A taxi app for train passengers to be trialled at Ingatestone station

12:46 16 January 2014

A mobile app and website has been created so train passengers can book taxis and is being tested at Ingatestone station.

The “Cab & Go” service will be available as a smartphone app where passengers can book a taxi driver to and from the station on the go without the need for a local taxi firms’ contact details.

Greater Anglia’s commercal director, Andrew Camp, said, “The new service is a further step in making rail travel even more convenient for our customers. It will be a useful tool that will provide extra confidence for those travelling on

business or visiting unfamiliar areas. Passengers can quickly and easily use the app from wherever they are to organise a cab to take them to or from the station with no hassle.”

For more information or to download the app visit www.abelliogreateranglia.co.uk or www.cabandgo.com

The new Cab & Go service is delivered in partnership with Cabline UK Ltd and T Dispatch Ltd.
