Customer Reviews

Very good

I had a trip to NYC with my parents, with one of them in a wheelchair. We stayed in Manhattan the entire time. This app was a life saver. We used it four times and every trip was great. It works better scheduling ahead of time instead of pick up now. I received a call on my phone when the cab was outside. All cabs had a rear ramp right into them and drivers were great. Three or four people plus someone in a wheelchair can fit into the cabs. Highly recommend.

At least for now, it does not work in Brooklyn

The description states it works "throughout New York City." It does not work in Brooklyn (which has been part of NYC, in fact, if not always in spirit, for over a century). I recognize that most yellow cabs focus in Manhattan, but they are required to service the other boroughs. Perhaps no cabs are nearby at a given time, but that does not excuse the app for not even looking.

This may not be the app's problem. The problem may reside with the NYC TLC, but whatever, right now the app reports "No Taxi Service near Brooklyn, NY". We'll see if this changes.

Thinking outside the box

Huge props to the people that thought of integrating an app to the new accessible fleet of cabs. I can't wait to try it out on my next trip in the city. I just hope it lives up to its claims!
