Who are we?
Mytaxio is a new and SMART professional delivery and marketing service that is wanting to support council registered taxi drivers to provide a fast and efficient service to customers, at the best price, any time of the day.
There has been something of an explosion of demand from people wanting to order food via mobile phone app in the country and the taxi industry is the same on a slightly less progressive level.
Most of the Taxi apps that are currently available to order a taxi online have limited features and are just a simple extenion of picking up the phone and dialling the taxi operator. Most rural taxi operators booking apps dont have the features like Uber and other have.
Using this type of booking method still costs the operator money as someowhere in the process the human operator still has to be involved in this process and paid accordingly to do this task on your behalf.
Mytaxio on the other hand, has been created to stream line and automate this process to ultimately save you money on each taxi ride that you take, as we are a cheaper alternative to your traditional taxi operators.
With a fair profit sharing cost structure that has been designed by people who know how to develop IT related products, you can be assured we have the best interests of the you and the driver.
Our solution ensures that the taxi network is operated far more efficient at a cheaper cost, which in turn is passed on to the taxi and customers alike.
We are also a friendly bunch who share the same common interest in ensuring we provide the best solution to customers in all locations.

Taxi industry growth
The on-line ordering space for Restaurants & Takeaways is growing year on year with 50% of food purchased from restaurants being eaten at home! The takeaway industry is quickly making giant steps to keep pace with the demand of the general public.
The taxi industry in some aspects is still operating in the dark ages and you the customers are paying for those providing a service in the dark ages.
By supporting Mytaxio by registering an account and booking a taxi you are not only supporting a local business, but you are giving a vote of a smarter way of doing your daily business even if it is getting you home safely from the pub without any one jumping in your taxi before you!
Our bespoke online ordering system and applications have been developed by our in house development team and are easy to use. Requests for Taxis are distributed via the fully integrated Mytaxio management system.
You can order from where you are and state where you want to go and know how much your taxi fare will be in advance of executing the request and then see the drivers face who will be coming to collect you with the community score against their profile before you get in the car. Also if you fancy another quick drink at the pub before your taxi arrives to take you home safely, just track your taxi to your location.
Once your trip home is under way, you will be able to quickly pay using pre installed credit so your not having to stop off some where to get some cash from a cash machine, delaying your journey.
What does it cost?
Cost is free to join and the only thing you need is a working Android phone (Apple coming in the near future) and you can be up and running straight away.
Why join now?
There has been something of an explosion of demand for people wanting to book their taxis via online booking apps rather than speak to the operator direct which has become extremely apparent especially with the growth of mobile technology. Even with online booking apps that operators are using as a bolt on addition traditional way of booking a taxi, operators are trying to embrace technology to save them money.
The taxi driver in return for the receiving your taxi request, has to pay a weekly rental charge for the operator, which guess what, is paid for by the person who is booking the taxi.
In fact the customer is paying for the person that you call to process and send the instruction to the taxi driver to collect you from your location, so you can see why your taxi fare is so expensive. This will only ever increase as the minimum wage increases.
Most taxi operators are starting to rent modern dispatch app packages that are usually purchased by the operator and are expensive per month which the operator needs to pay for, so this is then classed as an over head which you the customer pay for.
The same can be said for phone operators operating from an office, as they along with the office need to be paid for, again this all has to be paid for by guess who? YOU.
In our community all the above actions to get you home from the pub are done by only your mobile phone with the request going directly to the driver bypassing the expensive over head meaning cheaper fares for you the customer. Its that simple cut out the middle man and save money!

What is Credit in wallet?
- Credit can be added to your secure wallet by purchasing before your trip via Paypal or credit cards or by using qualifying credit that is accumulating credit from recommending people to join the service
Mytaxio is a self governing network?
Mytaxio is not an operator or profess to be one, we are a platform to connect council registered drivers to paying customers as cheaply and safely as possible, servicing both parties interests.
Customers provide driver feedback which builds credibility for the drivers within the network and weed out the poor performing drivers which are not servicing the community well.This will also promote drivers who provide an excellent service for the public as they will be promoted and rewarded within the community.
Customers are motivated to promote the community as they receive not only upfront discount on their taxi fee, but will also benefit from discount in the form of free credit for recommending their friends and family who then go onto be paying customers.
Drivers are encouraged to introduce more drivers to the community as they will get discount from their future Mytaxio fees (that are used to access the service), so this means there will be more taxis available to meet demand. All parties are winning from the community.
We want to encourage all potential customer to engage with us by one of the following methods:
- Like our page on social networks to support a local company trying to rectify an issue.
- Provide constructive feedback.
- Down load and Register as a customer and check out taxi fare estimator
- Share with friends and family and be the first to qualify with our loyalty program to earn future credit that you can use for free taxi fares.
We just ask 5 minutes of your time to test and support what we are trying to achieve to transform our transport system.
If its still not for you, please come and say hi on our social network channels as we are a friendly bunch who are just trying to make a difference to our Town.
