The Beck Taxi app is the fastest and easiest way to get a Beck Taxi in Toronto without having to call Beck directly. Simply use the GPS on your iPhone, pick the address and time you wish to be picked up at, press send and the taxi will come right to you. Now you don’t need to stop what you are doing to call a cab – you can use the Beck Taxi app to order a cab up to one month in advance!

Performance updates and bug fixes.
Much Improved But Still Inadequate
This app is much improved but it is still inferior to Uber's app. I tried it last night, my experience was (1) Prior to ordering there is no indication as to how long the wait will be or where the nearest taxi is (2) After ordering, the cab does not appear on the map, so you are still in the dark as to your wait time. (3) Upon arrival at your destination, you can't just jump out of the cab, you have to wait for the driver to finalize the transaction and then go back into the app to aprove it. (Neither the Beck driver nor myself knew this, and Beck dispatch had to call me to sort out payment well after the driver had left.) When I use UberTAXI it's usually Beck who shows up, and the Uber app experience is superior to using Beck's own app.
worst service ever
worst service ever i will never use beck taxi again girlfriend and i were in downtown driver agreed to take her first home and then me we only live 5 min drive apart from each other. we agreed for 50 dollars he said ok. as soon as he dropped of my girlfriend at home we started driving to my house and at once cab driver stops the car and tells me that i have to pay him extra 20 dollars. i told him no as he replied i will not move the car unless you pay me extra 20 dollars it came to the point that i had to call the police 911 and told him what happen and it was 2:30am i really didn't want to walk didn't fee safe so the police came and took taxi cabs information and they took me home
WORST service ever
Waste of time
I tried using the app once and it told me the closest car was 17 minutes away. I canceled and called Beck directly, and a car arrived 2 minutes later. Seems like a basic requirement for a taxi app - get me the closest car. The app should not have been released if it can't do that.
