New App Aims To Help Taxis Outmaneuver TNCs

Posted on August 27, 2015

NEW YORK -- Eighteen months in the making, a new smartphone application allows users to hail and pay for yellow and green taxi rides in New York City, mirroring a service that Uber already provides called UberT. But Arro's designers claim their app is faster, cheaper and more reliable than Uber's.

Arro, being beta-tested in 7,000 cabs and to launch in a couple of weeks, is gearing up for its big New York debut and hopes to eventually launch in other cities like San Francisco, Washington, D.C., Chicago and Boston.
