A NEW taxi firm is coming to town.

Described as a “private hire technology platform”, Veezu has launched in Barry.

Veezu offers passengers multiple booking options, via phone, web, or the Veezu mobile app, and offers multiple payment options.

The Wales-based firm partners with more than 16,000 local drivers in the UK, with 1,500 across South Wales.

Through its ‘Funded by Veezu initiative’, the company also supports Barry RFC, Ty Hafan and Childline Cymru, alongside being official ride partner for the Cardiff Devils, Dragons RFC, and Newport County FC.
