Building a stronger and
smarter taxi

An IRU initiative

About UpTop

The UpTop Global Taxi Network has been created to promote legal, reliable, high quality and safe services to taxi customers by making use of the latest smartphone technology for taxis, in full respect of the regulatory framework in force.

UpTop is a collaborative partnership between many parts of the industry to become more knowledgeable of both potential challenges and their solutions, to share best practices, and to ultimately create a better service that develops our business to anticipate the needs that lie ahead.

By working together, UpTop can pool resources and ideas to deliver a service across the globe that customers value and will pay for over less personal and lower quality options.

Join the world’s fastest growing taxi network.

As the only global network of taxi industry professionals, UpTop unites the parts of our industry that are committed to improve the best of what we have, to collaborate on what we don’t, and to anticipate what lies ahead.

Any taxi smartphone application service provider is entitled to apply to become an UpTop Partner. To be eligible, the app has to meet a pre-defined set of service quality conditions, and sign the UpTop’s Service Quality Commitment CharterApplications are assessed by the Evaluation Committee.

To find out more and to submit an application to join the UpTop Global Taxi Network contact the IRU in Brussels.
