Taxify expands to South Africa

The Estonian start-up Taxify, developer of a smartphone-based application for taxi booking, is set to expand to the South African cities Johannesburg and Cape Town at the end of this month.

Cooperation with licensed taxi operators only gives the company an edge over competitors, CEO of Taxify South Africa Trevor Joseph said in a press release. “Our passengers are always assured that they are in the hands of properly-licensed drivers, with the necessary taxi permit and public carrier insurance,” he said.

In just over two months of preparatory work on the South African market, Taxify has over 150 vehicles registered on the system. The company hopes to exceed 500 vehicles by the end of March.

Founded in Estonia in 2013, Taxify is engaged in developing a smartphone app and dispatcher software for taxi booking. The company currently operates in Estonia, Finland, Latvia, Lithuania, Belarus, Britain, Georgia, the Netherlands, Poland, Spain, and the United States.
