Abellio Greater Anglia rolls out new Cab and Go service to more stations
Abellio Greater Anglia’s pioneering new ‘Cab and Go’ taxi booking service is to be extended to more stations after a successful pilot phase.
Cab and Go is the train operator’s new, free app and website which lets rail passengers book a taxi to or from the station, providing a fast, simple way of arranging transport and the confidence that onward travel from the station is ready and waiting.
After a successful introduction at Bury St Edmunds, Chelmsford, Colchester, Ely, Ingatestone and Norwich stations, the service will be rolled out to 42 more rail stations from Monday 3rd March 2014.
As an introductory offer, Abellio Greater Anglia will give £5 off ‘first time ‘bookings, in the form of a refund once the customer completes a feedback survey.
From Monday, Cab and Go will be available at the following 48 stations: Angel Road, Audley End, Beccles, Brentwood, Brimsdown, Broxbourne, Bruce Grove, Bury St Edmunds, Bush Hill Park, Chelmsford, Chingford, Colchester, Colchester Town, Cromer, Diss, Dovercourt, Edmonton Green, Elsenham, Ely, Enfield Town, Great Chesterford, Harwich International, Harwich Town, Highams Park, Hythe, Ingatestone, March, Newport, Northumberland Park, North Walsham, Norwich, Ponders End , Roughton Road, Rye House, Sawbridgeworth, Shelford, Shenfield, Silver Street, Southbury, Stansted Airport, Stansted Mountfichet, Sudbury, Thetford, Tottenham Hale, Turkey Street , Waltham Cross, White Hart Lane and Whittlesford Parkway.
Abellio Greater Anglia’s Commercal Director, Andrew Camp, said, “The new service is a further step in making rail travel even more convenient for our customers. It will be a useful tool that will provide extra confidence, and more options, for those travelling on business or visiting unfamiliar areas. Passengers can quickly and easily use the app from wherever they are to organise a cab to take them to or from the station with no hassle.”
The new Cab & Go service is delivered in partnership with Cabline UK Ltd and T Dispatch Ltd.
