Taxify is now live in Paris to compete with Uber, Chauffeur-Privé and all the others
From TechCrunch - October 5, 2017

Estonian startup Taxify just opened in Paris. Its a ride-hailing company that is offering lower prices and taking a lower cut on each ride so customers end up paying less and drivers make roughly the same money.

There are so many transportation companies in Paris that its hard to keep track of all them. But two players seem to be standing outUber and Chauffeur-Priv.

Uber currently takes a 25 percent cut on each ride. Taxify only wants 15 percent of each transaction. This way, the young startup can also lower the prices by 10 percent.

For instance, for a 15 ride on Uber, driver ends up with 11.25. On Taxify, the same ride should cost more or less 13.50 and drivers make 11.48.

The company claims to be working with 5,000 drivers already. Taxify relies on professional drivers with a so-called VTC drivers license.
