What you need to know about the Silver Top app -
Quick Hail for one touch bookings
Need a taxi, like right now? Open the app, tap on the Quick Hail button to place a booking at your GPS location – DONE! Gotta love an app that makes Mum life easy peasy.
100% of payment goes to drivers
There’s nothing better than having a good old gasbag with your taxi driver. By the end of the ride, you feel like pals. Which is why it’s heartbreaking to find out that there are some companies (not naming names), that don’t value their drivers and take a huge chunk of their earnings. Say whaaat? You know who doesn’t stooge them over? Silver Top Taxis, that’s who. 100% of payment goes to your driver pal.
In-app Payment: Credit Card, debit card & PayPal
If you’ve got older kids that think you’re their personal taxi service, this nifty feature will save you. With this app your kids can hail a cab without physically waving your card around. Keep your deets safe and pay for your trip with the in-app payment by registering your credit card, debit card or PayPal account. Learn how to set it up by watching this vid - ‘Pay with Paypal in Silver Top Taxis.’
Live GPS Tracking & location sharing
Remember when your kids were little and you’d watch the baby monitor all the time? You’re never going to stop worrying, no matter how big they are. Which is why it’s great that you can keep a close eye on your kids in the taxi by watching their entire trip on your phone with GPS tracking and location sharing. Or if you’ve let the mum-bun down and had night out, feel safe by sending a tracking link to friends or fam. You can even set up an emergency contact person in the app.
Love local? Silver Top Taxis are a family-run service that have been around for yonks (1936 to be exact). It’s both locally owned and operated. As more overseas-owned rideshare services pop up, it’s important that we do what Melbournians do best – support local. Community is super important to Silver Top Taxis, which is why they love to support local teams (like Coburg Football Club). It’s a great feeling to know that each ride is giving back to local people.
