A leading NSW taxi company has launched a new app designed to translate the indecipherable mumbles of drivers who are too busy talking on the phone and yelling at other cars to be able to communicate clearly with passengers.
A spokesperson, who dubbed the app “Uber slayer”, said it was a move that would benefit both drivers and passengers.
“Being a taxi driver is boring, so they need to be on the phone to friends or adult hotlines at all times just to stay sane – but it’s also essential that drivers are able to ask passengers for directions, or no one will ever get where they need to go,” he said. “With this app, drivers can do both.”
The new app is the second innovation the taxi company has rolled out this month, coming just weeks after the announcement of the new card skimming insurance fee.
