The main reason Curb sounded appealing to me is that you can supposedly use the app to request a ride at a certain time using the “pick me up later” option.
You can set this time for anytime that same day, or tomorrow.
Doesn’t that sound great?!
The problem is that while I have tried DOZENS of times to hail a cab through the Curb app, I have only been successful THREE times. On any given day, if I try to use the app, this is what I see:
Notice the complete lack of yellow cabs in the screen shot?
So, I’m wondering: has ANYONE been able to use Curb on a regular basis? If so, where are you? Where does Curb work? I’ve tried it in San Francisco, Oakland, New York, and Phoenix. I’d love to know if it’s actually a reliable option in any other cities, or if it’s a bust all around.
Please weigh in with your success (or lack therof). Let’s crowdsource to figure out if this actually works or not!
If it does, you can get a free ride up to $10 with a referral code. If it doesn’t, I’m planning on deleting the app from my phone once and for all 🙂
