Aberdeen’s largest taxi company launches app

A new app has been launched by ComCab Aberdeen, part of the UK’s biggest radio circuit, with the aim of making the process of booking a taxi safer and more convenient, as well as stimulating business growth.

At the touch of a button and thanks to GPS technology, users can directly book one of the company’s taxis, get an estimated price for their journey, know the vehicle registration and track their driver’s progress.

This is good news for ComCab’s corporate clients as the app will accept account bookings as well as cash transactions, meaning authorised staff can book their own ground transport and still provide a full audit trail for accounting purposes.

Presently the firm which is based at Aberdeen airport, has 390 vehicles in its fleet, receives around 80,000 telephone calls per month and takes 2,000 plus fares per day.

Scott Douglas, General Manager at ComCab Aberdeen said, “The aim of our app is to make the customer experience as seamless as possible. It puts the user in control, allowing them to see where their taxi is. Gone are the days of drivers being ‘just around the corner’ as our app has a tracking feature which means you can see the driver’s location and watch the cab as it moves towards the pickup point.

“This is not a third party product but our own app with an integrated on-line booking channel. The service will only further enhance our continued growth in the corporate market as well as giving the individual consumer an additional method of booking a cab through a reputable Aberdeen based company.”

Established in 2001, ComCab is Aberdeen’s largest taxi company. It has a range of taxis that are licenced to carry up to seven people. Wheelchair access vehicles are available on request.

All ComCab Aberdeen’s drivers hold a valid Enhanced Criminal Records Bureau Disclosure and undergo a CRB check as a condition of their licence. Drivers must also have passed the City Council’s ‘Knowledge’ test known which assess drivers’ local street knowledge and route planning.

The metered fares are regulated and approved by Aberdeen City Council. ComCab Aberdeen accepts all major credit cards over the phone and via the app.

The ComCab app is available on Apple, Android and Windows phones. To download visit the following links:
