Getting a taxi in Oxford, or the surrounding towns and villages of Wallingford, Newbury, Didcot, Abingdon or Wantage, has just gone really hi-tech. Go Green Taxis is a cab service that can claim to be the most environmentally-friendly taxi company in the entire UK.

An app is available from the Google Play Store or the iTunes Apple store, and it is the quickest way to get a cab right to your current location quickly and cheaply. Your smartphone detects your current location within the app and all you need do is to click on the geolocation marker to have your cab pick you up right from the chosen spot.
This is handy if you find yourself out on a night out and are not certain of your actual location. Go Green Taxis are inexpensive and also offer airport transfer services, hire services (like prom bash, weddings and business meetings) and also provides executive services for the high-powered business community.
Oxford is one of those cities where there is so much to do and some great places to see. It is well known across the world as a university city. And like its sister city of Cambridge, it is possible to punt down the iconic waterways and canals gracing the fine spectacles and witnessing magnificent architecture.
There is the University Museum, Ashmolean Museum of Art and Archaeology, Pitt Rivers Museum and the famous “house” of Christ Church College (where teams have regularly excelled in the television quiz program, University Challenge).
Radcliffe Square in Oxford is a place where many students hang out and you are within a short walk from some iconic university sights: the Bodleian Library (which dates back to around 1460), St. Mary’s, Divinity School and the University Church of the Virgin St. Mary.
In fact, St. Mary’s is open to the public and you can clamber atop this tower and look over at Oxford’s fascinating views, spires and university campuses (some dating back over 600 years). Getting around all these fascinating places requires a knowledge of the city – and it is the services of Go Green Taxis which can transport all around this world-famous place and beyond, they are trustworthy Oxford taxis and so a great choice.
