Re: Just a question

The taxi company I usually use does already.

It has an app, but also when you call for a cab, you get texts with the driver name and car reg, and another informing you of the fixed price for the journey. If you don’t want to use an app then there is a link to a website showing you where the car is.

I therefore know how much, and what car to look for before they get to my door (or where I am being picked up from.
