iCabbi, the world’s lead- ing independent provider of dispatch technology has announced a new joint venture with its UK

Working with Mobilize (Renault Group), iCabbi and its customers will launch the Taxi Alliance on 1 January 2022. This 50,000+ vehicle national organisation will ensure fleets have the tools and network strength to defend and grow their businesses at a time when foreign ridehailing companies are seeking to kill off all competition.


Speaking at a virtual conference attended by over 350+ companies, Gavan Walsh (founder and CEO of iCabbi) remarked: “The market is changing rapidly and therefore something radical is needed to ensure the independent model has a future. The Taxi Alliance is the infrastructure for us to work together and create a stronger shared future.

They bring with them a team of experienced product development, business intelligence, and online market- ing professionals who will work with Taxi Alliance members to attract and retain passengers and drivers. The new TAA management team will report to the Taxi Alliance Board of Directors (chaired by Gavan Walsh) that will have substantial fleet representation.


Walsh added: “A change is needed in our industry and we are building that change collaboratively. We also recognised that changes were needed within iCabbi and the appointment of Odhran as iCabbi CTO and Mark as CEO of the TA, reflects our commitment to our customers. Both have hit the ground running and it is really exciting to see the progress being made on our product suite. Customers will see the impact over the next ten weeks.”


The Taxi Alliance is open to ALL UK and Irish independent taxi, hackney and private hire companies. Walsh concluded: “We understand that many firms are nervous about their dependence on dispatch providers and therefore we have designed the Taxi Alliance to ensure there is no conflict of interest. We welcome ANY company who is willing to work with us in order to ensure that they have a sustainable future”.
