Karhoo's Taxi Price-Comparing App To Take On Uber

Posted on May 12, 2016

Since Uber launched, taxi-booking companies have scrambled to create their own mobile-first services that give customers plenty of options, but ultimately lock customers to their fleet of drivers.

A new entrant, Karhoo, launches as yet another of those types of apps, but it's playing things a little differently from Uber and its rivals. It's signed up 80,000 drivers of licensed black cabs, minicabs and executive cars (a third of which are in London) to provide a price comparison service for taxis across the UK.
