Just when thou thought it couldn’t get any weirder.... breaking new that LEVC allegedly looking to promote a ride pooling on demand bus service.
The makers of London’s only current available Taxi, the TXe, appear to be promoting this German based private hire styled ride sharing company which is expected to replace certain bus routes with a low emission vehicle.
LEVC put out this tweet yesterday:
Congratulations @kvgOF_mbH @door2doorHQ & the Hopper; a bus-on-demand bookable via app.
This completely new public transport service lets customers indicate their desired pick-up & destination, then an algorithm determines the most optimal route according to their requirements.
Drivers asked (via Twitter) if the drivers of this vehicle will be Taxi drivers, or PH bus drivers, but the company made no further comment.
