CABIFY, the Spanish ride-hailing app, has expanded its operation in southern Spain.
Anyone in the cities of Cartagena and Murcia can now use the Cabify app to order a car to collect them and within minutes one of the drivers in the area will arrive to take them where they want to go.
Vehicles are driven by their owners, who are self-employed service providers.
Journeys can be paid by credit card in advance or by cash upon arrival.
The system is operative in many other major cities in Spain including Barcelona, Madrid, Malaga, Seville, Valencia, Alicante and A Coruña, as well as in Latin America and Portugal.
Taxi drivers have staged several massive strikes in Spain protesting about the ‘unfair competition’ from Cabify and Uber.
