The only thing more irritating than not being able to find a parking spot is having to rip a $100 bill into tiny, coin-shaped fragments that fit inside the meter when you do. There's no need to search for the sweet spot with this Groupon
- $9 for $20 worth of cab fare for a single ride
Customers must have an iPhone or Android smartphone, on which they download the GetRide app. They then set their pickup location and wait for a call from the driver, who verifies the location and pickup time.
GetRide's app transforms an iPhone or Android smartphone into an electronic beacon, which draws in cab drivers like a magnet. Users need only set their pickup location and then wait. Moments later, a cab driver calls, verifies the information, and then zooms off to pick up customers, who can track the progress of their ride. Fares and tips are paid through GetRide, and the app also incorporates a review system, so users can seek out the most reliable cab drivers in the city and all of its alternate dimensions.
