by three Lon­don black taxi driv­ers, Hailo can now be used in more than 20 cities, in­clud­ing Madrid, Sin­ga­pore and Tokyo. It links 800,000 reg­is­tered users with more than 16,600 driv­ers in Lon­don. Hailo for Busi­ness syncs with cor­po­rate cards and of­fers real-time ac­count­ing and pre-book­ing hours or days ahead. In July, Hailo an­nounced it is sell­ing a ma­jor­ity stake to Daim­ler and was merg­ing with ri­val MyTaxi, another on-de­mand rideshar­ing com­pany that was ac­quired by Daim­ler sub­sidiary Moovel in 2014. Hailo gets re­branded as MyTaxi, and the com­bi­na­tion forms one of Europe’s big­gest car-hail­ing ser­vices, the bet­ter to com­pete with Uber’s ex­pand­ing pres­ence there.
