29 Nov 2016 Brussels

IRU warmly welcomes two new partners – MIVAI and Splyt – to UpTop, its global taxi network.

IRU is pleased to announce that two new major apps - MIVAI and Splyt - have joined its UpTop network which provides high quality, safe, and legal taxi services to customers around the world.

Helping taxi companies to provide the best taxi experience to their passengers is the focus of these two new innovative additions. The Splyt Alliance is a global e-hailing alliance which unites local players from all over the world. SplytApp allows travellers to share their taxi ride and save up to 40% on a regular fair. With MIVAI, taxi users in Norway can compare taxi prices and book the best taxi quote in just a few seconds.

Hubert Andela, president of IRU’s Taxi Group said, “I wish MIVAI and Splyt a warm welcome to UpTop, IRU’s global taxi network. I am very pleased to see UpTop growing so rapidly and further advancing its coverage and the service provided to customers.”

Philipp Mintchin, CEO of Splyt Technologies said, “Splyt is very excited to become an official partner of UpTop, IRU’s global network of high quality taxi services providers. We strongly believe that the future of the urban mobility market lies in the technological alliance between local leading partners. We also think that this industry must promote ride pooling as one way to help solve mobility problems. Therefore, Splyt software is there to help the urban mobility market meet these two challenges through our global roaming software as well as our social ride pooling feature”.

Matthieu Aemisegger, VP Sales & Marketing of GO Mobile, owner of MIVAI, said, “MIVAI taxi app is very happy to become an official partner of the IRU UpTop global taxi network and we are looking forward to contributing to this outstanding taxi industry project. MIVAI has the taxi industry’s best interests in mind and thrives on offering price transparency and a user-friendly taxi app packed with great features”.


IRU’s UpTop global taxi network is a partnership of taxi industry federations and taxi app providers. Its objective is to promote legal, reliable, high quality and safe services to taxi customers, by making use of the latest smartphone technology in full respect of the regulatory framework in force. The network already on 5 continents & with 19 partner apps now encompasses more than 600,000 taxis worldwide.
