Just like Uber, Hailo has now opened its API for third-party developers

In a move that mirrors rival Uber, Hailo has today announced that its public API for on-demand transport is now available for developers to integrate into their apps.

It would seem that a Wednesday in mid-August is the day to launch your transport API – either that or Hailo didn’t want Uber grabbing all the limelight with its announcement today. Whichever it is, developers can now include in-app information from Hailo’s service such as ride availability and the estimated time of arrival of a nearby car.

Another conference. “Great.”

This one’s different, trust us. Our new event for New York is focused on quality, not quantity.

The move follows the integration of Hailo with Citymapper back in July, which is what spurred the decision to make it more widely available to third-parties, the company said. While it is now available to use, interested developers will need to contact api@hailocab.com for further details.
