99Taxis is the largest application to request taxis using mobile devices in Brazil. Locally founded it features one of the largest fleets of registered taxi drivers and operating in over 399 cities in the country.
To celebrate Halloween they are randomly offering free rides between the hours of 8pm from October 31 to 2am on November 1st. During that period, 72 vehicles running in 8 major cities: São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Belo Horizonte, Curitiba, Porto Alegre, Recife, Salvador and Fortaleza, featuring thematically decorated taxi cabs steered by drivers in costume, loaded with treats and special soundtrack, will be randomly assigned to app users calling for a taxi. If you’re the lucky one to hail one of these cabs, the passenger gets to enjoy some sweets, the fun Halloween theme and their ride is free of charge.
Hopefully people will post videos or pictures after experiencing this tomorrow. If that happens, I will update this post with a selection of them.
