There is no cost to the passenger.The app can be used to hail or book a taxi. Drivers using it can accept cash, credit/debit card payments, and there is a facility to set up corporate accounts.Charities aren’t the only beneficiaries. A loyalty scheme is built into the system: passengers can benefit from ‘cab miles’ and drivers benefit from earning cash rewards.Each charity that is associated with CabGo has their own unique promo code. When passengers choose a particular charity, CabGo will donate 10p each and every time a booking is made through the app and completed.The Liverpool-based company has already partnered with 12 local charities including Alder Hey, Nugent Care, Toxteh Fire Fit Hub, and of course the Liverpool Taxi Drivers Children in Care Outing Fund. A company spokesperson told UK Fundraising:“We will be working with a set number of local and national charities”.It launched in Liverpool and is expanding to cover Salford, Chester, Wirral, St Helens, Warrington, Runcorn and Widnes.
