In what's believed to be a world first 13CABS Taxi Booker application enables users to book cabs from within Facebook allowing them to stay connected with their friends at the same time.

'13CABS is looking for new ways to offer passengers an improved service and 13CABS Taxi Booker for Facebook means users can continue to chat with their friends while they make bookings,' said 13CABS Chief Operating Officer Andrew Skelton.

13CABS Taxi Booker for Facebook arrives just as the Spring Racing Carnival kicks off and users of the application can make their race plans and then book a cab right away using the application for peace of mind.

The application includes 13CABS' Fare Estimator and allows users to access their booking history to view the details of a trip.

The launch of 13CABS Taxi Booker application follows the success of their iPhone app featuring TaxiTracker and is also a free service anyone can use and establishes 13CABS' credentials as Melbourne's most innovative Cab company.

13CABS continues to lead the Cab industry with the launch of its Facebook application called 13CABS Taxi Booker. Facebook is one of the world's largest social networking sites with over 500 million registered users worldwide and presents an opportunity for businesses to take advantage of its popularity by developing third party applications.

The planned roll out of 13CABS smartphone Apps for Blackberry, Android and Windows Phone 7 in the coming months will simplify the booking process for more Melburnians and ensure 13CABS remains top of mind for passengers.
