LONDON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--GetTaxi, the free black cab-ordering app, has launched its new website, www.gettaxi.co.uk, allowing those without a smartphone to use the pioneering taxi-ordering service that has been facilitating thousands of taxi rides each day. It is the only black cab-ordering app of its kind to branch out into website booking and is also available on the iPhone, BlackBerry and Android platforms.
The newly enhanced portal includes a sleek and seamless design that allows the customer to book taxis at the click of a button, whilst businesses can set up and manage GetTaxi accounts with ease. The new features include:
- Instant Online Booking – book your black cab at the click of a button no matter where you are in the world

Shahar Waiser, Founder and CEO of GetTaxi comments: “We are very excited about the launch of our new website. With GetTaxi being an international business, designing the new website was very much a global effort to ensure the right experience is delivered across all the relevant audiences. Our high quality service already available on the smartphone platform is now available to anyone and everyone at the click of a button.”
GetTaxi gives people a quick and easy way to order a taxi from its website or their BlackBerry, Android or iPhone. GetTaxi’s drivers are equipped with a dedicated “plug-and-ride” driver unit, which allows them to instantly join GetTaxi and start earning money.
With GetTaxi already servicing the UK, Israel, Russia and imminent plans to launch in New York made possible by a recent $20 million investment (bringing the total investment in the company $30 million to date), the taxi service is poised for global domination.
GetTaxi is focused on creating the best possible taxi experience for its clientele with the combination of intuitive app and web interface, worldwide presence and exceptional service.
