Use MyTeksi mobile booking app for safer rides [New Straits Time (Malaysia)]
(New Straits Time (Malaysia) Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) I REFER to the letter "I was nearly abducted in taxi" (NST, Oct 10).
MyTeksi would like to express its deepest sympathies to the victim who had to go through such a traumatic experience.
We have heard of many such cases and would like to encourage all Malaysians to use our mobile taxi booking application to ensure greater security for their taxi rides.
The MyTeksi app allows one to hail a taxi from anywhere, at anytime.
The app will also provide the driver's details, phone number and licence plate number, which can be shared with loved ones using the app's "Share My Ride" feature.
This feature allows their family and friends to track the taxi's journey in real time.
MyTeksi places emphasis on safety, and on that premise, we cary out a strict screening process of our taxi drivers before including them in our fleet.
We encourage passengers, both female and male, to take their safety very seriously.
Lone travellers must be especially wary.
Take the victim's story seriously and help us to further transform public transportation into a safer, dependable and reliable method of travelling for everyone.
