Launch DateNovember 1, 2009

Taxi Magic is leading the technology revolution to modernize and transform the taxi industry. We develop our products with a rider-centric perspective and the latest technologies to ensure that taxi fleets have the industry’s best tools to run their businesses and delight their passengers.

As with air travel, hotels, and rental cars, booking a taxi is moving from a manual phone process to an automated online transaction. Ordering online benefits the passenger and the taxi company. For the passenger, online ordering is faster since there is no waiting on hold. It’s more reliable because the passenger can enter their address, rather than relying on the call taker to get it right over the phone. In addition, online tools allow the user to track the status and arrival of their taxi as well as pay by credit card. Electronic booking even improves safety and helps in recovering lost items. Taxi companies benefit by attracting new, valuable, tech-savvy passengers, and they reduce costs and streamline operations by automating calls and status updates. Taxi Magic is excited to leverage the recent advances in web, mobile smartphone, and text messaging technology to provide a complete suite of online taxi booking tools. Taxi Magic also books shuttle, sedan, and limo providers in various cities throughout the country.

In addition to electronic taxi booking, Taxi Magic provides a number of additional technology solutions for transportation providers. These products include the industry’s most advanced Passenger Information Monitor, the leading click-to-call phone directory for taxis, and taxi fleet website hosting. By working closely with our fleet customers, Taxi Magic will continue to expand and evolve our offering.
