An app is revolutionizing an entire industry. Never before has traveling by taxi been as easy and efficient as with mytaxi – from ordering a taxi, through the cashless payment, to the assessment of the journey. With 70 million passengers and 108,000 registered taxi drivers in more than 50 towns and cities in ten European countries, mytaxi is the largest company of this type in Europe.
Order a taxi by means of the app and see it live on the digital map: That's how easy and convenient mytaxi is. A push message informs you when the driver arrives outside your door. Via the app, the customer can contact the driver at any time and rate the journey after getting out of the taxi – with up to five stars. Every taxi journey can be paid for directly with the smartphone. The receipt is not a slip of paper in your wallet or purse, but a PDF in your email inbox.
mytaxi is a key component of our mobility strategy: Our subsidiary company underlines our ambition to be a leading provider of digital mobility services.
Start-up revolutionizing the entire industry
The idea of creating a new mobility platform for the taxi market in the 21st century has been restructuring the industry, which previously had been organized along traditional lines, and making it more efficient. mytaxi was founded in the summer of 2009 by the Hamburg start-up Intelligent Apps GmbH. At the beginning of 2012, Daimler joined as an investor and completely took over the operator of mytaxi in the fall of 2014. After the leading app-based taxi firms mytaxi and Hailo joined forces in 2016, mytaxi acquired the Greek provider Taxibeat in February 2017. As a result, mytaxi is now available in Germany, Greece, the UK, Ireland, Italy, Austria, Poland, Portugal, Spain and Sweden.
Die mytaxi App ist verfügbar für iPhone (ab iOS 8), Android (ab Android 4.0.3), BlackBerry10 und Windows Phone (Windows 8 und Windows 10).
