The launch of a new taxi booking concept called Mytaxio, is looking to shake up the industry and empower drivers across the UK.
Mytaxio, the brainchild of Patrick Holm, offers what it claims to be a groundbreaking solution for drivers as they seek to level the playing field and significantly reduce operator fees by up to 50%. The hailing app hopes to make taxi driving a fairer and more profitable industry for those that provide transport services to customers.
The service offers drivers the ability to earn extra commission by adding customers to the Mytaxio system, a new feature that provides the driver with loyalty credits and driver ratings which puts a focus on service and fairness.
Some of the features for drivers include booking alerts, upcoming ride details, a street pick up smart meter with rates and smarter route management saving fuel and running costs with real-time notifications on which pick up is the closest.
From a financial perspective, the Mytaxio system also provides secure wallet payments and daily account reports.
Managing Director Patrick Holm says: “By only considering the wants and needs of council registered taxi drivers and pairing them with the expectations of service users, we have been able to create a next generation distributed cloud base appthat satisfies both parties and offers real rewards for both driver and passenger.
“We are urging anyone working in the taxi industry who is council registered to try the app for themselves with no risk or outlay for additional equipment and join the ranks of the drivers that are already seeing the benefit from our new, fairer system.”
Mytaxio say they offer cabbies a pay as you go commission based fee on rides with zero risks to drivers.
Mytaxio can be used by existing council registered Hackney Carriage drivers. It requires an Android phone to run the Mytaxio smart meter and from there, provides transparent fare data, distance in miles, trip duration, waiting duration and total trip price with no additional set-up or equipment provided.
The new digital system is calibrated to local and regional council rate tariffs and can be easily tailored to work in any location throughout the UK.
For customers, the platform offers easy booking, and the option to track and relax safe in the knowledge that their driver is receiving a fair amount for their services and they can see a transparent break down of their fare. Customers will also be able to jump the taxi line, provide real-time feedback, download e-receipts for their journey and receive rewards for recommending their driver and Mytaxio services to family and friends via social media.
