Uber just made it a lot easier for Chinese travelers to hail a ride

ChinaTech in Asia — Uber and Alibaba’s spin-off mobile payments service today announced the launch of a joint program to allow Chinese ride-hailers to use Alipay to pay for their trips anywhere in the world. The first inklings of this deal came in February, when the companies announced that mainland Chinese users would be able to use their Alipay accounts to pay for rides in Hong Kong, Macau, and Taiwan. Today’s news expands that scope to include all of the 400-plus cities where Uber operates around the world.
