Named UberTaxi, the service strays from the regular Uber pricing structure, instead adhering to Transport for Londons standard three-tier fare rates. Customers booking a black cab through Uber wont be charged a booking fee, but drivers will be charged a flat commission of five percent. The setup is remarkably similar to another cab app, Hailo, which acts as a matchup service for existing taxi drivers and prospective clients in major cities around the world.
