HITCH Bermuda Driver is an application for taxi drivers that allows them to use Bermuda's first electronic taxi booking app putting drivers in direct contact with customers. HITCH Driver Console allows drivers to create an account, accept customer requests, and earn additional money from HITCH customers. When the HITCH Driver Console app is running, it will notify drivers when a booking is requested. Drivers will be able to accept the booking with one touch of a button. At the end of each ride HITCH will automatically bill the passenger’s credit card, tip included!
This application is only for licensed taxi drivers in Bermuda. In order to register you will need a valid Public Service Vehicle License, a current Taxi License, and a valid Bermuda bank account.
Should you wish you use HITCH to book a taxi, please download "HITCH" for customers which can be found in the App Store.

Ratings and Reviews
Thankful for this App
There are many operators who do not like the incessant chatter of the radio or the tiresome process to get a job from it. Hitch removes all of this. Jobs you ACCEPT are yours and are rarely stolen. The application is easy to use, provides the necessary details about your job and what you are earning. Contacting the customer is easy — would love a text option however. Usage by locals has increased.
