Maaxi, the next generation taxi app for black cabs only forever, will start pre-registration of taxi drivers, Monday 15th September, toward formal sign up and download in just a few weeks.

The passenger App, conceived 24 months ago, is a journey planner much like Google Maps or Citymapper but unlike Google Maps’  Uber option and Citymappers’ Hailo option, the App offers black cabs only in shared and normal fare format. This means that passengers can choose to upgrade from a train to a black cab door-to-door, something that they cannot do with other Apps (the price of an Uber or a Hailo is 5 to 10 times higher than public transport versus 1.5 times higher with a fully shared taxi on Maaxi). In addition, unlike in Google or Citymapper, in Maaxi the taxi booking is done within the App.

Nat Rothschild, representing Maaxi, said: “This weekend saw articles highlighting new congestion charge plans along with a the lack of available funds for transport investment. Hackney carriage drivers’ are critical to resolving London’s transport problems and I am betting with Maaxi on the increasingly important role they must play in TfL’s plans to address the future of transport in London.”
