-- Beepbeep.ie has decided to launch a free 'Tweeting Taxi' service in the capital, which will allow users to book a cab on Facebook or Twitter every Friday, beginning this week for the next two months. The service is available on a first come, first served basis and the taxi can be booked from 4-9pm, starting from Friday 10th June until 29th July 2011.
Suzanne Sheridan, Beepbeep.ie’
s press officer says “The reason we’re putting together our social media campaign is that it’s something that hasn’t been done before – it’s Ireland’s first free taxi. 4pm on Friday is often the time when we're on Facebook or Twitter, deciding what we’re doing for the evening with our friends, so it’s a nice way to start the weekend to get a free taxi to wherever you’re going in the city centre.”
There has been a huge increase in the numbers of people booking services through online and through social media, which helped inspire the idea. Beepbeep.ie is typically known as a used car website but has recently begun a focused social media strategy. The launch of the Tweeting Taxi highlights their innovation in this new direction and will also please many taxi users surely.
