Ratings and Reviews
I booked a taxi 4 days in advance. The app claimed i was picked up and dropped off. I booked another one, and immediately got a call from a driver, who was on his way. Never showed up. At last I call the taxi service, a nice lady on the other line assured me that a taxi was on the way. I waited outside for an hour and a half, not a single car driving by, and missed my train.
I was a bit worried after all the negative reviews, but I had no problem. Car arrived a few minutes early, but happy to wait. App notified me when it was on the way and again when it was nearby. Driver was competent and courteous. Price estimate was right on.
For the drivers. Not the app.
The drivers for the Norfolk/Hampton area are extremely rude for the most part. They refuse to pick people up around grocery stores and laundromat. They will get mad at you if you are only going a mile or so down the road. Their cabs are very poorly maintained and I haven't had one trip where the driver was not talking on his phone the whole time while driving instead of paying attention to the road. Use Uber or Lyft in these areas for nice respectable drivers and cheaper fares. I will not use norfolk area cabs again and I hope no one else does either.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
