PARIS (Reuters) – France's VTC Chauffeur Privé platform announced Wednesday that it will open in London and become "Kapten," an easier name to be pronounced by non-Francophones that will facilitate its international development.
Held at just over 50% by German automaker Daimler, Kapten, whose main base is France, is already present in Lisbon. It should be a few days in Geneva and the next few weeks in London.
