The latest version of this app includes new features designed to improve flexibility and transparency of price for our passengers. We're also introducing new tracking features that allows passengers to share the status and location of their taxi with their family and friends. Read below to learn more.
Lock In Fare
Passengers will now be able to 'lock in' their fare before requesting service, so that they will know exactly how much the price will be before they even enter the taxi. Passengers can also still choose to use the taxi meter in the vehicle if they would like more flexibility in their destination/ route, or if they just prefer a more traditional taxi experience. The choice is yours!
Parent Tracker & Taxi Tracker
With the new “Parent Tracker” feature, parents can register themselves in their children's account inside the app. This allows the parent to receive text message notifications any time their child books a taxi inside the app. The parent will be able to tap on a link in the text message to view the last known status and location of their child’s taxi.
You can also now use the "Taxi Track" feature to send friends or family members a text message which will allow them to see your taxi's last known location and status.
In App Payments
We've also added new payment options to provide a safe and secure payment method inside of the app! Now passengers will be able to register their credit card and pay for their taxi through the app!
Passengers can also now split the payment between multiple app users. By using the split payment function users can send their friend a text message allowing them to pay for 1/2 of the fare with their registered credit card inside the app.
Finally, we've added the ability to pre-select a tip for your bookings. If you wish to always include a 15% tip for example, there are new options inside the settings menu in order manage your payment options and apply a 15% tip automatically at the end of a trip, making it easier for users to tip at the end of their trip.

It's only good for travel one-way
The app insists your starting point is the current location of your iPad, and that is not very accurate, either.
In order to pre-book your return trip you need to call or use website.
Call me spoiled, but I expect apps to mostly work. GPS is always off, payment through the app never works, cancelled pick-ups never go away and the ETAs are hit and miss. There’s really no comparison to Uber’s experience.
Tried in app payment and it worked great. Great feature for a taxi.
Up to six family members will be able to use this app with Family Sharing enabled.
