Beat is a ride-hailing mobile app that is transforming the way people move in their cities and beyond. With just a tap of a button, riders can expect a car to their location within minutes to take them where they need to go.

We started our life as “Taxibeat” in Europe, circa 2011. In three short years we expanded our operations to Peru, where we provide millions of rides every single month. Nowadays, we’re present in Greece, Peru, Chile and Columbia—with many new market launches planned within the coming months. Our great success was attested by the acquisition from Daimler A.G. in 2017. As we continue to grow, we remain committed to offering an affordable, safe and efficient way for people to move throughout their cities.
