FREENOW have announced the launch of its taxi service in Eastbourne, giving residents and visitors a safe, reliable, convenient and cost-effective way to travel in the area.

Using the FREENOW app, passengers are able to quickly and easily book a taxi, which allows them to track the fare for their ride and when the taxi will arrive.

This launch comes off the heels of FREENOW’s success in Brighton, where the company has been present since 2018, offering residents and tourists a first-class service. During last year alone, the company registered a 25% growth in demand and a 10% growth in trips in this area, as more people rely on the FREENOW app to book their taxis locally.

FREENOW has been supporting the local taxi driver community by offering high earnings and other benefits, such as financial support, to help existing and new taxi drivers transition to electric vehicles. It is this success that the company looks to replicate by expanding into neighbouring Eastbourne.

Vincent Franco, Hackney taxi driver and Committee member of the Eastbourne Hackney Taxi Association, said: I’m delighted that Eastbourne Hackney taxi drivers are able to use the FREENOW app. Now local taxi drivers can benefit from the service and its unique benefits. The app is easy to use and gives me access to a huge customer base from the UK and Europe. This is a great advantage since it increases the chance to get more jobs from tourists and other visitors to the region.”

Mariusz Zabrocki, UK General Manager at FREENOW UK, said: “It is our job to continue responding to increased demand for our service across the UK. Following the success of FREENOW in Brighton, Eastbourne is the next logical step for us.

“Not only does this expansion help us to meet the increasing demand for fast and accessible travel in the area, but it also allows us to continue prioritising taxi drivers by offering them high earnings and other unique advantages of using our app.”
