21 Oct 6 Reasons Why You Should be Using a Taxi App
Gone are the days of calling a dispatcher—today’s consumers can summon a ride with a few taps on their mobile devices. New smart phone technology platforms make hailing a ride a whole lot easier. But not all vehicle-for-hire apps are created equal. With so many options for you to choose from, we offer 6 reasons to download a taxi app like ZabCab to get you where you need to go:
- No surge pricing
Unlike ride share apps, which charge higher fares in time of peak demand, taxi apps like ZabCab do not adjust their pricing when it’s raining, during holidays or any time when demand for rides might be higher. Download ZabCab—you’ll never be surprised by a surge in price. Plus, ZabCab is free for passengers to use!
- Better customer experience
Yeah, we know. You’ve called a dispatcher and waited forever for your taxi. You may have even taken a ride in a messy taxi with a rude driver. Well, ZabCab’s taxi app aims to change all that. We eliminate the call to the dispatcher. The app lets you track your taxi’s arrival and get a confirmation. With ZabCab, passengers have the power to rate their driver. We weed out the bad apples (and the messy taxis), and connect you with great drivers in clean cars. Simply put, ZabCab inspires drivers to perform better, providing you with a better overall experience.
- Safety first
Have you ever hailed a ride for yourself late at night, and wondered who was coming to pick you up? With ZabCab, you know who—and what—you’re getting. ZabCab works with professional, licensed taxi drivers. Unlike the ride shares, taxi drivers are subject to stringent FBI background checks, so when you use our taxi app, you are assured of getting a ride from a thoroughly vetted driver with a commercial license in an insured vehicle.
- Short (and accurate!) wait times
A favorite feature of the ZabCab taxi app is our GPS enabled map, showing you exactly where the nearest driver is located. How cool is that? We never show phantom cars on our maps, and always give the passenger an accurate wait time. If you’ve ever waited for a taxi to arrive from dispatch, you’ll be thrilled to know the average ZabCab wait time is a speedy 7 minutes during the week, and 5 minutes on the weekends!
- Experience counts
ZabCab taxi drivers are experienced. They have had to meet strict requirements in order to become a driver, and many have worked in South Florida for years—or even decades! Taxi drivers rarely rely on their phones for directions, they know the region’s traffic patterns, and they know the hottest destinations. ZabCab driver Claudia Camaranto says it’s one of her favorite parts about driving a cab. “People ask me what there is to see and do in Miami, and I tell them all the best places to go,” says Camaranto, who has lived in Miami for 20 years.
- Method of payment is a personal preference
Unlike many of today’s ride sharing apps, ZabCab’s taxi app does not require a passenger to store their credit card information in the app. But you can pay with a credit card if you wish. Cash or credit—the payment choice is yours!
