In a bid to turn taxis green and help the streets of London breathe that little bit easier, the minicab marvels behind Wheely have released a fresh Android app that lets Londoners summon a stylish shuttle that not only saves the planet but saves money too…
According to the stats – which we can never get enough of – traditional diesel-powered black cabs cough out more than1kg of environmentally unfriendly CO2 on every journey they make, turning the air quality and your lungs as black as their paint jobs in the process. However, with Wheely that emission is reduced by a fragrant 40%, leaving you guilt-free to smoke a cigar in celebration afterwards. Probably.
What’s more, booking a Wheely through the firm’s new Android app entitles you to a fixed price upfront, use of the fleet’s free in-car Wi-Fi on your journey, and a fare that’s up to 40% cheaper than air-battering black cabs and up to 37.5% cheaper than controversial, bus-lane blocking, cyclist-safety unsympathetic Addison Lee.
Available to download from Google Play now, if you live in ‘that’ London or plan on heading into town, grab the app and go green.
