Oct 29, 2014 Gett involved in Shriek Week - you’re all invited Posted in BLOG, Gett, News, Social, by GetTaxi team

A horrible hello to all of you grizzly ghouls today… can you sense a theme coming on?

Gett welcomes you with boney open arms to Shriek Week.

We’ve got a lot of fun stuff lined up for you as Halloween edges ever closer but we don’t want to spoil the surprises just yet (muhaha). Prepare for the worst and head over to Twitter to stay on top of all of our spine-tingling updates.

Here’s a little taster of what’s in-store for you…

Wheel of Doom – Try your luck in the Wheel of Doom… will you get trick or treat?
Killer competition – Got a photo in your spooktacular Halloween gear? Share it with us on Twitter and the best outfit wins Gett bucks

We hope we haven’t tortured you too much – the best is yet to come.

And remember to stay safe in Manhattan this Halloween. Don’t Gett caught out waiting for a ghost train or hanging around on the sidewalk where the monsters lurk. We think $10 is a bargain for that…

We’re just dying to see you this weekend.

Happy Halloween.

Oct 15, 2014 We’re doubling driver pay. Permanently. Posted in BLOG, Driver, by GetTaxi team

Today we’re super excited to announce our new driver pay. We’ll be paying drivers double what our competitors are paying and on top all our valued drivers get 100% of tips. Gett drivers who work 50 hours a week can earn $100,000 a year, and upwards of $110,000 including tip, a significantly higher median income than our competitors’ claim. We only works with legal licensed drivers affiliated with its partner fleets.


Our drivers earn an additional $500 when they complete their first 20 jobs, and an additional $500 for every driver they recruit to work with us.  Additionally, we also offer all our drivers a customer training course, tablet and data – all free.


We’ve experienced unprecedented demand following the launch of our “$10 Anywhere” promotion in early September where all rides throughout Manhattan cost just $10 for consumers, regardless of distance, traffic or time, until the end of 2014.


Drivers interested in joining Gett should visit www.gett.com/drivers or call us on 1-855-200-4388
