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.
