Uber Rival Gett Bids for Radio Taxis to Own Half London Market

  • No figure cited for deal boosting Gett London cabs to 11,500
  • Radio Taxis deal subject to shareholder approval, Gett says

Gett, a global ride-hailing service that started in Israel and is a chief rival to Uber, has offered to buy Radio Taxis in a move that would bring Gett’s London car fleet to 11,500, a number the company says amounts to half of all licensed taxis in the city. 

If successful, the acquisition would make Gett the largest black cab service in London, the company said in an e-mailed statement Thursday.
