Chiamataxi 060609 The telephone number 060609 and the ChiamaTaxi (Calling a Taxi) app are the two services of Roma Servizi per la Mobilità to call the nearest taxi, saving time and money. The service is made possible thanks to the resources made available by Roma Capitale and the Ministry of the Environment in the context of sustainable mobility policies.
ChiamaTaxi 060609 puts the customer in direct contact with an operator, if there are no cars available at the taxicab stand. Taxi drivers who have joined the initiative have a dedicated tablet/smartphone application to answer the customer directly from their own car.
The telephone number 060609
By calling 060609, the user is asked to speak clearly the street address where he is. Through Automatic Speech Recognition, the system directs the call to the nearest column where a taxi driver responds and confirms his arrival: in the case of temporary absence of the operator from the taxi callbox (after two attempts), the system directs the customer to the second nearest callbox, otherwise the call is "forwarded" directly by the system to the nearest taxi that will be able to estimate the time of arrival. The wait time will be shorter, as will the amount on the meter when you enter the taxi.
App for Android and iOS
The ChiamaTaxi app can be downloaded on smartphones and tablets:
The new ChiamaTaxi app reduces both waiting times and the cost of service. The customer calls the taxi from his smartphone or tablet, communicates his position via touchscreen, or GPS with voice recognition, and speaks immediately with the nearest taxi, who will be able to estimate the time of arrival as well as the wait time.
Authorized taxi cabs in Rome are white and have the word TAXI on the roof; the front doors bear the symbol of Roma Capitale and taxi license number, which is also located inside the car on the left rear door.
Before starting the journey, make sure the meter is turned on (located on the dashboard or at the top of the windscreen). Should it is not switched on, ask the driver to do so. Always ask for a receipt of payment.
