CAR-HAILING APPS have long been popular, but the latest trend is for apps that allow users to book a seat on a shuttle bus. Beijing News comments:
According to reports, users of the apps for shuttle buses can even book personalized routes.
That overcomes a major downside of traditional buses. Traditionally, buses only run on set routes following fixed schedules, and those who use them are not guaranteed a seat. Now, with the new apps, travelers can ensure they get a seat and that it goes to where they want.
