Futuregrowth Asset Management has provided funding in the amount of R300 million rand into the taxi industry. Taxis are the main mode of transport for millions of South Africans every day, and the industry has been disrupted over the past couple of years with the emergence of Uber, particularly among the middle- to upper-class. Futuregrowth’s funding goes to SA Taxi, South Africa’s largest financier of minibus taxis, which, in turn, will use the money to provide financing to the company’s Zebra Cabs owner-driver scheme. SA Taxi acquired Zebra Cabs metered taxis in 2015. David O’Sullivan spoke to Gerswhin Long, investment analyst at Futuregrowth about the project.
Save Taxi have started a crowd funding campaign to raise £600k to take TFL to court over their lack of enforcement and not implementing the current laws when issuing a license. The money raised will go towards a judicial review into how Uber were awarded a PHV license and how the legislation has been completely ignored.

The Apple CEO is in town in Beijing along with his company's 1 billion U.S. dollars of investment in a Chinese taxi service company. Tim Cook has taken a taxi ride on Monday with Didi Chuxing's president Jean Liu Qing before meeting software developers in an App Store. It's Apple's first investment venture in China, long after its namesake desktops, laptops, pads, pods and phones have made inroads into the world's most populous country.

China National Radio and a person in the know say search engine Baidu will invest in taxi-hailing app maker Uber Technologies, becoming the latest Chinese Internet firm to take an interest in the flourishing market for transportation apps. The size of Baidu's investment - and its valuation of Uber - are unknown, but the Chinese firm has scheduled a press conference to announce an investment into an unnamed U.S.-based startup on December 17th in Beijing.

But the U.S. startup suffered a number of setbacks this week. Thailand an...
