If you’re looking for a taxi in London, check out Tick Tock Taxi, the new taxi booking site recently launched by our friends at mochii.

Instant Fare Quote

Enter the address you’re at and where you want to go and the site gives you an instant quote for a mini-cab. Booking is easy, just enter your name and phone number.

Behind the scenes, there’s a database of cab companies, the nearest of which is notified and will contact you within minutes. It’s a simple and painless way to find the cost and book your taxi. There’s a mobile version under development, too.

Fun Project

We did the web programming for the site using Django. It integrates with Google Maps for the address lookups (geocoding) and to find the distance by road for the fare calculation (using Google Maps directions). It uses an SMS gateway to send text messages to customers and taxi companies.

Tick Tock Taxi was conceived by mochii who also provided the design work. They called us in to do the web development side and we’re happy to be involved.
