On Monday, Tambo Valley Cabs revealed it had teamed up with 13cabs in order to deliver a better resourced and service focused taxi service for the people of Lakes Entrance and its visitors.
Tambo Valley Cabs’ new partnership with 13cabs will see local taxis enhanced with distinctive 13cabs branding to provide customers with a more robust service offering a dedicated 24/7 contact centre, wheelchair access vehicles and a better way to book, track and pay for their next cab ride via the 13cabs app.
“As we continue to see year-on-year growth in East Gippsland for both its residential population and annual visitors, we also see heightened demand for more convenient and accessible transport specific to Lakes Entrance,” Eddie Fizyczak, who is the director of the Lakes Entrance fleet and an East Gippsland local, said.
“Working with 13cabs, Australia’s largest taxi network, will bring a better service to offer our Lakes Entrance customers with an easy-to-use booking system just in time for the busy holiday period.”
Greg Hardeman, general manager of 13cabs Victoria said: “At 13cabs we see working with Tambo Valley Cabs as another opportunity to bring equitable and accessible transport solutions to Australia’ s regionals areas. The 13cabs Lakes Entrance fleet will have the most up-to-date dispatch system currently available for drivers”.
“By growing 13cabs in region, locals and visitors of Lakes Entrance can now book taxis from their phones via the 13cabs app. The access to award winning technology and 13cabs’ support network will bring better transportation solutions to the Lakes Entrance community,” Hardeman said.
Lakes Entrance locals can access the new cab services by downloading the 13cabs app or by calling the new 24/7 contact centre. Passengers can also now book and pay for their rides on the app with the newly launched feature, Quick Ride with Apple Pay.
