About mytaxi

A story that became a revolution.

mytaxi is the evolution of the hail since 2009 - the free smartphone app was the world's first taxi app that put people just two taps away from a licensed taxi, and provides a direct connection between passengers and drivers. We are today the leading e-hailing app in Europe, available in over 70 cities within 13 countries. A mytaxi hail is accepted around Europe every second from mytaxi’s network of over 160,000 drivers and more than thirteen million users. With more than 700 employees our entity spans across Germany, UK, Ireland, Italy, Greece, Poland, Spain, Austria, Portugal, Sweden, Romania, Peru and Chile.

Since September 2014, mytaxi has been a subsidiary of the Daimler Mobility Services GmbH (part of the Daimler Group). In July 2016, mytaxi announced a merger with Hailo, the leading taxi app in the UK and Ireland, an important step in becoming the leading taxi e-hailing app in Europe. In February 2017, mytaxi announced the acquisition of Beat (previously Taxibeat), the leading taxi app in Greece, available also in Peru and Chile. In June 2017, mytaxi announced the acquisition of Clever Taxi, the leading taxi app in Romania.
