With Whim you can book a taxi in the metropolitan area without having to ask about prices for a ride. After you have set your point of departure and destination, Whim automatically gets offers from our partners for you to choose from. After this, the app requests the closest available taxi to your location.
Why use Whim to book a taxi?
- The Whim app is a MaaS or Mobility as a Service -solution that collects multiple different modes of transport into a single application, without any additional expenses for the users. You can use a single app to manage and pay for public transport, city bikes, taxis, e-scooters and car rentals.
- With Whim, you’ll receive an offer from more than one of our trustworthy partnering businesses (Taksi Helsinki, Lähitaksi & Menevä) and you are always shown all options as well as prices in advance. You’ll also know the pick-up time in advance, so you can compare different service providers directly in our app.
- Because the payment for your ride is made with the app, you’ll know what the ride is going to cost when booking a taxi.
- Those who have purchased a season pass or a series ticket have access to various taxi benefits and offers. You can read more about the Whim Benefits included in season and series tickets here.
- Our app works internationally and we are constantly expanding to new cities, so you can use Whim when travelling.
