TAASAI is planning to hire more than 40,000 drivers in London by the end of the year to help boost the economy and give drivers a fairer wage for their job.

Riders are assured of the best travel experience while using TAASAI for booking rides in the city for city transfers and long-duration trips in and out of London, as their rides are handled by fully vetted Partner-Drivers with around the clock telephone support.

They believe the bulk of the earnings of a trip should go to the vehicle owner amidst the rising cost of maintaining and fuelling the vehicle and therefore they charge less commission. Each fully vetted Partner-Driver will be able to choose the hours they work for a fair wage whilst helping to be part of the bigger picture.

For every 10th ride that a user takes with TAASAI, they have promised to plant a tree, which in effect makes each trip carbon neutral.

The government statistics claim the average person in England made 11 taxi or PHV trips and travelled 59 miles by taxi or PHV in 2019 before the pandemic in 2020. London is a cosmopolitan city with one of the largest users of ride-booking platforms, with over 10 million users using various platforms, TAASAI plans to plant 1 million trees within the next 12 months as Londoners go about their daily business while using the app.

According to a study conducted by researchers at Imperial College London, air pollution contributed to the deaths of more than 4,000 Londoners in 2019.

TAASAI is a revolutionary transportation technology ecosystem that has been designed to tackle these environmental problems through the process of carbon offsetting and whilst still providing the customer with a first-class service.

This summer, TAASAI would be extending an invitation to all partner drivers and users to participate in their first annual outdoor tree planting event in the UK and first of its kind in the world.

A spokesperson for the company said: “Making our infrastructure entirely carbon neutral by using carbon offsetting scheme is a significant milestone and a testament to the determination of our Business to help spearhead a new era of sustainable travelling.

They are over 40,000 Private Hire Drivers in London and they are set to onboard every one of them within the next 12 months to drive this change. Any of them interested in becoming a Partner-Driver for Taasai can download the app and register here to start the onboarding process followed by a physical confirmation in one of our mini hubs around the city.
