myTaxi is a free iPhone and Android App developed in Germany, with a track record in European markets, that is now available in Australia.
“myTaxi brings together taxi drivers and their passengers faster and more efficiently than any existing booking systems in Australia,” says Claus Gosch, Director of 1 Touch Taxi Systems, distributor of myTaxi in Australia.
"Using myTaxi, there is no need for passengers to speak with an operator or stumble through an automated telephone system.
“Whether you’re at home, on the street, leaving a club – even if you don’t know where you are – just launch the App, and catch a taxi with one touch.”
The Assisted-GPS technology embedded in smartphones combines with Google Maps to show passengers the nearest available cabs, and then provide instant and accurate locational information to the driver who accepts the request.
“You can book from the street, or remain in a safe location and watch your driver approaching on Google Maps - no need for a call on approach - you’re already connected through myTaxi,” says Gosch.
Gosch sees the built-in feedback tool as a great benefit for passengers and taxi drivers alike.
“Share your experience with other myTaxi users and reward your driver for excellent service.”
No more streetwalking - myTaxi makes taxi travel safer by allowing passengers to find a taxi while remaining in a safe location.
No more fare surprises - myTaxi has a built-in fare estimator.
No annoying ads - myTaxi is a proven technology committed to ad-free operation of its App for both drivers and passengers.
myTaxi is currently enlisting drivers across Australia, and Gosch points out that during the start-up phase some areas may find there are no available myTaxi drivers.
“Don’t panic! Keep the app on your device and follow us on Facebook or Twitter so we can keep you posted about developments in your area,” Gosch says.
Touch. Track. Travel. It’s that simple.
