Wearside app developer assist-Mi has joined force with black cab app Gett to offer a new level of accessibility to disabled people.

Users will have access to priority booking and waiting times of less than five minutes and instant email receipts, offering disabled passengers a fully inclusive and accessible service, which will soon be rolled out across the UK.

Dom Hyams, communications & digital director of assist-Mi said: “I have been working in central London and using black cabs every day for many years as the public transport network can’t quite accommodate me in my wheelchair.

“I’m over the moon we have now teamed up with Gett, so many more people can realise how accommodating black cabs can be.”
