Taxiloc is a real time taxi ordering service.
After verifying your order, TAXILOC sends it to our member taxis closest to you and sends you a free response in less than three (3) minutes confirming:
- the colour, 
- the make, 
- the model, 
- the registration plate, 
- and the travel time of the first taxi to accept your order.

If all of the nearby taxis signed up to our service are unavailable, TAXILOC will offer to connect you to a local taxi booth (cost of a local landline call in Paris and the greater Paris area, excluding operator charges). A taxi driver at the booth will answer your call. Please provide him with the exact pick-up address.

To use Taxiloc on your iPhone you must have version 5.0.1 and:
- a GPRS data connection or WiFi activation enabling you to transmit your geolocation details.

A three (3) minute countdown will be displayed in the bottom right-hand corner of the screen. You will be updated regularly about your order’s progress.

5) Confirmation a taxi is en route or connection to a taxi booth.
You will be sent details on your taxi so you can recognize it as well as its optimized travel time, according to traffic information. If not, TAXILOC will offer:
to retry your order
to connect you to a taxi booth.

If you choose to be connected to one or more taxi booths, TAXILOC will display your location in Google maps and indicate where the closest booths are and their distance as the crow flies. By clicking on each taxi booth you will be connected to them, in turn, by telephone.
