Rail transportation is a quick and convenient way for passengers to commute, providing more opportunities for work, education and leisure.

Research, carried out by McKinsey & Company — a consulting firm — revealed that the use of public transport falls by a staggering 90 per cent when passengers are required to walk more than half a mile to the closest stop or station. Those who don’t have easy access to a train station, therefore, need additional modes of travel to reach their destination.

Our Cab4You service delivers a ‘first and last mile’ solution. It provides passengers with a vetted taxi service that will simplify journeys with transportation to and from rail stations. This means that train operating companies can help passengers easily access their rail services, wherever they’re located.

What we do

CMAC provides a convenient passenger solution that helps to increase the attractiveness and accessibility of public transport.

With Cab4You, passengers can book a vehicle to pick them up from home and drop them off at the departing train station. Once they reach the arrival station, a second vehicle will be waiting to take them on the final leg of the journey to the end destination.

Cab4You is available to your customers at the point of purchasing their train ticket, providing them with a simple way to plan their journey and the switch between road and rail.
