Stuck for a Great Holiday Gift Idea? Taxi On Demand Offers One Few Will Think of, but Everyone Can Use

CHATTANOOGA, TN--(Marketwire - November 24, 2009) - Shoppers looking for that unique holiday gift idea appealing to everyone from college students and business travelers to vacationers and the elderly will find a valuable ally in Taxi On Demand.

The innovative Chattanooga, Tenn.-based company offers pre-paid taxi cards that can be used to call and pay for a taxi 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The cards can be purchased in denominations of $35, $50, $100 or $200, and are accepted by thousands of cab companies nationwide.

"It's an opportunity this holiday season to give the certainty of a safe ride home in the days and months ahead," says Taxi On Demand President Dane Bradshaw. "You never know when an emergency might occur, or when it just won't be safe or convenient for someone you know to drive or walk to their destination."

Because they're only for use in taxis, Bradshaw says TOD users also consider the card as a money management tool -- knowing the funds haven't been used to purchase other products or services. "Parents of college students particularly like this feature," he says. "They're buying the certainty of a safe ride home for their kids, when it's needed most, and know that's exactly what the TOD card will provide."

Another benefit to the service is that card holders have a toll-free telephone number they can call to get connected with an area cab company. "As long as you have access to a phone, we can help you find a cab," Bradshaw says. He adds and because Taxi On Demand are stored value cards, and not credit cards, they're easy to get and everyone can have one.

Taxi On Demand cards can be ordered by calling 1-888-4-TOD-TAXI or visiting Once purchased, the cards can be used in any cab in the U.S. that accepts DISCOVER Network cards.

The Taxi on Demand concept is the creation of Johnny Thornton, Jr., Founder & Vice Chairman of TOD. He developed the Taxi on Demand idea while attending the University of Tennessee out of concern for the safety of fellow students.
