  • I will stick to Lyft!!!

    By Tiffany Wilczewski
    Last night my friends and I decided to just get in a taxi (a Curb taxi) instead of calling a Lyft to go from Fremont Street to the Wyndham by The Stripe. NEVER AGAIN! I will walk back before I get in a Curb taxi. The driver had no clue where he was going, went the wrong way for at least $10 worth of the ride (got on 15 going the wrong way!).... till someone in my party pulled up a map with directions as he asked us what exit!!! When he realized he didn’t know where we were going he tried to get directions (at least that’s my assumption) while he was driving and dropped his cell phone and proceeded to pick it up WHILE still driving!!!! I lost count of the number of beeps his lane crosser made as he drifted in and out of the lane he was in. He was constantly speeding then suddenly slowing down which made a very jerky ride! I don’t get car sick.... and he almost made me toss my cookies! When confronted at the end of the ride about the going the wrong way he made excuses and insisted on the metered rate. $41 for the worst ride ever! I will take my business back to Lyft, they at least know where they are going, and don’t rip you off!
  • A good service but one Problem...

    The Curb app is easy to use. If you’re in Manhattan, there are many taxis to be had but not as easy to find in the outer boroughs. The one problem I have had both times I have used Curb as an Access-A-Ride (MTA Para-Transit) Customer is this: the first time I ordered a taxi, the driver tried to gouge me an extra $10 dollars because I am in a wheelchair. The taxi is an Accessible Taxi!! I had to call access-a-ride and have a supervisor tell the driver that the fee for Access-a-ride customers is $2.75 Period and that overcharging is Illegal. The second ride I took, the driver pressured me for a tip. Access-ride customers are not supposed to tip. Someone needs to tell drivers driving for access-a-ride that the fee for all rides is $2.75 and that gouging customers is illegal. Of course, they already Know this because they are trained for the program. I don’t want to have to haggle over an Access-A-Ride fee every time I use the service.
  • Stole My Money

    By Jen VW
    I had been using Curb for a while in NYC, felt it was convenient outside of the fact that it hits your account for $20 every time you use it (then credits it back usually within a day). But then one day last month I attempted to use it and the app wouldn’t load by the time the trip was over, so I paid with cash. Then I got a receipt for someone else’s $50 cab ride!!! Made perfect sense what had happened, since the pickup point was steps from where I’d been dropped off...the app had loaded in time to pay for the next ride in that cab. This is a tech error that should not be allowed. But to make matters worse, the Curb service person who contacted me after I disputed the charge with my bank (I wasn’t about to argue with someone there BEFORE retrieving my stolen money) was skeptical about the story and asked if I was certain I hadn’t taken that trip. And my account was suspended, as if I wanted to use that crappy service again. So, in summary, flawed tech could take your money and you’ll have to deal with rude customer care people if you want it back. Just Apple Pay.
  • Very good but needs some minor improvements

    As a frequent user of Uber back home in Seattle (because it makes more sense), I was very impressed with this app. I used it while traveling in NYC for the first time and am too safety minded to just hop in some random person’s car in NYC (no offense) and too nervous at the idea of hailing a cab. I downloaded this app immediately to help expedite the payment process, but also liked the request feature. I would suggest that similar to Uber, you include the destination in the map if I pair after I’ve already gotten in a cab. Also, it’s not immediately clear that your app works with various cabs. Some cabs have your logo while others advertise other apps - but your app worked just fine on those that promoted the other applications. There may be some missed revenue here for you guys if others make the same assumption and use your competitors instead...
  • Does it put your credit card at risk?

    By PDC Larry
    I’ve used this app 3 times. A day or two after each use fraudulent transactions appeared on the registered credit card. That’s 3 times I’ve had to cancel the card, replace it, and change the dozen or so automatic monthly charges against the card. A real pain. Fortunately the card issuer caught all of the fraud, so I didn’t have any losses other than my time. To quote Auric Goldfinger, “once is happenstance, twice coincidence, third time is enemy action”. These are the only 3 times I have had fraudulent charges on this card. Coincidence? Your guess is as good as mine. But I’m not trying for a fourth. UPDATE: Curb contacted me and suggested it was their preauthorizations I was seeing. As my card issuer cancelled the card because of fraudulent transactions from California and Mexico that is not the answer. But the bottom line - even if the card fraud is a coincidence, Curb offers nothing that I can’t get from Uber or Lyft in summoning a cab, charges an additional fee, and is no more convenient than Apple Pay which is completely secure.
  • I thought the app would be quick and easy...

    By Kwiqone
    I downloaded and setup CURB while taking a cab from Rio to the Paris Casino. Account setup and pairing with the cab went fairly easy. When we arrived the app would not allow me to progress to the pay confirmation screen (I assume this is a thing considering I never saw this part of the app). We waited as long as we could and decided to pay the driver with cash. So I pressed the "Cancel Trip" button on the screen which seemed to work and cancelled the transaction. Or so I thought. The next day I see a charge on my PayPal account and via email from CURB. So at this point I've paid twice for this cab ride. It wouldn't be a problem if it was my mistake, but both myself and the cab driver witness the cancellation via the app. What makes things worse is that I have e-mailed customer support and have yet to hear back after 2+ days. I'm hoping this review gets more attention and that I get my money back.
  • what is going on

    By Soundman245
    Curb has been great until recently, now I can never seem to “pair and pay”. it either spins forever or I get an outright trip not found or we’re sorry error. It is not my phone. is it the individual taxi transponders? Update: Now the app, even when paired, displays the forever spinning lockwasher as I call it, and never displays the map. and again recently i was unable to pair with a taxi at all and had to cancel the app and pay with a card. This is frustrating because I would like to let my son who has special needs use curb, but it is not nearly dependable enough to trust it for him. too difficult to to switch to a different card for one ride only, as for a business trip.
  • Great app until it quits working and no support from developer

    By Lance Nimrod
    This app worked extremely well in NYC until it quit, showing a message that my account had been temporarily suspended and to contact support, which I did — no response. This all happened when it was pouring rain and I really hoped I wouldn’t have to get soaked to hail a cab. I also got an email saying a credit card charge had been refused and to go into the app to fix it. The card is good and I can’t get into the app, so I contacted support about this as well. No response. I’ve been trying to use this to support a cab industry in NYC that’s been hurt by Uber but maybe I made a mistake. Uber works. If you read this, Curb, you need some fixes or at least some support because even people like me who are inclined to use cabs instead of Uber have a limit. ADDENDUM: I did ultimately get a response from Curb and resolved my problem.
  • Cool idea, bad experience

    By TheKerryHatcher
    Emailed Support, waiting on a response. 1. Taxi number didn’t match number in app. I know it was the correct taxi because I talked with him on phone when he couldn’t find me. Also the driver’s name matched and he showed me my name on his dispatch app. 2. Driver was dispatched to wrong location several blocks away. He had to call me to figure it out. 3. Price was more than double the estimate. $4 esitmate, $10 fair. Receipt attached. 4. Driver didn’t know how the Curb payment process worked. He called his manager who required me to pay him directly because I didn’t have a curb “confirmation number”. This left me standing in middle of road waiting and him blocking traffic. 5. ETA was very wrong. Originally said 9min, took ~20min. Once he called me then it took him about 7min to arrive. 6. Taxi car icon on map obviously didn’t accurately show cab’s location. 7. Once trip was over, Curb app prompted me that ride has just started and asked if I was in cab. I responded no and the app instructed me to cancel the ride. 8. Once I canceled the ride, the app crashed and took me back to login screen. When I tried to login to figure out what happened, the app alerted me that my account was suspended and to email support.
  • Great in NYC; terrible in Chicago; elsewhere?

    Curb works wonderfully in NYC, especially with the pair and pay feature. If you book pick up in Manhattan, a taxi is often just around the corner. I’d give them five stars in Manhattan. Chicago is another matter - don’t waste your time with Curb here. Despite advertising, there seem to be few taxis with it. Pair and pay is not available in most (all?) taxis. If you book, the experience is a decided 1-star. * First, on every attempt, the app waits and waits and waits for a driver to accept ride. Then, when one does accept, they are always across town and, in my experience, no less than 7 minutes away. * Curb sends you text information for arrival that is wildly different than the app info - so which to believe? * They take a pre-auth charge of $20, which is no big deal, but creates dissonance when quoted fare is $7. * Meanwhile, you’ve had several available taxis pass while you wait on the one. So big YES for NY; NO for Chicago; try it and see elsewhere.
