Text a cab, episode 2
Entrepreneur Mike Durham from Reading (U.K.) has set up a service allowing customers to track the nearest black cab by sending a text message. BeepTaxi links taxi drivers with customers so there will be no need for a radio operator. Clients only have to text their name and destination: the tracking system will find them and the closest cab driver will ring them back to establish a pick-up. The service costs £1 per text message and offers access to BeepTaxi’s 80 licensed black cab drivers in the borough.
