Gone with the meter: ingogo introduces fixed fares and revolutionises taxi booking
Native taxi payments innovator, ingogo, recently announced a bold Australian first: it’s doing away with traditional metered fares and has shifted its much lauded bookings and payment platform to offer fixed fare bookings. From next week, customers will no longer need to worry about how much a fare will cost when they get in the cab.

Foreign-owned taxi app Uber has dominated headlines after a series of scandals and legal woes, but many lesser-known Australian smartphone applications may offer better services and more consumer protections.
Popular startups GoCatch and Ingogo are legal and locally owned, they employ a combined total of more than 70 Australian workers, keep their profits on-shore, and have been endorsed by multiple state governments.
