TfL puts brakes on Taxify App in London

Transport for London has instructed a popular taxi booking app to stop trading in the city as it does not comply with strict legislations.

A TfL spokesperson said; “The law requires private hire bookings to be taken by licensed private hire operators at a licensed premises, with appropriate record keeping.

“Taxify is not a licensed private hire operator and is not licensed to accept private hire bookings in London. TfL has instructed Taxify to stop accepting bookings and it has done so.”

Taxify operates in 18 countries and 25 cities in Europe, Western Asia, Africa and Mexico.
