Gett's Tel Aviv development center

Gett, previously known as GetTaxi, is an Israeli B2B Ground Transportation Management (GTM) platform and marketplace,[1][2] and B2C ride-hailing app headquartered in London, and owned by GT GetTaxi (UK) Limited [3]


GetTaxi was founded by Israeli entrepreneurs Shahar Waiser and Roi More. In the summer of 2009, Waiser came up with the idea during a thirty-minute wait for a taxi to the airport in Palo Alto, California. GetTaxi's beta version in Hebrew started operating in Tel Aviv two years later, in the summer of 2011,[4] and the service was launched in London in August 2011.[5]

In March 2012, GetTaxi branched out to Moscow,[6][7] and opened its first United States offices in New York City.[8] In May 2016, the Volkswagen Group invested $300 million in Gett.[9]

In 2017 Gett acquired Juno, a ride-hailing company primarily operating in New York City.[10] Gett sold Juno in November 2019 in an agreement with Lyft, that saw Gett form a partnership with Lyft.[11]

Gett’s marketplace model saw further partnerships with Ola in 2020,[12] and Curb Mobility in 2021.[13]

Strategic partnership with the Volkswagen Group

In May 2016, Volkswagen Group announced that it would invest $300 million in Gett,[14] allowing the company to grow its operations across European markets, as well as marking the first foray into the mobility space by the Volkswagen Group.[9]
