Apple Central Taxis are to improve their service by releasing a new online booking app.
The app was developed when Apple Central bought out Capital and Gemini Taxis in August 2014.
Capital and Gemini’s fleets of taxis, numbering 90 and 100 respectively, were merged to a form a fleet of just under 200 taxis for the Exeter area.
The app, which is in the final stages of development, will allow users to pinpoint their exact location on the map, using the built-in GPS, for pick up by dragging the ‘drop pin’ to the desired pick-up and drop-off locations on the map. User can also manually enter the pick-up & drop-off addresses.
The user will then receive a text message from the their taxi once it has arrived at the pick up point, with the text also stating the vehicle type, colour & registration to help in locating the vehicle.
The app will complement the phone booking service that Apple Central Taxis already operates, using Gemini’s old number 01392 666666.
