Continuing its attempt to match Uber, Beck Taxi has updated its app to support more of the features available in the popular ride sharing app.

Beck’s app, now at version 2.2.15, has added support for automatic payments. Like Uber’s own app, Beck Taxi’s mobile offering will now automatically charge a user’s credit card once their trip is complete.

Launched last May, the Beck Taxi app was created by the historic taxi brokerage to better align its service offerings with main competitor Uber. The company has also since added new decals to its fleet of cabs, advertising the availability of the app to the general public.

The features added in this update have yet to make their way Beck Taxi’s Android app.

This weekend, the United Taxi Workers Association, a group which recently formed and is home to some 2,500 local taxi drivers, plans to hold a strike to protest the slow speed at which the City of Toronto has implemented new laws to govern Uber and other ride-sharing services.

Download the Beck Taxi app from the iTunes App Store.

    You cannot call a Beck cab in the burbs. Uber works everywhere!

    Encouraging their drivers to NOT protest and coming out with an app to compete…better ideas than many in the taxi industry

    If Febreze sponsored the cabs I might consider using them again.

    Your about a couple years too late. Instead of sitting around thinking you guys had a service on lock you should have been working on an app. Now, Uber is hear to eat your lunch and the majority of the public is with them. Go ahead and strike this weekend cause your only going to make it worse for you.

    I’m baffled why the Taxis guys aren’t pissed at management that didn’t think t improving the service would be a priority and offering an phone app. Oh well

    Wow, Beck has finally started embracing new technologies! Too little too late for the archaic company in a soon-to-be obsolete industry, but good step nonetheless.

  • Awesome app, I hope so they given application are indeed wonderful to use and I Personally provide such kind of services for mobile application development.

    Darwin had it right. Some evolve to environment changes, and some like the Dodo bird got left behind.
