Over the next month we will be working with local company Text a Cab, trialing their service.

Our involvement with Text a Cab will mean that you can text your booking through to our dispatch office. The concept is simple - just text TAXI TIMARU to 4474 followed by your pick up address and the number of people travelling.

Once your request has been received you will receive a text confirmation.

For more information on how the system works, please visit www.textacab.co.nz!

Due to technical difficulties with our phones during the early hours of Sunday 31th July, we were unable to receive calls from a large number of the public. We would like to extend our apologies to anyone who was unable to contact us to order a taxi. This matter has since been resolved and we are working tirelessly to prevent a reoccurrence of this event.

As we all continue to enjoy the busy sporting season we would like to kindly remind our passengers that alcohol of any kind is not permitted in our taxis and must be carried in the boot of the car. Anyone with an open container will be asked to properly dispose of it before entering the taxi.

We appreciate your patronage and your co-operation.
