Taxi Share

Find people traveling the the same direction as you, share the ride. Call Taxi.
Save Time, Save Money & Share Your Taxi!

Taxi Share Chicago allows you to easily and quickly share a taxi with someone else going to the same popular destination (Wrigley Field, U.S. Cellular, Downtown, O'Hare, Midway, etc.).

How it works:
Select your destination, look for others on the map going to the same place (each traveler is represented by a color coded dot corresponding to their destination). Tap their dot/icon and a chat window will appear. Exchange a quick text to confirm your desire to share the ride and that's it! Whoever hails a cab first picks up the other person! The first time you use the app, you will be asked to enter a first name or alias that you can change anytime using the menu function.
Extras:
The menu function will allow you to call a cab company directly, turn your phone into a flashing beacon (signaling your color coded destination) and allow you to input your favorite destinations.
