At last, sanity has prevailed. for those of you who have been following the story you will remember that the City Administration wanted to have a year trial of allowing people to use apps to hail their yellow cabs, adding another choice to the often fraught process of cab hailing in NYC.
No said the Black Limousine cabs who thought it would infringe on thier current ability to use those apps for themselves and themselves alone.
Off it went to the courts and now the judge concerned has said the trial is okay, go ahead with it.
So now is the time to go get an app if you haven’t already got one. The most popular are Hailo, Uber, Cabulous and Zab Kab.
Many of these are already operating in other parts of the US so you can pick up reviews online before downloading the one you want. See the video post for a discussion of what you can choose from.
Most allow you to not only book your cab, but pay for it, including tip. Very, very convenient and time saving. So good to be able to do this at last. LIKe using apps to hail cabs.
