Locally made app, Cabbi will be launching in South Africa soon and we can’t wait for them to hit the ground road running. Made for South Africans by South Africans, the app is a safe, alternative transport solution.

It bridges the gap between the rider and their destination while providing the best experience for the rider and the most earning potential for the driver. For the rider, the Cabbi experience is dependable and convenient with a 24/7 e-hailing service providing luxury travel at affordable prices. For the driver, Cabbi offers a local transportation network that provides them with requests for new passengers and sees them taking home 90 percent of the earnings.

All it takes is three simple clicks: Request – tap to set your pickup location and time, Ride – a driver will pick you up in minutes and payment is via credit card (no tipping required), and Rate – tap to give your driver a star rating to help maintain a quality experience.
