NEF launches crowdfunding campaign to build an ethical alternative to Uber

We want to build a driver-owned minicab firm and ride-hailing app

This crowdfunding campaign is now closed — thank you.

This September, Transport for London announced it would revoke Uber’s licence because it was not a fit and proper’ company to run taxi services in the capital. The prospect of Uber losing its licence places a once unthinkable alternative on the horizon: a new ride-hailing app, owned by its employees and which gives a fair deal to both drivers and passengers.

Watch: We can do better than Uber

Together with trade unionists, tech partners and passengers, we are at the core of a group of socially minded people who know they can build something better than Uber – a driver-owned alternative that is just as convenient and competitive on price, but treats its passengers and drivers with respect.

The new service ­– which we are provisionally calling CabFair ­– will put drivers and customers firmly in control of the company through an ownership and governance structure that ensures they have strong voices to guide the enterprise’s strategy.

If you value great public services, protecting the planet and reducing inequality, please support NEF today.
