Raise Your Holiday GPA: Make Your Last Call #TAXI on Your Mobile

Enter to win $520 in taxi rides ($10 a weekend for a year)

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Nov. 20, 2009) - If visions of holiday parties – not sugarplums - are running through your head, #TAXI ("Pound Taxi") can't help with a hangover cure. It can, however, prevent you from becoming another holiday drunk driving statistic.

With a drunk driving death occurring in North America approximately every 45 minutes, CellWand Communications Inc., a leading provider of mobile on-demand services for mobile phone users, creator of #TAXI(R) (#8-2-9-4) and a national sponsor of Mothers Against Drunk Drivers (MADD), is making an offer they hope you can't refuse.

"Our holiday wish is for that the last call after "last call" is to #TAXI (#8-2-9-4) on a mobile phone," says Nick Quain, CellWand's CEO. "Available on almost all major wireless carriers, it will connect to the first open dispatch at a local taxi company. It's the best gift you can give yourself, your friends and your family.

"We'll even throw in an incentive. Go to www.poundtaxi.com and enter to win $520 in taxi vouchers. You can party all year long, but just do it safely."

#TAXI connects callers to the first available taxi company or their preferred one while avoiding busy signals during peak times to make hailing a cab fast and easy across North America. It's available for $1.25 to $1.79 per call, depending on the wireless carrier and takes no money from taxi companies.
