Much has changed in Galway since Big O began serving the people of Galway in 1961, none more so than the taxi industry.
Old footage demonstrates Big O's presence was as much part of life in Galway in the intervening decades as it is today.
As Galway changed, modernised, and adapted over the last 50 years, so too did Big O. Credit cards were not part of commerce in the sixties, so nobody could have visualised PSVs accepting plastic payment with on-board technology.
The company’s willingness to invest in new technologies is the reason why Big O has a reputation in Galway for punctuality and efficiency.
This technological investment has huge benefits for the customer and has been an important factor in the company securing long term business relationships with State agencies, local authorities, airport, hotels, major employers, and the business community.
Recently Big O launched its biggest investment for customers, offering up to €5 off for customers who call (091 ) 585858 when booking a taxi on their mobiles. To avail of this huge saving customers can present their €5 off card to any of Big O’s drivers. If customers have not yet received the discount card, they can do so by visiting the office in Dominick Street or by phoning 585858 or by emailing [email protected]
Big O’s €2 off promotion is still ongoing and can be used on all fares of €8 or greater.
Big O is challenging customers to compare the company’s efficiency with any other taxi operator in the coming days.
