Uber rival to appear, to give you more choice
Taxi drivers have been angry at the advent of Uber, and now they'll have another one to contend with in the form of Karhoo. The app is going to roll out across cities in the UK later this year.
The company have already signed up a number of licensed taxis and private hire cabs all over the globe.
The founder Daniel Ishag says: "Uber needs competition and people need choice. The key factor of the new app is that all the drivers are licensed and full-time."
"This is much safer and brings accountability which is important for passengers."
"We have an extensive network of drivers so throughout Greater London it will only be about three to five minutes before a driver can pick you up. At the moment this is only possible in central London."
One of the issues around Uber, for some people, has been the safety of passengers. Karhoo is clearly gunning for that angle, but there's still likely to be protests from cabbies outside of these services.
