The European service to call cars Taxify announced a rebranding – now the company will provide services under the name Bolt. According to representatives of the service, the brand change reflects a broader vision of the company, which began to work as a service to call cars and motorcycles, and over time launched the rental service of scooters and plans to expand the product line in the future.

“Taxify was founded 5 years ago. The mission of the company is to make movement around the city convenient and affordable. The first service we launched was the car call service, hence the name of the company.

We consistently adhered to the company’s mission: the platform has evolved and eventually evolved its name. We strive to solve transportation problems by offering new services and would like our brand to reflect the company’s future.

The name Bolt symbolizes fast, dynamic movement – this is how the movement around the city by car, scooter or public transport should be. In addition, the name underlines the belief that the future is in electric transport, ”said Markus Willig, CEO and co-founder of Bolt.

Recall that the platform Taxify was founded in Estonia, at the moment it serves 25 million customers in more than 30 countries around the world. The company has created a common mobile application for calling cars and renting scooters, and is also working to launch a scooter rental service in different European cities.

The new brand will gradually appear in the global markets where the company is present, over the next few weeks, the Taxify application installed on the phones will be updated automatically.
