How Does the Metro Cab App Work?
The Metro Cab App can be used on an iPhone (iOS 4.3 or later) and an Android. Both mobile phones have the ability to connect to the internet via a data network or via wireless.
This Metro Taxi logo will appear screen of the user's phone. One need only tap on the icon and the message "locate me" will appear. Using GPS technology, the Metro Cab App will automatically locate the customer and will prompt the user for an address if the passenger would like to be picked up from somewhere other than where one is currently located.
Next, the taxi booking technology will ask for the date and time of pickup and any specific driver note (e.g. "pick me up at the east side of Smith Avenue"). The user will be prompted via a map-view screen to drop a pin button at their preferred pick-up location. Once confirmed by the customer by the touch of an icon, a trip request will immediately be sent to Metro Taxi and the customer will be notified of the cab number en route to their pickup location.
