Surely one of the 300,000 taxis that partner with Click A Taxi will be available...In addition to the API, the company offers apps for iOS, Android, and Windows platform. By accessing your device's GPS, it can suggest a meeting place or take one from you and reserve a taxi with one of their local partnering taxi companies. Here's what the API methods support. In addition to using location information, it will suggest a taxi company based on availability and vehicle capacity, and complete the booking. Results are wrapped in a JSON callback function.
