History & Development
In 1978, the Heraklion Radio Taxi “KNOSSOS” which then had only 25 members, pioneered and launched the first Radio-Taxi service in Greece.
The benefits of the immediate service of the commuters, through the wireless communication between the call center and the taxi-drivers, became evident very quickly to the rest of Greece, with tens of other societies, unions and companies following our example.
Today, our Heraklion Radio Taxi Association consists of 300 members in Heraklion city and after years of improvements and enhancements our facilities are more modern and efficient than ever.
Since 2004, we have been operating a pioneering Automated Fleet Management-Call Distribution System. When the client calls the center and gives his address, the system detects (through GPS) the position of the vehicles and sends the nearest Taxi to the client, minimizing waiting time and improving the quality of service.
The Automated Fleet Management-Call Distribution System is the only taxi-call system in Greece which has the ability to recognize and understand speech and one of the few systems in the world with these particular characteristics.
