(Reuters) - U.S.-based ride-hailing company Lyft Inc and Chinese peer Didi Kuaidi Joint Co have linked their apps, allowing users of each app to hail rides from drivers on the other app while they are in the other country.

Lyft also said Didi had invested $100 million earlier this year as part of its Series E funding along with Carl Icahn, Alibaba Group Holding Ltd and Tencent Holdings Ltd.
