Hail A Cab With Your Smartphone
The new app Hailo helps customers connect with taxi drivers directly.
Smartphone owners in London can now hail a black cab with their mobile phones by using the app Hailo. The mobile app aims to help customers and cab drivers effortless find each other. Customers can request a cab with the free app. While cab drivers can register to use their own version of the app to view and accept requests. Each driver is verified beforehand to ensure that they're licensed.
After each ride, the customer can pay with cash or card. The driver enters the meter fee into the app and Hailo takes a 10% cut with no hidden fees added.
