Easy Taxi, a mobile taxi application, has promised to ‘show some love’ to its customers in Nairobi on August 2, 2014 with free taxi rides under its new promo ‘Free Taxi Day.’
Starting on Saturday at 12:01am until 11:59pm, passengers in Nairobi will enjoy unlimited free rides worth up to KSh500 each, Easy Taxi said.
“Since our launch in Kenya on May 1, 2014, Easy Taxi has become Nairobi’s number one most downloaded and used taxi application. We provide hundreds of passengers each month with stress-free travel experience which not only makes for happy passengers but also helps drive much needed revenues to the taxi industry,” said Peng Chen, Managing Director of Easy Taxi Kenya.
According to Peng, they picked Saturday as a free taxi day because they want people to enjoy the benefits.
“We hope that people will use this opportunity to check out all the amazing places that Nairobi has to offer – from restaurants, to parks, to visiting friends and family. We want to show people that wherever you want to go, Easy Taxi can take you there in safe, convenient, and reliable manner,” he said.
So how does Easy Taxi work?
Available on Android, iOS, and Windows phones, Easy Taxi aims to connect passengers and drivers in a safe, convenient, and reliable manner. Once customers have downloaded the free application, they can request a taxi wherever there are in Nairobi. The application automatically assigns you the closest available taxi driver.
The passenger can see the driver and car details as well as track the taxi’s arrival in real-time.
