New York City launch their own verison of the uber app

New York City has thousands of the new cabs running round 24 hours a day. Insiders of the city’s taxi industry are launching an app that allows customers to hail cabs and pay for rides using a smartphone.

The App is called Arro. This app is very similar to the British taxi app Uber. The Arro app will give a nearby cabbie the passenger’s name, pickup address, and cross street. The user, meanwhile, gets the driver’s name and ID number. The app saves credit card info, letting passengers pay the metered fare and tip automatically. Another advantage is no surge pricing; the app developers told Crain’s that fares always will be meter-based.

Due to high popularity from the Uber app, New York City thought it was a good idea to design their own version for their taxi drivers. To read the full article, click here.
