DC Taxi Cab App – No Surge Pricing?
From Washington Business Journal:
The Washington Post reports the commission spent approximately $500,000 creating and launching the app, which is available for Android and Apple phones.
“We think providing the technology platform gives them more than a fighting chance,” commission Chairman Ernest Chrappah said. “The app is critical. [It] eliminates a barrier. I can now connect to the driver electronically.”
There are some 6,500 licensed taxis in D.C. and all are expected to be connected to the app, the commission says.
