A new South African two-in-one booking app plans to compete with Uber

A new driver app is aiming to compete with Uber by enabling you to easily book a taxi (Rideshare service) or get a designated driver (Chauffeur) to get home safely in the comfort of your own car.

The Designated Driver Service will be initially available in Bloemfontein, Cape Town, Durban, East London, George, Johannesburg, Nelspruit, Pietermaritzburg, Port Elizabeth and Pretoria. This will cost R 75.00/ base fare and R13/kilometre and

The taxi service, which will cost R10/base fare, R8/kilometre and R1/minute, will be initially available in Cape Town.

How it works

  • Get an estimate then book for now or later: View your Trip Estimate upfront, then select Book Now to get connected to the closest available driver, or schedule a future ride.
