This is in order to mark World Kindness Day.

FREE NOW has announced it will be giving away 1,000 free trips to passengers this weekend.

In a statement, the mobility service provider said that it was undertaking the initiative to mark World Kindness Day on 13 November and as a way of saying “thank you” to its passengers.

Winners will be selected at random, thus giving anyone the opportunity to win a free taxi ride.

All you have to do is order to taxi through the FREE NOW app as normal on 12 and 13 November and drivers will randomly surprise the lucky passengers with free trips.

“At FREE NOW we are lucky to have such a kind passenger base that appreciates the hard work our driver partners put in,” FREE NOW’s General Manager Niall Carson.

“It is clear from our research that a chat can go a long way, and this country thrives off the kindness of strangers.

“On World Kindness Day weekend, we are delighted to say thank you to our passengers by giving away 1,000 free trips through our driver partners.”

According to new research from the mobility service provider, almost half (48%) of people say a taxi driver has gone out of their way for them during a trip and three-quarters (74%) have been cheered up by a conversation with a taxi driver.
