Easy Taxi Commence Global Roll Out, App Starts in Nigeria

Easy Taxi, Latin America's #1 taxi app, today announced its global expansion in Asia, Africa and the Middle East. After receiving an additional funding of USD 10 million from Rocket Internet and the African Internet Holding, the company decided to continue the strategy of fast growth. Just one month ago, Easy Taxi obtained 15 USD million from the Latin America Internet Holding.

“Today, Easy Taxi starts in Lagos, Nigeria in a metropolitan area with 20 million inhabitants and huge potential. In the same way, we will launch Easy Taxi in more African countries in the upcoming weeks,” says Sacha Poignonnec, co-CEO of the African Internet Holding.

It would be available for both iOS and Android users, and the company says it would equip drivers with devices that will be preloaded with the app so that they can get taxi calls and respond back.

Easy Taxi was founded in Brazil in 2011 and is now one of the world’s largest mobile Taxi apps. The company is active in Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Malaysia, Mexico, Pakistan, Peru, South Korea and Venezuela. The value proposition is straight-forward: download/open the Easy Taxi app, available for iOS, Android and the new BlackBerry devices, confirm your pickup point and order your cab with the press of a button.
