Perfectly good if you know what you’re signing up for

I use Curb pretty often both in NYC and Chicago. In NYC, it’s great for getting a cab from Manhattan back to Brooklyn (or around Manhattan), less so for calling a cab to the outer boroughs to begin with. It’s almost always much cheaper than Uber/Lyft, and it’s nice to support taxi cabs, but you do have to not be in a big rush. The cabs often take longer to get to you (unless you’re in a very dense area of Manhattan). But all the cab drivers I’ve been matched with through the app are very accommodating and kind, and often more flexible than Uber/Lyft on some things (e.g. seating 4 passengers in a normal-sized car). I’ve never had any payment problems. In Chicago, it’s a lot more hit and miss, but when it works it’s great! I got a cab to O’Hare from Hyde Park at $30 less than Uber/Lyft were charging. I just knew to expect a ~15 min wait so I planned accordingly. Tl;dr almost always cheaper than Uber/Lyft, but definitely longer wait times & more spotty availability; plan accordingly and you’ll be fine.

In NYC growing up, I never took yellow cabs because we knew they wouldn’t stop for us, or would refuse to drive us if we were going to Outer Boroughs, or would hike up meters on us. When ride apps got popular I was a huge fan, because drivers had to commit to the ride you requested to a static price you agreed to pay in advance. While Curb does manage to be cheaper than Uber or Lyft by a decent amount, the few times I’ve tried to use it on the past week have felt like dealing with yellow cab racism all over again.

These drivers will drop your ride if they see you going to brooklyn (my friend from the bronx has had the same problem), and twice now I’ve been on the phone with a driver using my work voice only for them to drive right past me and cancel when they physically see me. Twice now despite putting in my numbered address, drivers have followed the terrible Curb GPS, tried to drop me off in the wrong place late at night, and then argued with me about it. I’m coping w a back issue getting to and from work in Manhattan and trying to use this for the last two weeks has been depressing. Truly worth just sticking to Uber or Lyft, which obviously have their own problems in excess & ridiculous surges but with way less rider discrimination at the very least. At least I get in a car and get where I asked to go, which I think is the bare minimum to ask from a ride service.

Never Again

I was trying to go back to using a taxi instead of Uber or Lyft and my first experience was extremely off - putting and unpleasant.

My ride arrived , I confirmed it was my driver, and suddenly as I got in the car, the driver seemed to have disconnected the ride from the app. So, there goes my ride fare estimate, my $5 credit I was planning to use, and now I needed to re-tell him where I was going. Well , we were heading to the destination, his driving sucked and I had to use a panic attack app to breathe properly since so many things were making me uncomfortable at this point. I kept checking the app to see if my ride was being tracked, NOPE. I watched the meter amount go up and up.

He asked again where I was going and proceeded to take a turn in the wrong direction where we ended up unnecessarily in heavy traffic. I was so stressed out, I had to call the office where I had the appointment to tell them I’d be late, and I kept saying I’ll get out and walk. He disagreed that we were going the wrong way but we definitely were. Nearly in tears, I arrive at my appointment and the only silver lining is that the charges did not appear on my account since the driver disconnected the ride. He also told me I couldn’t have walked because it’s not good for me. That made no sense. Never again. As they say the road to hell is paved with good intentions.
