Leicestershire based ADT Taxis have just launched a new APP so that their customers can hail a taxi at the touch of a button. Since its inception the app has made it possible for over 10,000 journeys each week. In addition ADT Taxis Managing Director David Hunter has invited customers to add a tip to their fare which will go directly to the Leicestershire Charity Hope Against Cancer.
Their new APP named Riide links over 23,000 cars which will enable their customers to hail a taxi at the touch of a button. Customers can pay via cash or invoice after setting up an account which is especially useful for business people. Those in need of a ride can view and track their journey and view previous routes they have taken. It’s basically the British version of Uber except Riide will be paying its taxis and every tip will be donated to Hope Against Cancer.
