Cork Company PickaCab launches a new initiative that safely revolutionises the way we book our taxis

With the current focus on the taxi industry, Pickacab has just created a new service, introducing a safer and much more efficient and convenient way to book a taxi, on your Smartphone.

To kick start the service, Pickacab is calling on Cork taxi companies and drivers to sign up for a no strings attached free month trial.

The innovation, developed by Russell Quigley and Paul Higgins from Cork software developers Nixatel, which will be going live in June will enable users to identify the nearest available PickaCab registered taxi on a map and book directly. The application will also allow the user to view the driver’s details such as photo, vehicle type, languages spoken and payment types accepted before the cab is booked. 

Pickacab CEO Russell Quigley is confident that the new application will put the spotlight on both convenience and safety and catch on fast with both consumers and Taxi Drivers/Companies. “In light of recent controversy surrounding taxi driver regulation, Pickacab will serve to protect both the user and the taxi driver, because the application is traceable. Pickacab is coming onto the market at a time when people are acutely aware of their personal safety. The service will give peace of mind to taxi users and worried parents as we complete a thorough check on every PSV Licence before sign up to the service. There is also the added benefit of setting up a pre paid credit account so users won’t have to worry about cash transactions and all journeys will be documented for the user’s future reference.”

Chief Technical Officer Paul Higgins went on to state “The fact that the user can identify and select the nearest cab also makes the service more convenient and eco friendly – why wait for a cab that is 2 miles away when there is one just around the corner! Another benefit is that you can view the cab moving in real time to your destination so you will know exactly when it is outside. This benefits both the customer and the taxi driver”

PickaCab is currently giving a free one month trial to cab drivers who would like to move with the times and try out the service. For further details visit:
