MiTaxi is a mobile application created to ensure the safety of passengers boarding Taxis in Colombia. It is an ongoing issue in many 3rd world countries where one's well-being when boarding a taxi is a large concern.
Whether you are a local or a tourist, everyone is at risk of getting mugged, kidnapped or even beaten and raped when taking a taxi from an unknown provider.
With the simple scan of a QR code (only on trusted taxi company cabs), you can view the taxi's license plate number, driver information and ratings by other users.
There is also the option of sharing your location with friends/family via SMS, Facebook and Twitter; this way, if something were to happen everyone would know where you were last. In the case of an emergency, there is also a "911" button built into the app to further fortify your safety. With MiTaxi, every ride can be a safe ride.
