Hailo and Citymapper join forces - more jobs for taxi drivers
We're really pleased to tell you that Hailo has partnered up with Citymapper to allow their users to instantly book and pay for a Hailo taxi.
Available across London and five other Citymapper cities, the app gives the option to book and pay for travel.
Citymapper also requires passengers to put in their destination, creating more Going Home jobs for Hailo taxi drivers. Citymapper has a huge number of customers in London which can only mean more jobs for taxis.
Here’s what Citymapper’s General Manager, Omid Ashtari had to say: “Adding Hailo as a next step is one of the top requests that we have heard from users. We’re particularly excited that Citymapper’s ‘knowledge’ can be combined with ‘the knowledge’ from black cab drivers in several cities to truly empower users.”
The screenshot below shows how customers can tap “Get a Hailo” to be taken straight through to the Hailo app and the booking screen. Note: the black cab estimate price shown doesn’t relate to the Hailo button and is generated by Citymapper and TfL. When a customer taps through to Hailo, the price of a taxi ride is determined by the meter.
