& We’re not going anywhere
Firstly, thanks for checking out Taxiapp. Now, we know you’re probably thinking… Do we need another hailing app? Honest answer, we don’t. Not one like the others at any rate. That’s why we’re different.
We’re the only cabbie owned app. The only one that’s a not for profit. The only one committed to protecting the trade. It’s our livelihoods the same as it’s yours. And we don’t want the corporates calling the shots.
We’ll be honest, running the app isn’t free. Advertising. PR. Upgrades. It all adds up. That’s why we charge £20 a month. All of us pay it, no one gets a free ride.
Buttas, Veterans, Mushers and Renters alike. We don’t want to see our trade hijacked by moneymen. So we’ve all come together to fight back. And at 67p a day, you won’t find a better value fight.
This is your app and your trade. We have the tech to compete in the market now. The success of the app is in our own hands. As is the future of London’s black cab trade.
How to join us in making a stand
- Download the App from App store or Google store.
- Open the App and ‘ALLOW’ us to send you ‘Notifications’ and ‘Access your Location’ when prompted.
- Enter your mobile number and tap ‘REQUEST CODE’. You will receive an SMS, enter the number and press ‘DONE’.
- Next you will need a suitable photo of yourself and your Cab Driver Licence (bill) showing the licensing area. Once you have completed your details, you will be redirected to GoCardless to set up a direct debit mandate for £20.00 per month for the membership fee.
- We will verify your documents and once we have your GoCardless mandate your App will be activated. You will receive a text message once your App is activated.
- When you open the App for the first time and ‘Start Shift’ you will be prompted to enter an IBAN number for your bank so that we can pay you for In App jobs. You will find your IBAN number on your bank statement or you can contact you bank who will be able to advise. Please enter this correctly as mistakes are hard to rectify.
- You will then be free to accept jobs on the App. Drivers are paid weekly.
