As a New York City regular, you travel in yellow taxi cabs quite often and hailing one has been the same for over 50 years. Passengers are forced to wait on the side of the road with their hand in the air until an empty taxi passes by. What an archaic system! Often times you wait around for upwards of 30 minutes because cabs simply have no clue as to where you are located. The lack of communication between the passenger and cab driver has compromised the process of hailing a cab.
Snag A Cab NYC has finally revolutionized the process of getting a cab in New York City and its surrounding boroughs. With Snag A Cab NYC, all you need to do is press a single button on the application, and you will instantly reach out to all of the available yellow taxi cabs in the area so they receive your exact location on a map in real time. That means you can even hail a cab while you are on the move.
No more standing on the side of the road with your hand in the air. Snag A Cab NYC will work even when you are in the local coffee shop or restaurant so you don’t have to wait out in the pouring rain or bitter cold.
Getting started with Snag A Cab NYC is easy. Just download the application and you’re ready to get a cab from wherever you are!
