Cabs make move to yellow

CAPRICORN Cabs has made a move for the better with improved service, quicker response and a better level of service.Chairman Ron Ware said Capricorn Cabs was no longer with Rockhampton dispatch and it was a move that would put smiles on Capricorn Coast community faces."We have moved to Yellow Cabs, which is going to offer much easier booking for everyone," Mr Ware said."The telephones will be answered a lot quicker by friendly and proven dispatch operators and taxis will get the messages a lot faster, which will enable them to respond more promptly."Mr Ware said as an added boost to the service, a text message would be sent when the taxi was within 300 metres of the destination for mobile users."On home lines, you will get a call to let you know the taxi is pulling up," Mr Ware said."Very soon we will also be accessing apps for iPhone and Android, along with web bookings to make life a little more convenient for everyone."Mr Ware said increased demand across the Capricorn Coast encouraged Capricorn Coast Cabs to seek methods to become more efficient in all areas of the service it provided."We are aware that people don't want to be waiting around for a taxi any longer than necessary so we sought the most efficient service we could find and Yellow Cabs offered this," Mr Ware said."We look forward to offering the community a better level of service and will continue to improve our facilities as new options become available."Mobile phone users can now phone 13 19 24 for faster answering.
