(21 March 2022) Hovertravel has teamed up with Go Taxi to provide easy and simple e-taxi booking for their customers, including the installation of self-service booking screens in their Ryde and Southsea terminals.
Pat Sowerbutts, Commercial Manager at Hovertravel, explains: “We take our responsibility to protect the environment very seriously and we wanted to give our customers the option to choose an electric taxi for onward travel. Go Taxis’ app is simple to use for those with smartphones and their screens in our terminals bring that proven technology directly to the fingertips of our customers who do not use a smartphone.“
Go Taxi works via an app, providing a simple and self-explanatory booking process with no need to make a call. The self-serve screens in the Hovertravel terminals pre-load the pick-up addresses and Go Taxi keep the customer updated via SMS messages regarding driver assignment and driver arrival time.
Kevin Barton, Managing Director at Go Taxis, said “We are very excited by the new partnership with Hovertravel and the introduction of touch screens at the Hovertravel terminals will let people travelling to the Isle of Wight, easily connect with local cab companies who will meet the passengers from the terminal and take them to their onward destination.”
Options to book now or for later, fare estimates, track your car, pay cash or card will appear when booking a ride, alongside other choices including electric Cars, 6-8 seater mini buses and wheelchair access.
