.

DiDi Australia General Manager, Mr. Lyn Ma, said, “Over the past month, we have been warmly welcomed by driver and riders in Brisbane, which gives us the confidence to bring our service to Gold Coast and Sunshine Coast for the benefit of the region’s residents and tourists alike.”
