DURBAN - Ride-hailing service Taxify is expanding its South African operations to include four key coastal towns ahead of the peak holiday season by launching services in late November.
The four coastal towns are Plettenberg Bay, Knysna, George and Mossel Bay.
This announcement continues Taxify’s recent aggressive expansion across South Africa and comes after the ride-hailing service was launched in East London, Polokwane and Pietermaritzburg during the last two months.
Taxify said in June 2018 that it had completed an investment round of $175 million, and that it intended to use this investment to expand its services worldwide - particularly across Africa.
“Adding these four new towns to our South African network emphasizes our continued focus on launching ride-hailing services in more towns and cities across the country, outside of the obvious main centres,” says Gareth Taylor, country manager for Taxify in South Africa.
