The ARRO taxi app lets users hail, schedule, and pay for rides, but users can also hail a taxi themselves and just use ARRO to pay by entering a code found in the taxi. The app is free for Android and iOS devices and helps to connect users to nearby professional taxi drivers.
The service is available in London, England, as well as the following U.S. cities:
ARRO isn’t a peer-to-peer rideshare. Its drivers go through training and are locally licensed drivers.
Once you reach your destination, your payment is automatically paid via the app and a receipt is emailed to you.
Unlike rideshare services like Uber and Lyft, ARRO doesn’t do surge pricing. Whether there is bad weather or high demand, prices aren’t affected.
You can easily use multiple forms of payment, added into one account. So, if you have a business card and personal card, etc, you can add up to three options and label them.
If you need a wheelchair-accessible vehicle, ARRO might be a good fit for you. It even trains drivers to help.
ARRO isn’t available everywhere, but if you live in or visit one of the covered cities, this would be a great, stress-free ride option.
