Too new to know for sure…
I am reviewing this on March 10, 2019 and I will check back after an upcoming trip through O’Hare to update this about my experience.
What I can say is that every time that I have tried to add a credit card (first a visa, and then American Express) I go through the whole thing only to end up with a “ unable to confirm“ message. It would be nice if I could use this app to schedule and pay for services but it looks like I can’t use it to pay… I will have to revisit this to see if I can at least use it to schedule.
I’m so confused by this. Is the purpose of this app to request a taxi and pay upon entering the cab or pay through the app? It didn’t ask if I wanted to pay but when I scheduled a ride to check the cost, it didn’t show me so I didn’t know how much I was paying. But it still continued to process payment even if I didn’t have a CC in file..? So I cancelled. In the receipt it said my destination was apparently the place I was in but it didn’t specify where to be picked up from. And it didn’t show how it was suppose to be paid....um what?
Tried to use it on two different mornings; first time worked great. Second time the cab driver accepted and never showed up. Instead he accepted the fare and picked up someone on the street and took them somewhere else (I got the receipt via email). Do not put your credit card in the app. Very frustrating when you need a cab to the airport. Plus has no cancel function for when the cab driver does that.
