Hailo adds direct ordering through Google Maps
9 August 2016 | 0
Users of taxi-hailing app Hailo will be able to book taxis through Google Maps. The new ordering function will allow iOS and Android users see the estimated availability, price, and travel time to the destination they have requested directions for in Google Maps.
From today Google Map users can order a Hailo-equipped cab through the Ride Services tab positioned alongside the ‘walking’, ‘car’, ‘bike’ and ‘transit’ options in the Google Maps user interface.
Tim Arnold, general manager of Hailo in Ireland, said: “Hailo carries 45,000 passengers every day in Ireland, offering customers a convenient, safe and accessible way to order a licenced taxi. The addition of the Hailo ordering function to Google Maps is a great way to make the Hailo customer journey even more convenient. Google Maps helps millions of people navigate their way around the world. The addition of Hailo to Google Maps in Ireland recognises the key role licensed taxis play as part of Ireland’s transport infrastructure.”
