Estonian-based Taxify, which describes itself as Europe’s fastest-growing ride-sharing platform, has launched its service in Baghdad, with hundreds of drivers signed up to the platform and ready to accept rides.
City Manager of Taxify Iraq, Moammar Hasan describes the service as an app connecting riders, who are looking for a quick and comfortable ride with verified drivers.
“We would like to take part in the reforming process of the economic scene in Iraq and believe that the market lacks a modern and safe way of moving around the city”, commented Hasan.
Taxify contributes to Baghdad’s market space by providing a centralized fraud-free platform and fares based on actual mileage and time driven.
“Taxify allows users to request a ride ride via the app and see the driver approaching on the map and even share their ride details with loved ones, who can track the ride from their smartphone”, added Hasan describing a few of the benefits of the ride-hailing service.
The Taxify app is available now on iOS and Android.
