Kakao to Expand Van-hailing Service


SEOUL, Feb. 21 (Korea Bizwire)Kakao Mobility, an affiliate of Kakao Corp., the operator of top South Korean messaging app KakaoTalk, plans to challenge the taxi van mobility service market through the expansion of Kakao T Venti, an 11-passenger van-hailing service.

Sixteen former taxi drivers in Seoul recently became new drivers for Kakao T Venti service.

Kakao Mobility began testing the van-hailing service in December. However, with only 70 drivers and 80 vans, Kakao decided to hire private taxi drivers as new Venti drivers.
