Arrival of taxi app

A NEW smartphone app which will allow consumers to verify the details of their taxi and its driver has been developed by the National Transport Authority.

The app will allow consumers to check the relevant details of the taxi they are about to enter – the identity (through photo ID), the car model type, the car registration details and licence expiry date.

Every taxi and hackney driver will be obliged to be part of it, according to Public and Commuter Transport Minister, Alan Kelly.
