For the third consecutive year, homegrown taxi hailing service PickMe has a special transport plan for those visiting the Colombo international Book Fair (CBIF) from September 15 to 24 at the BMICH, Colombo. 

The company said in a media release that special permission has been given from the BMICH to use Gate 3A on Malalasekara Mawatha for their taxi fleet of three wheelers, mini cars, cars and vans to pick up visitors who have requested for a PickMe taxi. Each driver will be provided with a special vehicle pass to access the gate from 9am to 11pm from the book fair.  

Highly regarded as the biggest book fair of the entire Asian region, CIBF happens every year at the Sirimavo Bandaranaike Memorial Exhibition Centre with more than 400 book stalls and over one million visitors. 
PickMe will also have a special taxi waiting station for their drivers at the BMICH premises as well as an interactive stall where PickMe staff members will be available throughout the day to educate people about the company, answer and resolve any query related to the PickMe app, the release said. 

PickMe maintains a base of over half a million registered users of the PickMe app and a taxi fleet of over 10,000, including three wheelers, mini cars, cars and vans.
