This Manchester taxi firm is revolutionising bookings with the help of Facebook Messenger

Did you know you can now book a taxi using Facebook’s Messenger app

Manchester taxi firm Street Cars are leading the way in the city with a new bot that helps you easily book your next taxi – all in under 30 seconds. 

One of the first firms to use the new tech, the bot processes your booking immediately and uses your location information to show your driver where to meet you.

Incorporating artificial intelligence and the latest technology, it suggests places for your pick up – making booking a cab in Manchester easier than ever. 

A fully integrated, automated system talks to the bot on Facebook and orders your taxi right away. Within seconds of messaging, you’ll get a reply informing you of the status of your pick up. No mess, no fuss. 

And unlike when you book with Uber, there’s no need to register first. Simply open the app and send a message to let them know where you want picking up and when.

You can pay on your card too, so there’s no need to worry if you haven’t got any cash on you.  

You can also pay in their app – which actually works out cheaper than rival Uber, thanks to the 20% discount they give you for downloading.  

The future of booking taxis is here – and we like it a lot. Why not give it a go?
