A leading taxi booking app allowing users to use the service via their smart-phones is expanding its operations in Thailand.

Easy Taxi, will not only allow passengers to book taxis through their smart-phones but they will also automatically receive the name, photo and taxi registration number of the driver, as well as the approximate time that it will take for the taxi to reach the passenger. The customer will even be able to follow the vehicle’s location in real-time.

Features such as in-app payment, corporate accounts, favourite addresses, selection of service, special discounts, passenger-driver messaging and ride history will also be available according to location.

According to officials, the app has been downloaded more than 500,000 times in Thailand, and it expects this figure to increase significantly as it expands.

Felipe Kasinsky, CEO of Easy Taxi Thailand said, “The Easy Taxi app allows people to travel better and work smarter. Even in our short pre-launch phase, we have built a loyal customer base and received positive feedback, as Bangkok users come to realize the speed and convenience of booking a taxi through a mobile phone app.

“Registered taxi drivers are also working more efficiently, as the app directs them only to nearby passengers and helps to pinpoint their pick-up locations using GPS,” he said.

Easy Taxi is now available in over 30 countries worldwide, including 9 countries in Asia: South Korea, Malaysia, Philippines, Thailand, Vietnam, Hong Kong, Indonesia, India and Pakistan.

The Easy Taxi global app is available for iOS, Android, Windows Phone and BlackBerry devices.
