Ratings and Reviews
The mobile app is so kickass, every time my wife and I ordered a cab through this the job gets picked up almost immediately. Never had to wait more than 5-10 minutes even when it's busy. Yellow cab is horrific, we've waited for an hour more than a few times. Checker cab is always fast and friendly
I use the cab to go between job sites. I book 30-60 mins ahead and sometimes a driver isn't dispatched. When I call, dispatch seems to have an attitude problem. I've been told the request wasn't received or I need to wait an additional 45 minutes, or "it's busy (to which the driver who finally picked me up and hour later said 'no. It's not busy at all'). Always an excuse never an apology.
Could be great, needs help
When you order a cab it goes into a 'previous bookings' menu- which makes it seem like the cab request was denied (especially when you're in the state of mind one might need a cab). Consider making an 'open bookings' menu/ tab and I will give this 5 stars.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
