Heart of Midlothian FC is pleased to announce a new partnership with Gorgie-based taxi company Capital Cars, which will provide a priority service to fans and bring in vital income to the club as the Revival continues.
Included in a range of offers for Jambos is fixed-price tariffs for all Championship away games. Competitive set fares mean that fans travelling together can enjoy door-to-door service for away games for a fraction more than the train fare.
Capital Cars will also donate a portion of the metered fare (up to 20% depending on destination) when telephone bookings are made quoting “Hearts 1874”.
In keeping with Hearts’ promise to build in innovation to its new operation, especially given the IT background of the new off-field management team, a new smart phone app has also been launched to give fans the ability to book and track their taxi online.
The app, which is available for iPhones and Android devices, alerts Capital Cars to each booker’s location and shows where the nearest taxis are to pick them up. It will also send details of the taxi and estimated arrival time.
“It’s a great service for fans,” said Director of Football, Craig Levein. “It will make the whole match day experience more enjoyable.
"Fans can relax, leave the car at home and be assured that they’ll get to the game in style. Not only that, they’ll know the club is benefiting financially every time they travel.”
