Victoria just got its first all-in-one taxi hailing app
It’s not Uber or Lyft, but it’s Victoria’s first local taxi hailing app!
As of Thursday, August 15th, people living in Greater Victoria can download the ‘Lucky to Go’ app to hail taxis and track their location from virtually anywhere in town.
Available on both Android and iOS platforms, this app hopes to incorporate drivers and taxis from every fleet in town, giving customers the option to choose their favourite brand.
“We have opened our services for any registered taxi service and driver with an appropriate license,” Mandeep Rana, founder of Lucky to Go, tells Victoria Buzz.
“They have to have a Class 4 license and the driver has to submit proper documentation that supports the fact that [they’re] a cab company driver.”
Much like Uber and Lyft, the app will calculate your fare, track the driver via GPS navigation, invoice you at the end of the trip, and let you rate your ride.
On the flip side, drivers registered with the service can view customer details before deciding to accept a ride, and also have the chance to rate their passengers at the end of a trip.
