HCM CITY (VNS) — People can book a taxi through the Malaysian mobile application GrabTaxi to travel to HCM City's Military 7 stadium to attend the K-Pop music festival today.
Those who hire a Mai Linh taxi will be refunded a maximum of VND200,000, or US$9.5, when they submit their bills at a stall in the stadium.
The mobile app, an award-winning idea at the Harvard Business School's 2011 Business Plan Contest, can be downloaded from the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store to smart phones and tablets with the iOS and Android operating systems.
GrabTaxi said that the company plans to conquer the Vietnamese market by signing contracts with local taxi companies after their success in Malaysia, Thailand and Singapore. — VNS
