I see them all over Jerusalem now,when did they start here?

I used them 3 times and every time I got an Arab,I didn't feel comfortable the whole ride.
The problem is they go with a flag on top showing they are part of a company,till now people knew if someone is part of a company he could pull him over knowing he is not an Arab (all the companies here will never take an Arab) so the people without the app that don't see his picture or name ,don't know he is an Arab only once they are in the car.

I would NOT drive in a cab with an Arab even if he's with a company!

There are still certain companies who you know you aren't getting an Arab. I've stopped using Gett recently and I only use Bar Ilan now.

I'm sorry, but that is utter and complete horse-💩. I've been in Israel for over seven years now, and even before my times, there were plenty of companies with flags and everything that had Arab drivers. The "Jewish" companies like Bar Ilan and Ramot Alon don't have Arab drivers, but dozens of other companies do. Plus you have plenty of independent drivers (both Jews and Arabs) who do not want to pay the fees required to join a company, but put little flags on their roof or little signs on their windshield that look similar to those of major companies, to fool people into feeling comfortable flagging them down.

Lately what I am doing is, if I see the name is an Arab I cancel on the spot and I still have the option to leave feedback,I give a 1 star,eventually they will all fly out of the company I have heard from drivers that others are doing it too (especially from har nof).

A driver told me that if a driver gets down to 4.3 stars it's game over. :)

(A driver can not see who is giving him feedback)

Somehow, that doesn't seem very wise to me. Win the battle, lose the war...

I use this app all the time...
I'm not sure why the OP says you get 20 shek referral credit. You get 30 - both the refferer and the reffered.

Here's my refferal code ( you just enter it in the app under "coupon code" ) - GTISAAC21 or http://invite.gettaxi.co.il/code/GTISAAC21

You can add the code even before taking your first ride - your balance will show up under "My Profile"

(Note: in order to use your balance you will have to add a valid cc/dc to your profile)

What's the issue? There's a nice handful of Jews that live there and I've been there plenty of times myself.
