You can now book a Taxify via Google Maps

Taxify has announced that their customers will now be able to get estimates for the rides, fares and duration through Google Maps. Taxify ride will be available next to other transport options via the Google Maps app on the users’ smartphone.

The tab will display information about how close Taxify cars are as well as an estimated fare. After selecting Taxify as their ride and tapping on “Open app”, it will open up the Taxify app so you can complete booking the ride. Customers without the app on their device will be prompted to install Taxify first.

Taxify rides in Google Maps are rolling out globally on Thursday, 04 October and will be available in over 15 countries. These include Kenya, Australia, Austria, Azerbaijan, Czech Republic, Estonia, France, Hungary, Iraq, Nigeria, Poland, Slovakia, Mexico, Romania, South Africa and Georgia.

Taxify General Manager East Africa, Shivachi Muleji said the service tab will display information on the proximity of Taxify cars to allow customer’s book the ride.

“Having Taxify as part of the transit options on Google Maps makes it easy for riders, as it offers them comparisons between estimated arrival times, as well as fare options. This saves them time and money,” said Muleji.

The new feature comes just a few weeks after the Cab hailing service rolled out another feature to enable its drivers to maximize their daily earning potential. The Driver Destinations feature will allow drivers to indicate they’re going and then synchronize it with the Taxify app for drivers to find and connect with trips that are on their way.
