Getting Around Town With Taxi Magic!

I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Taxi Magic. I received a promotional code to facilitate my review and a promotional item to thank me for participating.

Hey All!

Being a born and raised New Yorker I have gotten into many taxis in the past. I spent most of my high school years in cabs. I used to street hail my cab. You know you’re in a New Yorker when you can hail a cab. Now-a-days having the family and living in Los Angeles we still take cabs, but not as often. We typically order taxis when we have company or are going out on a rare night on the town. No one likes to go out on not have a drink. You take a cab out so you can drink and eat what ever you’d like. Here in LA you have to call a service or attempt to hail a cab, which I don’t really enjoy as that is very difficult often times. That’s why I was thankful to discover the Taxi Magic app.

Taxi Magic takes the taxis you already know and use, and makes them better, faster, more reliable, and more convenient. Taxi Magic launched in 2009—LA was among the first Magic cities—and we currently partner with several local fleets, including LA Yellow Cab. With Taxi Magic you have access to more than 1,500 LA taxis in just a few taps of the finger—more than 46% of the city’s taxis!

Taxi Magic has improved service in LA, which means you are picked up 99.9% of the time and on your way in less than six minutes on average. Before Taxi Magic upgraded Los Angeles taxis, passengers got picked up 75% of the time. Taxi Magic is “Bringing Taxi Back” in Los Angeles to remind you why taxis are still the city’s favorite way to get a ride. All of their professional drivers are fully licensed, fully insured, and know their way around the city. With taxis there is no surge pricing and drivers undergo thorough professional background checks, so there are never any surprises when it comes to price or the person behind the wheel. Most people in LA still get taxis the old-fashioned way, but also with Taxi Magic not only do you not have to worry about parking once you arrive, but you also get to skip the uncertainty of street hailing and telephone dispatch.

You can download Taxi Magic for free on Android and iOS.


The app is very easy to download and set up.


Once you have downloaded the app it asks you to set your current location and create an account.


You can then set up how to pay for the Taxi Magic rides you take. You can learn how to set up the payment here:

That’s it you’re done and you’re ready to order your cab. We used this app when my bridesmaids were in town for our wedding. We used it to go on my bachelorette party in Downtown LA. It was great to be able to go out with my girlfriends to celebrate my soon to be big day and not have to worry about driving or finding or calling a cab service.


Using an app quickly on your phone is not only convenient, it’s beyond easy. It also helps that the service moves very quick. You order a cab and it’s at your feet in a snap.

I highly recommend trying out Taxi Magic if you’re in the Los Angeles area.
