A new update from transport app Hailo will allow customers to book their taxis through navigation programme Google Maps.

Customers will be able to get price estimates through Google Maps as well as wait times and travel times for directions requested in-app.

The service will be launched today on both Android and iOS and can be accessed through the Ride Services Tab.

The new update has been made available in the UK and Spain already with Ireland becoming its third market.

Hailo Ireland general manager Tim Arnold said Hailo carries around 45,000 passengers in Ireland every day.

"The addition of the Hailo ordering function to Google Maps is a great way to make the Hailo customer journey even more convenient. Google Maps helps millions of people navigate their way around the world. The addition of Hailo to Google Maps in Ireland recognises the key role licensed taxis play as part of Ireland’s transport infrastructure.”
