Lynk taxi app launches across Dublin city today with €25 credit with every download

February 9th 2015: Lynk is launching across Dublin city today as Ireland’s first home-grown taxi app with €25 credit pre-loaded onto every new account, that’s €5 off the first 5 rides.

Developed by Global Taxi’s tech team, Lynk employs over 170 people in Ireland through its 24 hour customer service team and administration. Lynk kicks off with 2500 drivers on the fleet, making it the largest taxi firm in the country.

Founder, Managing Director of Lynk and Dublin native, Noel Ebbs commented ‘We are very proud to be able to launch our Lynk app in Dublin today. Our goal when we created this app was to deliver a reliable, friendly, Irish service for all of our customers. Run by Irish people, for communities and businesses in Dublin big or small.

When asked what sets Lynk apart from competing taxi apps, Noel Ebbs replied ‘Lynk aims to operate in the top end of the Taxi market all the while supporting Irish jobs and feeding back into the Irish economy. We believe that a taxi service is a community service, a local service. Our space in the market is very clear. It’s the domain of the legal, garda-vetted, professional driver that we all know and trust providing a service to the people of Dublin with drivers they know they can rely on.’

Further features of the app include the facility to make bookings in advance of any required journey and customers can make multiple bookings at the same time. Lynk will also automatically search for another driver in the event that the original driver has to cancel. Lynk’s experienced customer service team are available to take any queries 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, ensuring a secure arrival for all customers to their destination.

Lynk will be distributing €500,000 worth of credit vouchers and Lynk themed treats throughout the week across a number of locations in Dublin. Users will also have the chance to win competitions via social media using the hashtag #LoveLynk and coming just in time for Valentine’s Day!

Lynk is available for download through the App Store, Google Play or at www.lynk.ie.
