Ratings and Reviews
I use Metro Cab often
They're my favorite Boston taxi service. When this app worked, it was terrific. But now it constantly provides an error that the servers can't connect. It does this after you've already gone through the process to request a cab. It's been this way for months, and re-installing the app doesn't help. I'd give it 5 stars if it worked again, but now it's useless.
1. Cab doesn't arrive
2. Although app says you can view cab on map like Uber, map doesn't load automatically and there is no link to find it.
I'm sure it will improve but pretty useless as of 5/6/16.
Allow driver to cancel on the fly and leave you late !!!
I had a driver accepted 5 mins before pick up time and then cancel it 7mins after so wasted over 10mins almost late to the airport
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
