Taxify, a smartphone-based application that connects riders to their nearest ride at the tap of a button, is growing impressively after only having re-launched in South Africa a few weeks ago.

As a global business operating primarily in Europe, Taxify is one of the fastest growing ride-hailing apps available and has made South Africa its pioneer market on the African continent. The company attributes its appeal to its commitment to satisfying the diverse requirements of all customers and drivers alike.

Since re-launching on 29 April 2016, Taxify South Africa has already added over 8,000 active users, connecting them with the closest ride to their locations, using safe vehicles, respectable drivers and our competitive rates.

Taxify South Africa CEO, Trevor Joseph, added that, in line with the Taxify vision of pioneering the future of public transport in South Africa, the addition of Uber’s former Operations Manager to the team will assist in achieving this vision. The new Operations Manager for Johannesburg joins the Taxify team with immense confidence in the Taxify brand and the service offerings it will provide to a wider market. The Operations Manager aims to implement both strategy and solutions tailored specifically for the local market of professional drivers, with the focus on continuously improving the service we offer our clients, to make Taxify the leading rider app in Johannesburg.

The App was launched in Cape Town in mid-May and is servicing increasing demand daily.
