Most Popular Transportation Apps in The UK

July 15, 2020
Let's face it, as easy, convenient, and accessible public transport in London is, at times, you're just not in the mood to take them. You're not in the mood to raise your hand up waiting for a taxi to respond. You're not in the mood to face the hordes of crowds in the tube, especially during rush hour. You're not in the mood to ride a double-decker bus, mostly because there's bound to be many tourists there. Sometimes, you just want to get to your destination in peace. But if you don't have a car, how can you? Through these top transportation apps in the UK!

Uber

Here in the UK—as well as probably in different parts of the world as well—Uber remains the number one go-to transportation app. It is, after all, the app that started it all. Or at least, made ride-hailing digital platforms a commonality these days. The program is simply easy to use, its popularity makes it that there are many drivers operating at any given time, and it's extremely convenient. Wherever you go to in the UK, they'll not only know what Uber is, but they'll also highly recommend it. And when you want to go from one place to another without being hassled, this is the app you use!

Kapten

What makes Kapten the second most popular transportation app in the UK is they treat their drivers well. This isn't to say that Uber doesn't, but the former has been more transparent with how well they treat the drivers that work for them. App-wise, the program is just as easy and efficient as the latter. It connects users to the nearest driver, gives an estimated time of arrival (which are often accurate), and ther service is excellent. You couldn't ask for a better app than Kapten, especially if you're not all too keen on using Uber for various reasons.

Bolt

While Kapten upholds safety for its drivers, Bolt, on the other hand, prides itself on ensuring the safety of its users. Again, this isn't to say that the first two programs fall short on this, but in the few months that Bolt has started operating in London, it has proven to be quite the safe ride-hailing app. And this is why, since the company is fairly new, it's become a popular go-to app for many commuters in London. It also helps that they plaster their logo unto their cars, making it easier for users to determine which vehicle is their ride.

Gett

Gett is somewhat of a hidden gem in the UK. While Uber and Kapten have captured the attention of many people in the country, Gett has been humbly operating as an effective ride-hailing app since 2011. The difference with them is that they operate like taxis, not cars. Their fares are metered, similar to that of a normal black taxi in London. Technically, they might even be considered as part of the public transport of the country already. And this is possibly why Gett hasn't been as popular with the masses as Uber and Kapten have.

London Lady Chauffeurs

As far as safety is concerned, particularly for women passengers, London Lady Chauffeurs is probably their best bet. The service is simply that: hiring female drivers to take people to where they want/need to go. Though technically, this isn't an app in the general sense, its online platform has allowed the company to operate in such a manner. In many ways, the service takes on two pressing societal issues. The first is the safety of women and children when using public transport or ride-hailing apps. And the second is destroying the unfair and discriminatory stereotype that women are awful drivers.

The UK has its fair share of transportation apps to make commuting an easier endeavor than ever before. Some of them are popular and used around the world, some ensure the safety of users, while others take on societal problems in the process. 


No matter which transportation app you use, it's always better when you use them to go home to a luxurious UK home. You can rent one during your stay here in the country to make it worthwhile.
