Currently, Uber is one of the most popular taxi services available, however, an LA-based app called 'Opoli' may soon be stiff competition.

Opoli operates in a very similar manner to Uber but instead of predictably high fare rates, Opoli lets users negotiate prices through the app. After a user inputs their location, all profiles of nearby drivers pop up, allowing users to choose an appropriate personality and even car type. Opoli then determines a price for a given trip, but in doing so, links customers and drivers, allowing a customer to negotiate a price. Drivers also have the chance to outbid each other.

Once negotiations are done, and the customer selects their preferred price, a pick up can be made official. Compared to other similar programs, Opoli is a much more personalized taxi service in which customers have more control of the car type, driver and even the price they pay.
