User-friendly taxi booking app debuts in Vietnam

Easy Taxi, the free largest taxi booking app in the world, is now available in Vietnam. With just the push of a button, users can quickly request the nearest taxi, and identify the driver’s location, name, phone number and car model so they can secure about feel who they will be travelling with. It also helps in the event that passengers need to locate belongings they have left behind.

Using the GPS function on smart phones, the app is now available on Adroid, iOS, Blackberry, and Windows operating systems. Currently available only in Ho Chi Minh City, it will soon be rolled-out to other major cities in Vietnam including Hanoi.

The Easy Taxi application also allows users to save their ‘rides history’, an activity log that enables users to check their previous locations.  A ‘favourites’ function enables users to key in their frequently visited or preferred location into the application.  These features allow users to quickly search for nearby taxi.

Starting in Brazil in 2012 and backed by Rocket Internet, the world’s largest Internet incubator, Easy Taxi app has garnered over 5 million downloads, registered over 100,000 taxi drivers worldwide, and completed millions of rides each month. It is available in more than 23 countries, 150 cities, and in 11 languages.
