This is really quite amusing. A tech website held a race between two London taxi apps — the (in)famous Uber and my former employer Hailo. The race was from Kings Cross to Covent Garden, which is only about a mile and a half, and Hailo beat Uber by 45 minutes. The Uber passenger could almost have walked to Covent Garden and back in the extra time that his journey took compared to Hailo.
