The greener and cheaper way to travel to and from the airport
How it works for airport passengers
With GreenCab you can book a taxi to or from an airport in just a few taps of your smartphone to post details of your journey.
Approved taxi companies who are able to fulfil your requirements bid on your journey with their best price and you choose which offer to accept.
Once a bid has been accepted you pay for the journey and contact is established with the taxi driver to finalise details of the pick-up.
By using a taxi that would otherwise be empty you’re helping to do your bit for the environment by reducing the number of total taxi journeys.Download the app
How it works for taxi companies
As a taxi driver you often only have passengers booked for the journey to or from an airport, leaving an empty vehicle for the return leg.
Using our app you can get additional bookings from people looking for a taxi to or from an airport, providing you with passengers for both legs of the journey.
Prospective passengers post details of their journey using the app and taxi drivers bid a price in order to win the business.
The key to winning the job for the empty leg of a journey is to bid a price that is lower than a customer would typically pay, otherwise they have less incentive to use the app and you could lose the business.
If a customer posted a job to go from their home in the Peak District to Manchester Airport, which would typically cost £70, the ideal bid to win the business would be £40-50.
At this price, the customer gets a great deal and you get additional income for what would have been dead mileage. The profit element of the one-way journey to or from the airport has already been factored in, so this additional revenue is virtually all profit.Become an approved taxi company

A greener way to travel
Have you ever wonder what happens to a booked taxi for an airport transfer? **98% of the time it travels unoccupied on one leg of it’s journey. With the Green Cab App you take advantage of the wasted unoccupied leg of the journey by booking the same taxi.
A taxi that has an airport transfer could fill the empty leg of the journey with a new passenger who is either going or returning from the same airport.
Meaning the taxi driver could offer a reduced rate to fill the empty leg.
