LIVE TRACKING – shows your assigned Delta Taxi homing in to collect you.
FARE ESTIMATES – after entering pick-up and destination details, click ESTIMATE FARE for an approximation of the journey price (please note this is a guide only and not a quotation)

What's New in Version 2.1.6
- Minor colour change on street search results.
Does the job but a few bugs
I have my home address as a favourite but I don't want them waiting outside my house so I need to put a message. The remark box cannot be filled in when using a favourite pickup so squeeze it into the address box & some of the more moronic drivers don't understand and ignore it. The other option is write my favourite out every time, which I don't have time for.
The pickup pin in the map is about half a mile away from where I actually am so taxis are hailed within the vicinity of the pin rather than me.
The "problem creating booking - pickup area busy" message is annoying. You have to roll the time forward 5 mins, try again, then add 5 mins, then try again and continue until you reach a time that won't be busy. Surely there is an easier way of doing this? The app could just tell you a time instead of you doing trial and error.
In the time of Uber it would be good to make the app sleeker. You put your prices up by 10% a year ago (2016) but not invested it in the app as this has been the same for years. It's good for a local firm but could be better.
I only use Delta as backup firm now as Uber is cheaper & cars are cleaner, although Uber drivers are more likely to not speak English or know their way round than Delta drivers. Delta is generally quicker & more reliable too as Uber have price surges when demand is high so I just use Delta instead.
Quick service as always using app.
Delta is Best in the North West, England.
Delta Taxis gives the best taxi service in the North West, England.
But this App is Bad!
I recommend that they need to renew this out-dated looking app.
UBER taxi service here is bad, but there app looks and works much better then this one.
Sort ya App out Delta,
Making you look outdated!
