HITCH Driver Console is an application for taxi drivers that allows them to use Bermuda's first electronic taxi booking app putting drivers in direct contact with customers. HITCH Driver Console allows drivers to create an account, accept customer requests, and earn additional money from HITCH customers. When the HITCH Driver Console app is running, it will notify drivers when a booking is requested. Drivers will be able to accept the booking with one touch of a button. At the end of each ride HITCH will automatically bill the passenger’s credit card, tip included!
This application is only for licensed taxi drivers in Bermuda. In order to register you will need a valid Public Service Vehicle Licence, a current Taxi Licence, and a valid Bermuda bank account.
Should you wish you use HITCH to book a taxi, please download "HITCH" for customers which can be found in the App Store.

Customers and drivers will have the ability to rate each other for the ride.
