Drivr

Drivr is currently the largest taxi service in the world, covering more than one thousand localities across the UK, Ireland, Scandinavia and continental Europe.

Our consumer app The main way most members of the public come into contact with Drivr is through our consumer app. The application works by using the GPS function of the user’s mobile phone to locate them on a map. The user can then choose to book a taxi to come as soon as possible to that location or select another location by typing an address into the search field or moving the map. Users can also book a taxi up to twenty four hours in advance. The app is enjoying success across three platforms: iPhone, Android and Windows Phone.

Beyond the app But Drivr is more than just a consumer app. We’re building the world’s largest global taxi aggregation service. The Drivr system is designed to integrate into a range of different business platforms to allow our partners to book taxis for their customers from restaurants, hotels, flight bookings and many more. Drivr is doing the work behind the scenes to make the users entire travel experience seamless.

Drivr handpicks quality companies Drivr collaborates with only one carefully selected taxi company in each location. So every time you book a taxi, you know your journey will be comfortable and safe. All taxi partners must meet our high standards on a range of criteria including average prices, size of fleet and quality of service.
