Watch Out for Davao's Homegrown Taxi App

Davao city is slowly becoming popular, not only in the Philippines, but all over the world. There are many beautiful places to visit in our city. Dabawenyos and Dabawenyas are known to be hospitable and disciplined. We also have the stinky yet absolutely delicious fruit (durian) in Davao. At the same time, the 2016 President-elect of the Philippines came from the city. In fact, Mayor Rodrigo Duterte (soon to be President Digong) has been known as the father of the Davao people. These are just some of the few reasons why our city has gained popularity. 

Indeed, there are so many things to love about Davao. Let's add one more thing on the list: the soon-to-be launched homegrown taxi app. This is the first in Davao city and you have to check it once it becomes available on Apple and Google store.

Taxi Link is the first-ever taxi application in Davao city! This all-new smartphone app has been developed by R.A. Hao Group of Companies as commissioned by Souther Maligaya Taxi. The said technology has been developed to improve the taxi company's service to the Filipino people. 

The app named "Taxilink" will give users access to the entire R.A Hao Group fleet which includes :
  • Orange Cab
  • Master Cab
  • Apple Cab
  • Pacific Cab
  • Bell Cab
  • Premier Cab
  • Visa Cab
  • SMTI
  • Mister Cab 
  • Misis Cab. 

In line with its founders vision "to provide the best quality of products and services every Filipino deserves", the fleet promises to deliver more secured, effective and convenient way through taxi bookings. The group also plans to bring more value to the customers through their app by providing a special duo which can offer a free ride in the first few months which are called Mister Cab and Misis Cab.

"Maligaya is one of the first and leading taxi operators in Davao, and were still committed to being the pioneers. Taxilink is just another example of how we are constantly evolving". This was the statement made by Martin Angelo Hao, the CEO of Souther Maligaya Taxi, Inc. during the press conference held last May 26, 2016 at Cafe Demitasse. 

Watch out for the official release of the application on Android and iOS phones this coming July 2016. The users can enjoy hassle-free booking with TaxiLink. One of the biggest advantages of the group is it's full control over the user experience as they own both app and the taxi units. This leaves the door for exciting innovations to roll out across both the app and the taxi experience in the months to come.
