uberTAXI In Honolulu – Taxi Without The Hassle

The end of the year is near and the future of taxi is here.  We’re excited to announce the launch of uberTAXI in Honolulu!  We’ve partnered up with the top taxis in the city. Live and available now, just in time for the last big night of the year, right from within your Uber app.

Think you’ll be giving uberTAXI a try? Here are some things to keep in mind:

Drivers will continue to use the meter in their vehicle.  At the end of your trip, they’ll enter the metered fare into the iPhone with the Uber driver app and your card will get charged the metered fare amount.  After the fare is entered, a $1 booking fee will be added.

Tip is set at 20% by default.  You can change this setting at https://clients.uber.com. Log in and click on “Payment”.  You’ll see at the bottom that you can adjust your tip preference.

uberTAXILive vehicle location and arrival notification will not only save you time, but will bring you peace of mind that a vehicle is on its way.

Cashless transactions means not having to worry about having cash on hand or wondering whether your credit card will be accepted or frowned upon. No cash should ever change hands!

Accountability is ongoing. We not only interview drivers in person, but your ratings will help us separate the diamonds from the rough over time. There are some amazing taxi drivers in Honolulu. Now they’ll finally be rewarded for their skill and professionalism.

If you have any more questions, comments, or just want to high-five us, you can always reach us at supporthonolulu@uber.com
