What is Gett Taxi?
Gett, previously known as GetTaxi, is an Israeli-based startup that connects customers with black car corporate rides and taxis. Gett allows you to hail cars immediately or book them for later. Gett’s main pledge is that they will never surge and their prices are pretty competitive ($10 rides anywhere in Manhattan, for up to 30 minutes and 4 miles).
Gett also has a rewards program for their frequent riders. Gett calls these riders “Gett-Setters” and through using Gett they earn points towards free rides and even gain invitations to exclusive Gett events.
Gett offers a variety of services from wheelchair accessible rides, environmentally friendly options, XL vehicles, as well as standard taxis. Gett also acquired Juno rideshare in 2017 for $200 million, adding three more service options to their offering, Bliss, Lux, and SUV.
Gett is also a popular choice among corporate clients as the app provides a full business offering. Gett is currently available in 80 cities globally including New York, London, Moscow, St Petersburg, Jerusalem and Tel Aviv.
