Disclosure: I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Taxi Magic. I received a promotional code to facilitate my review and a promotional item to thank me for participating.
In a former life I was a software trainer. I be-bopped around the United States via planes, trains, automobiles and sometimes taxis. Thus, I have experienced a fair share of no show or late taxis. There is no legitimate excuse for being tardy, for a client. It was unprofessional to clients yet I had to rely on others to navigate me through unknown areas.
I would call a toll-free number for a local taxi service to request a ride and get a rough estimate from an uncertain dispatcher. Sometimes I would wait at an airport terminal or outside my hotel. Waiting. Waiting. And more waiting.
The pick-up time would increase from 10 minutes to sometimes 60 minutes. On those days, the experience was dreadful.
Fast forward to 2009. Taxi Magic has been fine tuning the process of their customer experiences. With a 99.9 percent pick-up ratio, it translates to happier passengers. The best part is all taxi drivers go through background checks, are licensed and insured. If only other taxi fleets had this type of service when I traveled. I could have avoided a few embarrassing moments.
Downloading the app was as easy as a push of the Taxi Magic button. After I opened the app, I plugged in a few pieces of important details. Name, approved location services, billing information, agreed to terms, then it was ready to go.
My initial experience requesting a taxi was interesting. Like an anxious kid, I waited for the app to assign my request to a driver. Then, I watched the little taxi icon navigate, real-time on my screen. Closer and closer, I knew exactly where the driver was and the approximate arrival time.
It was almost too easy. The friendly driver took me to my destination. I did not even have to tell him because I already had put it in on the Taxi Magic app. I am impressed. No fuss, I like that.
Watch out Los Angeles County, there is a quicker and easier way to get around. Ditch your car and hail a taxi, via the Taxi Magic app.
A simple and easy download and voila, a ride at your location within an average of 6 minutes. With a click of the button, a taxi is on the way or schedule a future ride.
