Download the "A#1 Cab: Taxi Booking" in your App store now
A#1 Cab Dispatch has launched "A#1 Cab- Taxi Booking" APP in 2014. It can be downloaded in the Google Play Store or the iPhone APP Store. We have included QR codes in the button link below.
This unique taxi APP provides the customer with real-time digital ordering of an A#1 Cab. The customer can view the driver in route, and who the drivers is.. Once you sign up, it's quick, efficient, and worry free. We do not take your credit card information through the app ever, that way your credit card won't ever get hacked!
Customers will still pay the driver for the ride, the APP will not do that for you. You may pay by cash, credit or debit. Specify how you would like to pay on the APP under "attributes".
All pick ups are digitally dispatched automatically to the closest available taxi with your needs closest to you.
There will be no need to call dispatch to order a taxi anymore, but optional. We have dispatchers on duty 24 hours a day.
Only customers in our 70 town service area will be able to order a taxi via our smartphone app. The APP will not support other communities we do not currently service. The taxi orders will be automatically cancelled out if the pickup is not in our service area. Please check the "service area" page for the current towns/cities we service.
We do not have taxis "just sitting" at O'Hare Airport, airport orders must have at least a ONE hour advance notice.
Unlike other "Ride APP" providers, all vehicles contracted with A#1 Cab Dispatch are commercially insured and bonded to the State of Illinois commercial insurance standards. Which really means, the taxis have proper commercial vehicle insurance at ALL times.
*There was an app update April 2016.
