The Coastal Ride App is the premier Taxi Booking App for Hampton Roads, including service in Newport News, Hampton, Norfolk, Chesapeake, Virginia Beach, and their local airports and military bases.

Now you can easily book a taxi based on your current location or by entering your pickup location details. The Coastal Ride App then locates the closest cab to ensure prompt service. Using our live tracking feature, you can watch your cab arrive on a map and receive “on approach” notifications when the cab is near. The Fare Estimator, using the rates set by the city, can roughly estimate the cost of your ride.

You can also schedule future pickups from any location to book a taxi to the destination of your choice, such as the airport or downtown. You can even choose from recently used locations or save your own favorites (i.e., Home, Work, Gym, Favorite Bar, etc.).

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.

Doesn't work anymore

I haven't been able to use the app OR their website to book a cab the past two times I tried. It always gives an error. The time before that I booked the cab and the app showed that it had been canceled twice for no reason, then it finally kept the third reservation. Then two cabs showed up at the same time. It just is too buggy to rely on.

Worked fine

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.
