Ride-hailing app expands into 78 UK districts


Ride-hailing app xooox has expanded into 78 districts within its first month of business.

The app allows licenced taxi drivers to build their own on-demand passenger network and set their own fares.

Passengers can use the app to find a driver a strike a deal based on their driver needs, such as car size, ETA and emissions.

With drivers signed up from Dundee to Portsmouth, and from Canterbury to Port Talbot, xooox already has the widest geographic reach of any ride-hailing app in the country today.

“We’re delighted to see taxi and minicab drivers all across the nation sign up to use xooox,” said Darren Tenney, founder of Perfect Data, the company behind xooox.

It’s a quick, easy and fair way for them to find their own passengers, and one that gives them complete power over when to work and how much they charge.

“This adoption also means that more passengers – including those living and working in places where other apps aren’t available – can now use the very latest in tech to hail a ride.”
