Hailo Brings Its Innovative Taxi App To Osaka

“I am convinced this innovation brings a Win-Win-Win relation to customers, drivers and taxi companies, and will have a big impact in Osaka,” said Simon Fisher, British Consul-General, Western Japan.

As part of UK Trade & Investment Japan’s mission to promote the best of British technology and innovation in Japan, the British Consulate-General recently supported a launch event by a British venture company, Hailo Network, at the Osaka Innovation Hub on 19th September.

Hailo allows users to find and get a licensed taxi in two taps on their smartphones instead of waiting to flag one down on the street. Using GPS technology, the driver will come to pick you up and drive you straight to where you want to go, without any need to know the local language, making the service attractive for the increasing number of British and overseas visitors expected to travel to Osaka.
