FREENOW claimed as Ireland’s No. 1 taxi app is to partner with local firm Sevens Taxis the 24/7 ‘phone operator taxi service based in Kilkenny.

Boast is that the pair will combine their transport offerings with the aim of delivering an enhanced service in the region.

The proud owners say that the partnership between Sevens Taxis and FREENOW will result in the largest taxi fleet available in County Kilkenny with a combined driver base of over 100 men and women. 

Existing Sevens Taxis passengers will now have the option of booking a taxi directly via the FREENOW app, in addition to the Sevens Taxis ‘phone line. 

Through the app passengers will have access to a range of services including pre-bookings via the ‘pre-book’ option, 6/7/8-seater van taxis, wheelchair-accessible vehicles, EV vehicles and can pay via Apple Pay, Google Pay, PayPal, Debit Card or cash.

Sevens Taxis was established in 2007 by Eddie and Emer Fenlon.

Eddie Fenlon, co-owner of Sevens Taxis told Kilkenny Press:From humble beginnings as a family-run enterprise, we have grown into a high-performing taxi operator with an excellent fleet of drivers.

“This partnership will benefit our regular and future passengers with greater vehicle access and new booking options, especially during peak hours. 

“We are excited about joining forces with national and innovative taxi provider FREENOW that is committed to delivering quality passenger and driver experiences, and we look forward to delivering an even better service together.”

Charlie Gleeson, General Manager FREENOW Ireland said the partnership marked an important milestone for FREENOW, as it combined its existing app technology, mobility offering and driver partners with the quality service and excellent driver fleet established by Sevens Taxis.
