In late November Uber lost their license to operate in London, UK. While they challenge this ruling they will be allowed to continue working, however it prompted us to take a look at the other options available. It turns out there are quite a few handy apps.
There are a number of apps for booking or locating a traditional black cab; TaxiApp UK, Gett and FreeNow. An alternative service aimed at female travelers is London Lady Chauffeurs which is a private car service.
In addition to Uber there are two other ride hailing services operating in London;
- Bolt which was previously known as Taxify and then Hopp. Their app offers a panic button that connects directly to the Metropolitan Police an added safety feature.
- Kapten is a French company formerly known as Chauffeur-Privé. Their service offers a loyalty program.
