THE TAXI APP Hailo has become part of a larger brand, and its new owners mytaxi want users to migrate over to its new app.

Mytaxi is a Europe-wide taxi hailing app, operating in over 50 cities across the continent.

The company says that Hailo drivers have been migrating onto mytaxi for several weeks, and customers will have a few more months of using the Hailo app until all of the taxis under the service make the switch.

Hailo’s head of operations, and now mytaxi’s general manager, Tim Arnold said: “We have been working hard over recent months to smooth the migration of Hailo’s pre-existing driver and passenger base over to the new mytaxi app.”

From the beginning of this month, customers could make the switch when prompted to do when they open their Hailo app. This prompt may not appear, however, if you don’t have the most recent version of the app.

If you switch to mytaxi this way, all of your details registered with Hailo will be automatically filled and it will log you in to the new app.

Arnold explained that the company was looking to expand its presence in Ireland. He said: “mytaxi will now be pushing to expand our 10,000-driver fleet and is already the most economical and efficient source of work for drivers.

We’re looking forward to our customers enjoying some new app features in Ireland too, like sharing their location when on a mytaxi journey and saving their favourite drivers.

The mytaxi app is free to download on Google Play and the App Store.
