Ride A Cab with TaxiMonger

If you have been relying on public transport, you can feel my frustration during a recent LRT breakdown early in the morning when I was heading for work. After a long wait, I ended up stranded at one of the stations, and had no choice but to take a cab.

I didn't know that riding a cab can be so easy, comfortable and safe until my friend introduced this Taxi Monger mobile app to me. You can download it to your smart phone via Google Play Store (Android) or App Store. Even if you don't have a smart phone, you can book a taxi via online or on Hypp TV! :D

Taxi Monger allows us to book a cab at the moment we need it or we can plan our schedule ahead. Plus, it offers more value-added services to customers compared to other apps. We'll see why later...

Taxi booking app is a must-have on my phone now  For first timer, you can choose to log in using Facebook or sign up using email address. Then you will receive a SMS with the verification code to activate your account within minutes.

That's it! You can start booking a cab now :) 

3 Simple Steps Towards A Comfortable Journey:
1. Select a pickup location
2. Enter destination
3. Track your taxi 

Step 1: Select a Pickup Location

The app can automatically detect your current location. If you're planning to get a cab from another place, you can use the 'Search' tool. It's pretty fast and easy to detect.

Step 2: Enter Destination and Make Booking

Then enter your preferred destination and pickup time. The best thing is, you can always specify the exact time you want to be picked up and book ahead. It will automatically calculate the estimated fare based on the travelling distance. 

Step 3: Track Your Taxi

After sending my booking request, I was surprised that a taxi driver responded to it almost instantly! Within minutes I received the confirmation notice on the app, and also via SMS and email (Lol, so many!). The details of the driver will be displayed on the dashboard, so you won't get into the wrong cab!

I accidentally selected the wrong date upon booking, and my request could not be cancelled once the cab driver had confirmed my request. So I quickly called the taxi driver to clarify and he agreed to come over on the actual day I wanted. He was really punctual and notified me once he arrived at the agreed location.

If you notice, taxi drivers nowadays are always on the go with more than one smartphone. Hahah. The taxi driver told me that this is the first time he used TaxiMonger and I'm his first customer in this app! *proud* 

We chatted alot along the ride, and he even agreed to take picture with me because I told him I'd publish it onto my blog! :P Thanks for the courteous and friendly services and I feel safe to be on this cab.

It was comfortable to sit in a clean, well-maintained cab too. My trip took around 30 minutes and I ended up paying RM14 for it, with no extra charges applied from this app. Considered so cheap despite of the traffic congestion along the way! Plus, the app is absolutely FREE for download 

....hey, there's MORE!

  1. With your writing skills I'm truly enjoying the design and layout of your blog. It's a very easy on the eyes which makes it much more pleasant for me to come here and visit more often. Did you hire out a developer to create your theme? Excellent work!
