taxi1QCOSTARICA – Getting a taxi in Costa Rica has been easier (no pun intended) with the Easy Taxi app, that now claims to have some 1.600 affiliated taxi operators.

The figure was released by Randy Cottin, regional manager for Easy Taxi in Costa Rica and Panama.

The company representative explained taxi drivers affiliated with the app can make an average of 7 more fares daily. “In the last three months we have doubled the number of fares through this service, for users and taxi drivers have seen the app as a safe tool” Cottin said.

The app is free to download for Android, iOS (Apple store), Windows Phone, Google Play and Firefox Marketplace.
