Taxi Taxi Launches as North Carolina’s First Hybrid Transportation Service in Greater Raleigh

New Taxi Company Transforms Options for Riders in Capital City with Brand-New Hybrid Car Fleet, Smartphone App, Cameras, Rear Credit Card Machines

Raleigh, NC, May 01, 2013 --( Taxi Taxi of Raleigh (, the first state-of-the-art green transportation service in the Triangle, has announced the launch of its unique fleet of vehicles to serve North Carolina’s capital city and nearby communities, making it the state’s first hybrid taxi service. The vehicles will take to the streets on May 6, bringing another voice to the growing green and sustainability industry in Raleigh. With a focus on efficiency and customer service, Taxi Taxi will provide Triangle customers with the same taxi experience they expect from a large metropolitan city and meet the increasing needs of one of the fastest-growing regions in the United States.

Among Taxi Taxi’s revolutionary features is Taxi Magic, a smartphone app which utilizes a call center to notify when and where a customer needs a vehicle. If desired, riders can track the taxi that is coming to pick them up and follow its progress before arrival. All Taxi Taxi vehicles, which are brand new Toyota Prius hybrid cars and Sienna vans, are equipped with cameras on board for the safety of drivers and their passengers and provide rear credit card machines that allow passengers to easily pay and evenly split cost if desired. The result is a much more convenient, clean, reliable and secure taxi ride than the traditional local taxi service.

“Taxi Taxi puts Raleigh on the cutting edge in incorporating the latest environmental and technological innovations into taxi service,” said Fred Platt, general manager of Taxi Taxi of Raleigh. “We are excited to provide these elements which area residents and visitors already incorporate in other aspects of their daily lives and have wanted to see in place in local taxis as well.”
