I’ve never felt comfortable hailing a cab.  First, I can’t ever remember if the light on means they are available, or not available.  It seems awkward to wave my arm in the air.  I can’t whistle.  Middle of the block?  Corner?  I never know where to stand.  And the worst? Yes, people have walked right smack in front of me and stolen, yes, stolen, grrrrrr, my cab.  In the rain.  What’s a girl to do?

Well the days of awkward arm waving, hailing already-occupied cabs, and having cabs stolen right out from under me are over.  So over.  I recently went to downtown Chicago with a friend and we took a cab to lunch.  I used the new service, Curb, to call a cab to take us from Navy Pier to the Hancock Building.  It was easy-peasey!  I had downloaded the Curb app on my phone before I left home, so I would be ready.  At Navy Pier, it took just a few taps on the app and a few minutes later, our cab appeared.  The driver knew he was picking up a Curb call, and I knew the name and number of the cab – no one was stealing my cab *big-happy-grin*.

It didn’t apply on this trip, but I’ve also been in places where it was hard to find a cab.  I would have to ask a restaurant host or a hotel desk to call me a cab.  No more!  Not with Curb.  Now wherever I am, the Curb app will take care of it for me.  Have you ever asked someone to call you a cab and waited and waited?  You keep wondering if perhaps they forgot, but hate to nag a busy person.  It’s awkward.  No more!  Here comes my *big-happy-grin* again.

Okay, one more problem that happens to me with taking a cab that is solved by Curb.  I don’t carry a lot of cash.  I know, I know, shame on me.  But I rely on credit cards.  I am all about the plastic.  You can always pay a Curb fare with a credit card.  I have to admit, I’m not sure with all cabs in Chicago, if they all accept credit cards or not, but with Curb, I don’t have to worry or remember to ask.  And I was emailed a receipt – great for recordkeeping purposes! One more *big-happy-grin*.

Oops, I forgot… one more reason to love Curb!  Chicago weather.  Yup, you know what I’m talkin’ about.  It’s raining, it’s snowing, it’s windy, it’s cold, it’s hot.  With Curb, you see exactly where your ride is and how close to arriving it is.  That means you can wait inside where it’s temperature controlled and dry until your ride is ready to pick you up.  Oh, that definitely deserves a *big-happy-grin”.
