curb: The app that makes ordering a taxi easier than ever

I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Curb. I received a promotional code to facilitate my review and a promotional item to thank me for participating.

It's raining. Snowing. Or you just need to get from your Chicago neighborhood to the Loop, and pronto. You could try hailing a cab...if you manage to find one (it's impossible). I can't even tell you how many times I've dealt with taxis never making an appearance (yes...I've been stood a taxi...). In fact, the last time I called a taxi the good (bad) old-fashioned way - by telephone - while running late for a flight out of O'Hare - it never arrived leaving me in quite the pickle. Luckily a neighbor stepped up but it truly was a disaster of a travel "situation". 

Here's a new option: 

curb is a new app that makes ordering a taxi easier than ever. You'll pay the same price as hailing one on the street. But curb offers some distinct advantages.

You can request a ride in seconds...and get picked up in minutes. No more waiting on the line with a dispatcher. No more standing on the corner hoping an available taxi will give you a chance. Set your pick up location and a curb driver will be there ASAP. 

curb will connect with nearby licensed, fully-insured drivers. You won't have to wonder if your driver is truly a licensed driver. curb drivers meet all city regulations with regards to licensing. 

You can track your ride on the map as it arrives to you. No more wondering if a taxi is really ever going to actually arrive. You can see - in real time - where your driver is. 

You can pay your fare using the Curb app, or pay with cash. This option means you don't have to dig around in your purse for change, or waste even a minute digging out your credit card for processing in taxi. 

You'll receive an email receipt when you pay through the app. This makes keeping track of receipts for expense account purposes 100x easier.
