Star Taxi: Order a taxi in just a few seconds, directly from the app, for free.
Say “No” to standing by the phone, waiting for an operator to confirm your taxi order. Give up to getting outside in the street, looking for the cab, not knowing if it arrived or not.
Star Taxi is a modern solution for getting a taxi in seconds: you can place an order without making a call, choose the driver, see the taxi on the map as it travels to your location, know exactly when the taxi arrived, get free Wi-Fi in the car and leave a comment at the end of the trip.
How does it work?
- Your phone detects your position and, once you confirm the address, the app sends your order to the available taxis, starting with the ones nearest to you.
- When a taxi driver confirms your order, you choose whether to go with him or not, or to search for another driver.
- You can see the taxi on the map as it travels towards your location, and when the taxi arrives the driver can send you a “buzz”.
- You can chat with the driver, or you can just call him.
Bonus: you get free Wi-Fi while inside a Star Taxi car.
Star Taxi is the best app for ordering a taxi, available for now in Romania in the following cities: Bucharest, Brasov, Constanta, Cluj and Timisoara and soon in other cities.
