Vietnamese ride-hailing company launches service in Laos

(VOVWORLD) - Beginning Thursday, residents and tourists in Vientiane, the capital of Laos, can book an electric taxi operated by Green & Smart Mobility (GSM), a Vietnamese ride-hailing company, using the Xanh SM Laos application available on the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store, or by hailing one of their taxis on the street.

Laos is the first foreign market in GSM’s "Go Green Global" strategy to become a global electric vehicle (EV) service provider and popularize the "green mobility" trend to the world.

The launch of the Xanh SM taxi service not only gives Laos a new transportation option, but makes a positive contribution to protecting the environment and helping the Lao Government fulfill its goal of making 30% of vehicles electric by 2030.
