Apr 4, 2014 Taking e-hailing to the next level with HeatMap technology Posted in GetTaxi Service Update, News, by GetTaxi team

This week GetTaxi launched a brand new tracking feature to help our black cab  drivers predict the best places to be in the capital to pick up more work, avoid traffic and ultimately make more cash.

It is great news for our passengers too as these all-new HeatMaps will reduce the time it takes the app to locate a taxi and also the amount of time spent waiting for a taxi to pick them up.

Developed by the in-house team at GetTaxi this new technology keeps the company at the forefront of the user experience across the multi-billion European taxi industry and ensures we continue to out-rank in the taxi-app space.

On the drivers in-cab screen a coloured data map will, at a glance, let drivers see the density and volume of customers and taxis in a certain area – a welcome innovation for our growing number of drivers and passengers alike.

This is all part of our ongoing commitment to product development to provide our users (drivers,passengers and clients) with nothing less than an outstanding experience and level of service. The continual refinement and improvement of our product offering is based on constant monitoring of feedback and ongoing testing.

Together with our transparent pricing structure, outstanding customer service and market-leading innovations such as HeatMaps we’re aiming to be the taxi in everyone’s pocket.

We’re passionate about creating the best possible black cab experience for passengers.


Chase the yellows and get away from the greens…

With no minimum fare on any of our rides, we offer the best way for anyone looking to get around town by taxi.

Taxi prices, specifically the minimum fare, are set and regulated by TfL. GetTaxi respects and adheres the regulations and operates within them to provide the best possible service to both passengers and drivers.

We ensure drivers are equally well looked after by providing more lucrative work than our competitors. We are the only taxi ordering app that has a business solution which services some of the largest businesses in the world, with an average fare of £23. Furthermore, GetTaxi’s fees for drivers are less than half of our competitors.

Jul 25, 2013 When you do good, good things happen Posted in BLOG, News, by GetTaxi team

GetTaxi loves to help around. It’s part of our vision – to make the world a little better. Our drivers come in contact with people from all walks of life, thus providing great opportunities to do some good.

From our first partnership with the Association of the Deaf – helping hearing impaired individuals order taxis using the app – without the need to speak or to hear; through the fundraising world tour, where three young chaps circumnavigated the world in a black cab while raising funds for the Red Cross; Our strong partnership with the make-a-wish foundation – making dreams come true for terminally ill children; and to our Closed Door Policy, where our drivers wait for female passengers to enter their homes safely and close the door behind them, after dark.
Doing good is a win-win situation – you contribute to socially responsible causes, and employees and customers alike appreciate and relate to a company which sees past net profits, and bring genuine smiles to less fortunate faces.
