Ratings and Reviews
As an avid tech savvy app ride sharing NYC guy
Now It’s one thing to introduce a new app and such to New York City and not have it work as well as others. But there are also times where you want to give feedback to other apps and have them fix the app and hopefully they’ll respond. Unfortunately this is not one of those apps. I cannot tell you how many times I have attempted to use this app, and have only used it probably once or twice and I’ve got an actual ride from it. Let alone the discount or two that they have provided, but the app seems to always freeze, never gets anything right, never has drivers around, or I’m stuck with a random driver that is apparently coming.....from 2 days ago.
No matter what borough I’m in, The application never works properly. Even when I force close it, delete it, re-download it, then open it again. I have no idea what is wrong with the application but something needs to change with this app as soon as possible. And I thought ARRO was bad? This is just as worse.
Waave brings back nyc cabs
This app can help solve many problems that are going on in today’s taxi industry.
By having the same technology as Uber and lyft, Waave can be a positive force if it gets enough people to use the app. The reality is that NYC cabs have been struggling due to the massive amount of people using these ride sharing apps. It’s also has caused more traffic in the city because more people are trying to make a quick buck on the side. By restoring the use of these cabs through Waave app it can help struggling taxi drivers if they make the right move and also help the everyday New Yorker since now they don’t have to be in the streets to hail cabs. Now you can do it from the convenience of your phone.
Made a couple trips with this and everything is good for now.
Fail: Its not about price, its about professionalism.
This is kinda a sad attempt of TLC to get into the uber space a dollar short and a day late.
Unless the fares are drastically lower then the uber/lyft black cars, who in their right mind would WANT to ride with a crazy yellow cab driver lol. Majority of them are rude, on phone, and speed to next red light to stop fast spilling your water all over (don't drink anything in a yellow unless you want it on your lap!).
Locals and biz professionals prefer the private cars not because of price but because of image and professionalism which yellow taxi drivers are notoriously not a master of.
Tourist love the idea of NYC Taxis - stick with that waave.
Now, If this app can automatically place a complaint to tlc and tlc NOT require you to show up in person for the court hearing then maybe it is a real disruptor. Otherwise its false hope wrapped up with a map and a credit card reader replacement for driver that gives customers an easier time to try to report them.
As for app, who knows! I tried pulling the rider app but they are invite only. Nice first impression Waave. Goodluck!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
