There are a handful of taxi hailing apps in Kenya even though most people only know of Uber. Uber has been getting a bad reputation recently with most people finding the service unappealing and thus opting for alternatives.
If you are one of the people who have been looking for alternatives, you may have come across Taxify. Taxify has been in Kenya for a while and knowing its rates is a good start for those who are thinking about using it. At the moment, Taxify in Kenya is only available in Nairobi and Mombasa, these are the two biggest cities in Kenya and it makes sense for the company to concentrate operations here. Even though Taxify has been in Kenya for some time now, the company is not willing to reveal how many people are using its services just yet. This is not an issue as we are more interested in its rates.
