Hailo London

Google integrates Hailo into Maps

London’s favourite Taxi App, Hailo, now an option for users to book via the world’s most popular maps service on mobile.

 
London, United Kingdom, 15 March 2016: Hailo, the taxi app, has today announced that it is now a Google Global Ride Service Partner, meaning users of Google Maps will now be able to book a Hailo Taxi in the UK as part of Google Maps’ new Ride Services Tab.

The new addition, which goes live today on Android with iOS to follow next week, makes it easy for travellers searching on Google Maps to make a decision about the quickest and most convenient way to get to their destination.  The new ride services tab will be positioned alongside the existing ‘walking’, ‘car’, ‘bike’ and ‘transit’ options in the user interface.

Partnering with the Hailo Taxi App, users will be able to see the estimated availability, price, and travel time to the destination they have requested directions for in Google Maps. Users can then book a Hailo taxi and be taken to their desired destination by one of London’s iconic black cabs – a service recognised and trusted throughout the world for its reliability, speed, accessibility, The Knowledge and, of course, the drivers themselves who are renowned for their witty banter!

Andrew Pinnington, CEO of Hailo said, “Google Maps helps millions of people navigate their way around the world’s cities. Now with the addition of Hailo to the ride services tab, in both the UK and Spain, there are even more ways to book one of the iconic black cabs of London to get customers reliably, safely and quickly to their destination.  Becoming a Google Global Ride Service Partner recognises the key role licensed taxis perform as part of a city’s transport infrastructure.”
