A year and a half after its launch in Victoria, Current Taxi is no longer operating in the city. 

Current Taxi offered a ‘luxury alternative’ to traditional taxis with a fleet of Teslas to provide a unique electric-vehicle experience. 

The service also offered a convenient booking app. Users could set a pick-up and drop off location in the app itself, were provided a quote for their ride and could track the taxi’s location for accurate and precise pick-up.

According to reports online, the closure is being mostly blamed on COVID-19.

The Current Taxi website and social media accounts have been quiet regarding any news of their service leaving the city, however, Victoria bookings are no longer available or advertised on both their website or booking app. 

Bookings are currently only available in Kelowna, where the company was founded.

Victoria Buzz has reached out to Current Taxi, but has not heard back with any further information.
