Gett is a simple and instant way to order taxis in a convenient way from a smartphone.

The Gett system automatically finds the taxi closest to the user’s location, thus reducing the waiting time to less than 10 minutes. Gett users have access to driver and vehicle information and real-time views of taxis they order. Users can rank drivers, view their previous ride details, and even earn miles points toward free rides and other bonuses. Gett is currently active in four countries and across 100+ cities, most notably Moscow, St. Peters- burg, Tel Aviv, London and New York. Nearly half of the Fortune 500 companies use Gett today and in total Gett has over 9,000 corporate clients.

Gett provides its services to enterprises and individuals through mobile and web applications and aims to become a global leader in the space. It is currently larger than all its direct competitors in Israel and Russia. Other shareholders include Access Industries and Inventure Partners.

On May 24, 2016, Volkswagen Group announced a strategic partnership with Gett and that it has made an investment of USD 300 million into the company. Link to press release.
