Rabat – Heetch, the famous French mobile app that provides drivers for transportation, is now available in Rabat.
After successfully launching in Casablanca in November 2017, Heetch extended its services to the capital on September 17. For its first run in Rabat, Heetch began with a fleet of 200 taxi drivers.
In Casablanca, the application has become established in less than a year, with a large network of partners and a fleet of 4,000 taxi drivers.
“This choice has been carefully considered, since Rabat is the capital of the country and the second largest city in the Kingdom,” said Teddy Pellerin, co-founder of Heetch, in a statement issued to MAP. Rabat and the city of Sale together make the country’s second largest metropolitan area.
Heetch has ambitions to extend its services all around the North African country. “We are happy to accompany the spread of Heetch to other cities in Morocco,” said Sadik Boujaera, deputy secretary general of the National Union of Taxis (UNMT).
In addition, Heetch developed the “Fiddek” label thanks to a partnership with UNMT, in which Heetch is under the supervision of UMT.
The “Fiddek” label guarantees criteria related to the cleanliness and the quality of service.
The Heetch application, which is downloadable on iPhone and Android, will allow users to be both geolocated and informed in real time of the progress of their drivers.
Heetch hopes to provide legal, safe, reliable, and user-friendly mobility.
Heetch was a French start-up founded in April 2013 by Teddy Pellerin and Mathieu Jacob. It is inspired by several websites, like Airbnb and Drivy.
Heetch wants to make night transportation more accessible aims at young people returning from an evening out. Eighty percent of its users are under 25.
