From Japanese Cab-Calling Apps to Fare-Splitting Cab Services

Uber has spurred on a movement of taxi apps that are slowly taking over the world. As people move towards leading more eco-friendly lifestyles and personal vehicle purchases decrease, it is only natural that urbanites would be in search of easy and affordable cab services. These taxi apps offer that and more in order to make transportation convenient for all.

By adopting mobile technology, the taxi apps enable people to split fares, hail cabs at a push of a button and even experience fun promotional events. Uber has been such a success that countries are introducing their own versions to compete with the service. Soon to join this roster of taxi apps is a Google-based one.
