Taxi app rivalry in the city xx

Have your say

TWO taxi apps are set to do battle in the city.

Gett, the app that works with licensed black cabs and Hackney Carriages, has become Britain’s biggest taxi app, overtaking Uber.

The introduction of Gett to Portsmouth followed the council giving the green light to rival firm Uber.

The news that Gett would be launching in the city was met with outrage by private taxi drivers as it only works with Hackney carriage drivers licensed by Ports-mouth City Council.
