Easy Taxi: Smartphone Taxi Booking App Reaches Pakistan

Easy Taxi: Smartphone Taxi Booking App Reaches Pakistan

Reported as the most downloaded app in Asia — and after its success in 23 countries worldwide the likes of Brazil, Malaysia and Saudi Arabia — the ‘Easy Taxi’ service has finally come to Pakistan.

With the high demand and lack of reliable and affordable public transportation in Pakistan, Easy Taxi is aiming to fill the gap starting with its services in Lahore and now hitting the Islamabad.

Easy Taxi itself is an app that functions both on IOS and Android that simply makes it easier for its users to order a taxi.

Users enter their pickup point on the app which detects their location and then wait for a confirmation of their booking. Users can follow the vehicle’s location in real-time as it approaches via GPS.

For the Pakistani Masses Easy Taxi Pakistan has also introduced a phone number and a 24/7 functional customer service center to cater to those clients who may not have an android or bad internet connection due to ‘EDGE’ acting up in order to retain that segment of their clientele.

Customers can also SMS the word taxi to 9900 to order their ride.

Easy Taxi, in a communication with ProPakistani, claimed that their core focus is on convenience and safety; every driver and vehicle — that is part of the Easy Taxi fleet — has gone through an admission process to ensure that it meets the standards of safety and comfort.

The firm said that all of its drivers have gone through strict background checks and the company holds documents and information of every driver so as to help in taking any required actions in the case of any incidents such as lost items or unpleasant behaviour by drivers.

Fares for Easy Taxi are reasonable. You are charged at Rs. 40 per Kilometre with additional Rs. 100 fixed charges per ride. That is, it is going to cost you around Rs. 620 for a Ride from Blue Area Islamabad to Airport.

Just to add, Rawalpindi isn’t covered yet. Easy Taxi said they are going to reach more cities, but that is going to take some time.

You can download Easy Taxi App from Google Play Store or from Apple Store.

  • savvy

    40rs/KM is nowhere reasonable.

    • guestopia

      Agreed :8

  • Mohsin

    What about the GPS charges,? Also Tazi Fare is a bit High, for example, Tariq Road , Karachi is 4km away from my place, if i ride easytaxi it will cost me 40×4= 160rs + 100rs = 260rs and its high as compared to any local rikshaw or taxi charges which is 120 or max 150rs.

    • Sulaiman

      Negative.
      your calculation is absoulately wrong, i travelled to max 12Km from my home to N.Nazimabad at Rs 150MAX in that local rickshaw. if i hire easy taxi it will indeed costly at Rs 480 which cant be thinkable & charge extra for GPS

      • Mohsin

        lol dude ! i travelled in a Taxi, not in chinqchee rikshaw , btw leave my calculation, we are both at the same point that easytaxi charges are high! :) they can survive in ISLAMABAD as in isb local fares are already high as compared to lhr and kchi

    • Zain Chughtai

      But the service is very good. I’ve tried it. No other taxi is comfortable enough and you don’t even feel you’re in a “TAXI” you know. Plus Rs.10 difference for that level of comfort and safety? i guess it’s do-able.

      • Mohsin

        rs 10 ka difference hota to khair thee :)

  • Κ@§ђ!ƒ @ђм@đ ♐

    kahan sy reasonable lag raha hy apko bhai jan?

  • Tehsin Qureshi

    White cab/ Metro cabs are more convinient for us in Karachi, as its fare is Rs=25/= per kilometer

  • Junaid Ahmad

    Rocket Internet is doing very well in Pakistani market and their other projects like lamudi, carmudi, and kaymu.pk are also very good.

  • Where easy taxi has gone?
