Ride-hailing app xooox expands into 78 UK districts in first month of operation

xooox (pronounced ‘zooks’), the ride-hailing app that lets passengers and drivers strike their own deals, have announced that they already have active drivers in 78 different licensing districts across Great Britain just one month since launching. 

With drivers signed up from Dundee to Portsmouth, and from Canterbury to Port Talbot, xooox already claim to have the widest geographic reach of any ride-hailing app in the country today​. 

Any private hire or Hackney carriage driver who is fully licensed to operate in any UK district can download the xooox app for free, using it to start building their own on-demand passenger network and set their own fares, all without interference from any algorithm. 

Passengers can use xooox to search for all available minicabs and taxicabs in their vicinity at that particular moment in time, picking their ride based on a broad range of criteria, including the type of cab, accessibility, emissions, ETA, vehicle size and the cost of the fare. The 78 districts where passengers can use xooox to hail a ride include major metropolitan areas – where xooox provides a broader range of vehicle options than any other ride-hailing app – as well as the many other smaller towns, rural communities and indeed cities across the nation, where other apps aren’t licensed or aren’t economically viable. “We’re delighted to see taxi and minicab drivers all across the nation sign up to use xooox. It’s a quick, easy and fair way for them to find their own passengers, and one that gives them complete power over when to work and how much they charge,” said Darren Tenney, founder of Perfect Data, the company behind xooox. 

“This adoption also means that more passengers – including those living and working in places where other apps aren’t available – can now use the very latest in tech to hail a ride.” The districts where passengers can now hail a xooox-enabled cab include:​​ Scotland: Dundee City; Glasgow City; Midlothian; Renfrewshire; South Lanarkshire Wales: Cardiff; Flintshire; Neath Port Talbot; Vale of Glamorgan; Wrexham North East: County Durham North West: Bury; Chester; Hyndburn; Liverpool; Manchester; Rossendale; Salford; Sefton; St. Helens; Stockport; Warrington; Wigan Yorks & Humber: Doncaster; Leeds; Sheffield; York West Midlands: Birmingham; Hereford; Shropshire; Stratford-on-Avon; Walsall; Wolverhampton; Worcester; Wychavon East Midlands: Boston; Broxtowe; Derby; Leicester; Mansfield; North Lincolnshire; Nottingham; Oadby & Wigston; South Northamptonshire East Anglia: Braintree; Chelmsford; Huntingdonshire South West: Bournemouth, Christchurch & Poole; Bristol City; Cheltenham; Dorset; Gloucester; North Somerset; South Gloucestershire South East: Ashford; Brighton & Hove; Canterbury; Chichester; Fareham; Havant; Portsmouth; Southampton; Surrey Heath Greater London: Barking; Brent; Bromley; City of London; Croydon; Dagenham; Ealing; Greenwich; Haringey; Harrow; Hounslow; Islington; Kingston upon Thames; Newham; Redbridge
