" TaxiBeat uses the mobile technology to connect taxi drivers and passengers in the same way that Google AdWords connects advertisers and Internet users: taxi drivers advertise their location and availability to nearby passengers who are searching for a taxi using their smartphone. If a passenger selects and calls a driver, then TaxiBeat gets a commission from the driver "
In a nutshell
Initially available on the iPhone, TaxiBeat will allow passengers to see the exact location of nearby taxis, to hail one with the touch of a button, and leave feedbackabout their experience with the driver. With the TaxiBeat iPhone app for drivers,any taxi driver will be able to join the TaxiBeat fleet and find customers while on the road. TaxiBeat lets individual cab drivers who have GPS-enabled smartphones advertise their location to the smartphone maps of its users.
