Taxi & Ride-hailing


A little background

We’ve all taken a taxi. We’ve all called a cab. And with the rise of the new mobility players we’re assuming you’ve all hit up an app. But where do these new players fit alongside the traditional taxi within urban life? To complement the traditional modes, they offer a first and last mile option for city living. One of the biggest developments during the past five years, and a change that has impacted the taxi sector more than most, has been the emergence of ride-hailing companies. Transport regulators around the globe are following different approaches to manage both traditional and new emerging mobility options. Recently, many cities are diluting the line between taxis and ride-hailing sectors.

UITP knows the place that taxi transportation and ride-hailing companies have in the discussion concerning the future direction of urban mobility…and we regularly work with recognisable names to share that expertise with an international audience.

What do we do?

At UITP, the taxi sector and the new mobility players work side-by-side within our international family. Many of these new players are now part of the Taxi and Ride-Hailing Committee, bringing together recognised experts from both sectors to examine the challenges ahead.
