Mediocre tech - bad fleet Longtime customer of uber, recently tried lyft, thought I'd try cabs again in case competition improved then. 5 minutes after pickup time, cab called to ask where I'm going (red flag), 5 minutes later he canceled, no other cabs would pick me up. Typical can experience, hailed an uber instead.
No rides available? Guess I'll call a cab service instead of relying on this app. I used to have Taxi Magic and it worked well.
I used the app to request a ride about 90 min in advance (a plus over Uber). The app notified me, and I received a text when the driver was dispatched, and the app showed the name of the Taxi company, the cab number, and the cabs current location. (By intention, Curb only provides rides from registered taxi services.) The driver was on time, and I could see the tablet display the driver had in his car with all the information I had entered in to Curb. When I arrived, I entered the fare total into the app on my smart phone, plus was able to add a tip. The app showed payment was complete, and 10 seconds later the drivers display beeped and showed my payment was accepted. Minuses of the app were: 1) Special instructions entered not confirmed on screen, but driver got them 2) App switched to enroute payment mode too soon before driver even picked me up 3) Text msg asked for pickup type even though i entered it already in special instructions.
Use at your own risk I would normally use taxis and pay using cash, unfortunately I decided to use this app and see if I could hail a cab faster. Well not only did I not receive a cab, the app kept stating there was an error, my debit card was charged with an authorization fee. This fee has been pending for 7 days, 5 of which have been business days. I'll continue to use lyft and uber until their services are updated and evaluated. Other ride services take their charges out as soon as the ride is over.
Useless Everytime I try to book a cab, it returns an error: "system down" Until it's fixed, this app is useless.
