Since mobile penetration is increasing for searching information and also via various handy Apps for various businesses, products and more available at Google Play Store and others, The Old manual ways of doing business is automatically pushed back. As it is said in technology world, ‘If You Are Not Updated, You Are Outdated’ and same applies to our Taxi unions around Mumbai who have join hands together for 9211 cabs app now. The concept of driving a taxi for survival is historic in city, As mostly uneducated / not so educated people for any some personal reasons got into this profession of driving a taxi decades back and feeling the pinch of technology into their pockets now due to the fast trends of using mobile based apps by our smarty youths and many others in city. To keep par with same and save themselves from getting washed away by the wave of technology, Taxi Union have decided to come up with a Taxi Booking App under ‘City Taxi Scheme 2015’. Currently very few private radio cabs / fleets uses the app which has also created news for women security in Buses and Local Trains. With this App a women or any other commuter can book a taxi and travel safe as government has set of rules compulsory like having a SOS button, Police and RTO helpline numbers inside. Driver details and Helpline Numbers will be on display inside the hired car.
Booking a taxi will be easy as a dedicated call centre (number +91-22-40029211) has been planned which can cater service to about 4000 taxis and can interact with commuters. The limit of 4000 taxis has been imposed per taxi service company / aggregator for better services. So, just download and use this App, Go On Booking options and taxi is at your location. GPS will track your location and inform a Yellow Black Regular Taxi or a Cool Cab driver to reach and pick you up and rest is as usual you do currently. One best thing of getting Kaali Peeli App on your Mobile will be the hard times we citizen’s of Mumbai faces during Bus and Auto strikes. Private aggregators take undue advantage and raises tariff prices (Rates per Kilometre for Day and Night) as high as 5 to 10 times the regular fare rates and we sufferers are the middle class job working crowd who get a pinch. Common people of Mumbai can’t afford such huge private radio fleet hiked prices and don’t get allowance (Claim Back) from their jobs which just few high paying executives enjoy. This new App which will be part of ‘Mumbai City Taxi Scheme 2015’ will help solve / lower these issues and bring relief. Hope, People will not have to chase, beg and get tired just to hire a regular taxi which they pay for.
