CabApp: Connecting the Comunity in over 90 cities with black cabs across the UK and Licensed Taxis in Ireland.We are delighted to announce the release of cab:app’s new technology platform which includes a new driver/passenger app, a dynamic website and an optional chip and pin solution.We currently have over 7,300 registered drivers on the cab:app system across 90 cities in the UK and Ireland. This is a great foundation to help build the largest driver owned taxi network.There are a host of innovative and useful features to help protect and promote the trade. It’s taken us a while but we think it’s been worth the wait. We hope you agree!
Download the new app from this link as soon as possible, after 5 days the old app will stop working. Note: any transactions done on the old app will not show in the new website!
If you are already registered on cab:app (old driver app) just use your existing username or email address with your password to login to the new app.
If you have forgotten your password you can reset in the app and you’ll get email instruction to easily change.
Some highlights of the new app are:
• Earn driver cash back by sharing in cab:app’s revenue whenever you accept a job, process a credit card or introduce a new passenger with your promo code. Each year you can cash in or convert to shares in cab:app and become a co-owner.
• Accept pre bookings as well as immediate hails.
• Use the mobile payment facility with or without our new chip and pin device, which is available at a one-time cost of £116 or €163 (+VAT, P&P) and no fixed contract or ongoing card fees. Don’t forget to look at the all in costs of competitor products, as the device may look cheaper but you pay more fees in the long run. With cab:app you also earn cash back on every card transaction so this will help pay for your device!
We will be moving to making payments 5 days/week and to achieve this our bank will deduct 25p (or 25 cents) flat fee from the total amount transferred on payment days. There is no credit card fee for drivers & passengers only pay 3.9%.
• Easily manage your account from the app or website.
• Report an incident directly to cab:app e.g. touting, helping cab:app build a national database.
In the coming weeks we will be promoting cab:app in the trade press, on the ranks, on social media and providing free consumer material to you in the form of stickers, receipt pads and consumer cards where you can add your promo code to earn cashback.
The success of cab:app will be largely dependent on the full support of the trade and drivers like you. Peter Schive (Green Badge 63768) invented the app to work for independent drivers giving all like minded drivers the technology to help themselves. Drivers can become co-owners of the business with cashback from a share of cab:app’s profits.
cab:app is owned and run by Peter and co-founders Derek Stewart and Jane Van Aken. They have invested their own time and money to bring you this exciting new taxi app, working in partnership with other drivers across the country.
It’s now time to help ourselves and unite through technology to protect, promote and take control of our future with a national taxi app designed and owned by taxi drivers.
