Local transportation just got easier for the BestWeekends traveler. No longer do we have to extend our thumbs to hail a cab, but instead extend our thumbs to the screens of our smartphones…

A free travel app hit the charts and it has many people talking; Taxi Magic is the latest way to order a cab ride anywhere at any time (very handy when visiting unexplored territory).  It has won recent top app awards from CNET, Wired, Business Insider, and SFWeekly.

According to the creators, “Taxi Magic is revolutionizing the taxi industry with the first online taxi booking service directly integrated to taxi dispatch systems, so no phone call is needed.”

Features include:
            Finding taxis using location services
            Booking taxis
            Tracking the arrival of taxis using dispatch updates and map view
            Charging the ride to a credit card
            Expensing the trip with an e-receipt

Taxi Magic has taxi-booking services for 75 leading taxi fleets in over 40 major U.S. and tap-to-call services in over 4,000 across the U.S., Canada, and Mexico. Check out more here.
