Say Hailo to mytaxi!
mytaxi launches in London today and we want you to be a part of the action.
Following the merger between Hailo and mytaxi late last year, creating Europe’s largest taxi app, we’re delighted to say that today is the day that we launch mytaxi here in London.
In the next eight weeks, Hailo will rebrand to mytaxi in the UK, Ireland and Spain. We’re sad to be waving goodbye to our dear friend, Hailo, a stalwart and pioneer of the London taxi trade, but behind the new mytaxi brand, however, is the same team as always, a team that shares your passion, belief and dedication for the black cab trade...
As you are probably aware, in August last year, we announced that we are joining forces with mytaxi to create Europe’s largest taxi app. That obviously doesn’t happen overnight and we’ve been busy ever since building a great new app. We’re now nearly ready to launch and will be in touch in the coming days, but for now we wanted to update you on what’s happening and answer a few burning questions!
- New driver app. In a week or so, we will prompt all drivers to download the mytaxi app.
HELLO MYTAXI, FAREWELL HAILO
We’re delighted to announce the official launch of mytaxi in London. Hailo joined forces with mytaxi late last year and now we’re ready to unleash our combined awesomeness on London.
We’ve been busy building the best app we can to offer you licensed taxis in over 50 cities across Europe.
Sadly, this means waving a fond farewell to the Hailo app though. We’re rebranding Hailo to mytaxi and asking our loyal passengers to download the new mytaxi app.
Download mytaxi you say…
Simply follow the personalised link we sent in our most recent email or just open your Hailo app and follow the instructions...
What a year 2016 has been… Brexit, The Donald, Leicester City and now, possibly the biggest shock of them all, Katie Hopkins issuing an apology. Plenty to contemplate over a mince pie and a sherry as we go into the Christmas holidays. On that note, we wish you and your families a restful and enjoyable time. Once again, we couldn’t have achieved Hailo’s best year ever in London without your help, so thanks!
