Thus, Uber became the first app-based online cab aggregator to operate in South Africa. Uber and Taxify are the major players in the market. Online cab aggregators have expanded the market beyond the existing market of traditional metered taxis. At numerous occasions, violence has erupted between metered taxi operators and online cab aggregator drivers in the country as the metered taxi operators accused the online cab aggregators of stealing business and competing unfairly due to low fares which could not be matched.

In 2018, the major markets in Northern region in South Africa for online cab aggregators are Johannesburg and Pretoria. This is majorly due to the large populations in these cities.
