Perth cab drivers will be able to register to join the new Taxi Lineup courier service from today.
Taxi Lineup is an app-based courier service that has been operating in Sydney and Melbourne since the beginning of March.
Taxi Lineup founder Anthony Lechner said the service could be used in a number of ways.
“There’s a whole range of businesses in Perth that we can deliver too including legal firms, mining businesses, and building companies,” he said.
Taxi Lineup spokesman Ross McDonald said customers would be able to order deliveries after hours and on weekends and this set the company apart from other courier services.
“You have to book normal courier services by midday for them to pick it up by three o’clock to get delivered by five, but we can use delivery through taxis any time of the day or night,” Mr McDonald said.
