About this app

Currently available in San Francisco Bay Area, Seattle, Sacramento and San Diego.

Request a cab, watch it come to you, get notified when it arrives, and pay automatically with your smartphone.

★ Wired – "Flywheel…is a slick, seamless process for rider and driver"

★ The Next Web – "all the features that users have come to love and expect…with a fresher interface”


The Flywheel advantage is simple:

✔ Ease. Request a cab with just two taps.

✔ Convenience. Hail a cab even when you can’t see one and pay without carrying cash.

✔ Reliability. See a map of your cab arriving, know exactly when it will get to you, and call your driver directly through the app. Flywheel is perfect for airport taxi cab service and flat rates are available in many areas.

✔ Value. Licensed cabs from Flywheel use standard fares, which are often the lowest. You pay the same fare every hour of every day, no matter how busy it is.

✔ Great Service. If you ever have a problem, tell us, and we’ll make it right.

WAS a great app for me, but a driver failed to end my trip from his end, and now the app is unusable from my end. I've tried uninstalling & reinstalling, tried deleting the cache, the acct data, nothing works, as soon as I login, I'm taken to the screen that says I'm in the middle of a trip. And there's no way to contact support from within the app to let anyone know something's wrong. Big oversight on the developers part.

I've been using this app with no problems until recently. It keeps crashing, even when the app is not even open. I've cleared the cache and the defaults, forced quit, and I still keep getting crash notices. Eventually I uninstalled the app just to make the notices stop. Just now I tried to reinstall and as soon as it installed, before I even had a chance to open it, I got the dreaded crash notification, so I'm going to delete again. Hope this gets fixed. ☹️

Hello Laura, We're sorry to hear that. Although, we'd recommend you to contact the support team at and they will be best to find a solution.

Every single driver asks me to cancel the ride booked through the app once I have been picked up. A difference in when they get paid apparently. I have refused, but it happens every single time I book an advance airport ride. Something clearly needs to change on the process because it's awkward and annoying.
