    Uber Rival Taxify Halts Operations

    Following in the footsteps of Karhoo and Hailo, Estonian based Taxify has become the latest Uber rival to cease trading.

    The Estonian based taxi app - which claims to offer lower prices than Uber - lasted only three days before Transport for London (TfL) decided it was operating without a license and therefore unlawfully. Taxify claims that it was offering services under the license of City Drive Services, an operator the company previously acquired, and states that it has been forced to cease trading due to “a technicality”.

    The company was first flagged to authorities by Labour MP Wes Streeting, current head of the taxi All-Party Parliamentary Group on Taxis. Ahead of the TfL decision, Streeting said: “They are openly advertising but don't appear to have a licence to operate. I don't expect TfL to sit on its hands and wait for complaints to come in.”

    Following the comments, Transport for London placed Taxify under “urgent investigation”, with a formal decision agreeing that the company was indeed operating without a license. Taxify “temporarily” halted operations prior to the decision, and will be required to provide proof that it has received a license before being legally allowed to resume business.

    In a statement released online, Taxify said: “Taxify is a technological platform for customers to hail rides from City Drive Services, a licensed London based private hire company. This has been raised as a concern by TfL and in full cooperation, Taxify have temporarily stopped operations to clarify its legal position with the regulator and reach a resolution so that services can return to normal.”

    Prior to ceasing operations, Taxify claimed that it had 3000 partner drivers ready to work on behalf of the company in London, and that over 30,000 users had downloaded the app.
