Press release from: Beat

Beat, Latin America’s premier ride-hailing app, today announced its expansion plans in the region that include the launch of its service in nine new cities; Durango, Villahermosa, Querétaro, Saltillo, León, Aguascalientes and La Laguna in Mexico, and Bucaramanga and Barranquilla in Colombia.

Beat, which has quickly managed to stand out in the ride-hailing industry, continues its momentum of tremendous growth, with the new multiple launches reflecting the company’s expansion strategy in Latin America. Currently Beat is the #1 player in its homeland Greece and Peru, the #2 player in Colombia and Chile, and has quickly become the #3 player in Mexico, within three months after launching in the market. More than 438,000 drivers are registered with the app globally, while more than 13 million passengers are enjoying the service every day.

“By expanding to new cities we aim to provide an affordable, convenient and safe transportation option to even more passengers and drivers, and, in doing so, contribute to the urban transportation landscape of even more cities, while offering anyone in the city an effective and alternative way of earning extra income,” said Nick Drandakis, CEO at Beat. “Our intention is to become Latin America's dominant ride-hailing service within the next few years, delivering an amazing transportation experience at competitive prices.”

The expansion brings Beat’s Latin America presence to twenty cities. By offering the best incentives for drivers, the best fares for passengers, a super user-friendly app and an excellent customer service, Beat anticipates signing-up thousands of drivers and riders by launch in the new cities.
