First there was Green Cab in Madison Wisconsin, switching from a fleet of hybrids to all Tesla Model 3’s. Recently, Kelowna Cabs added a Long Range Model 3 to their fleet. Now the number of Tesla taxi’s is increasing again, this time with a new fleet of Tesla’s soon to be hitting the streets of Victoria, British Columbia.
Current Taxi, which started in Kelowna as British Columbia’s first all-electric taxi fleet,has been granted 15 licenses to operate in the Capital Regional District (CRD) and will be starting up their Tesla taxi service on December 1, 2019.
When Current Taxi first opened 2.5 years ago in Kelowna, they had just two vehicles. Since then, they have expanded to their current fleet of 10 Tesla vehicles, with plans to add 3 more soon. Their planned Victoria fleet will include several Model S, Model 3, and Model X vehicles.
Combining the convenience of ride sharing with the quality of a black car service, rides can be booked through their convenient mobile app up to 30 days in advance. From there you can select your pickup location, track your vehicle on its way to you, and then pay for your trip and rate your experience, all through the app.
The best part is that Current Taxi charges the exact same rates as a regular taxi, so you won’t be paying extra to ride in style while supporting sustainability.
Focused on their three values of sustainable practices, luxury services, and five star people, Current Taxi has set a new standard of taxi operation, as founder Dale Conway points out.
“We believe that it is our responsibility to do better than the current standard in the taxi industry for the environment, and for our customers.”
