This app is pretty annoying to use. Searching for and choosing a taxi is not too difficult. But the time between when you request a taxi and when you get in the care is confusing. The driver's location updates once every two minutes or so, making it difficult to know exactly where your driver is. I found that my driver was in the same location for around five minutes. I'm not sure if this was because the app didn't inform my driver or didn't update or because my driver didn't see my request. Either way, I grew increasingly concerned that my driver simply wasn't coming. I ended up waiting around a total of ten minutes for my driver when I was in a time crunch. After I finished my ride the app said my driver might not be coming - apparently the app didn't know I actually got the ride.
Communication between the app and the taxi company / driver seems to be broken. This is why people are turning toward companies that are digital native and keep their fleet information centralized and timely. Using an app to call a traditional taxi feels like using a fax machine to apply for a job - it does the job but it's quite clunky.
Lyft is much more reliable, with real-time location tracking and much faster response times.
**Warning: do not believe + reviews, this app is awful!!**
Any positive reviews may not be honest about this app. Had 2 AWFUL experiences. One last night where they assigned 2 different cabs but none ever showed up, leaving me waiting for over 1 hour and then just now when it just sat on "assigning taxi" for an extended period of time. I'm in downtown New Orleans. Afraid to see how it would work outside of a huge city. Yikes! Don't waste your time and certainly don't give them your credit card info. Not making any assumptions just encouraging everyone to be safe and think 2x before sharing sensitive credit info. Best of luck.
I've used it twice now in Portland OR and it has worked better than I thought it would. Within minutes of hitting the ready to be picked up button, a taxi was on our way to pick us up and we could see how far away it was from reaching us. Super convenient!
