Hailo is doing very well thanks to this morning's rail strike

The taxi-hailing app is incredibly busy right now.

THE COUNTRY IS currently in the grip of a rail strike that’s left buses packed, tourists stranded, and traffic absolutely mental.

There’s no better evidence of the chaos than this Vine of Hailo’s driver network in Dublin:

All those yellow squares (and all those desperately waiting blue stick men).

They’re tweeting pictures of their team hard at work, saying the app is going “into overdrive” this morning.

The strike will be called off for today at 9am, just after the rush-hour period, and things will be back to normal.

See that? That’s a serious amount of idle chat about water charges and the government. Godspeed, everyone.
