Three words to enter any destination in London: Sherbet Electric Taxis partners with what3words
People can now use what3words addresses across all Sherbet Ride booking channels to get dropped off at precise locations.
Today, Sherbet Electric Taxis announces its partnership with location technology, what3words. what3words will enable new & existing Sherbet Customers to provide more accurate location data and help Sherbet deliver a Safe & Sustainable service to Londoners. Passengers can enter a what3words address for their pick up or drop-off location, meaning they no longer have to enter long and often unreliable street addresses. Three words are all they need.
what3words is an easy way to identify precise locations. Every 3 metre square has been given a unique combination of three words: a what3words address. So, for example, ///cafe.track.logo will take you to the easiest pick-up point outside of Charing Cross.
Moving around London will be easier and simpler than ever and Sherbet drivers will no longer have to waste time looking for the exact pick up or drop-off locations. Whether it’s a specific door, shopping mall entrance, street corner, or park gate, Sherbet passengers can enter what3words addresses to enable the fastest possible route planning.
‘Sherbet Ride is providing an incredible service to Londoners. It’s fast, convenient and its UI makes it easy to use. The addition of what3words will make that experience even better, as passengers will know they’re arriving exactly where they need to be, without the need for extra directions.’

‘We are delighted to be partnering with what3words, a location technology that will enhance the experience for both Sherbet passengers and drivers while helping the business drive efficiency’.
