Find Private Cabs In Lagos With TaxiPark App
I so love it when people solve needs I have. You know all those times when you’re stuck on the road and you need to get a cab and you can’t remember the phone number of one of those private cab companies in Lagos? TaxiPark solves that problem.
Available on the web, mobile and for download on Android and iOS (they’re awaiting approval for a BlackBerry app), TaxiPark allows its users find cabs within local governments in Lagos State. It currently lists the names of drivers, codes and numbers of MetroCab drivers. It hopes to list other private cab services soon.
To use the app all you have to do is select a cab service provider, then select/search your location and pick one of the cab drivers available in your Area. Don’t forget to call them o!
Here are a few screenshots of the service
TaxiPark was developed by “Interactive Shark” a team of Ugochi Ugbomeh (C.T.O), Timi Omai (C.F.O), Adejola Adeyeye (C.O.O) and Babatunde Folorunso (Marketing guru for TaxiPark).
Founder/CEO of Interactive Shark, Rodney Jackson-Cole says they were brainstorming for ideas last year when CTO and only female, Ugochi Ugbomeh suggested they build a taxi app like the many apps in the UK where she lives. They made a mock app and showed it to MetroTaxi who totally loved the idea. They then launched the first build in February.
Jackson-Cole says the next version of TaxiPark will include cool new features like GPS tracking and proximity alerts.
