Has anyone used Curb?

Has anyone tried using Curb?  I've only ever used Uber and Lyft, but I hear good things about Curb - and I'm often in areas with a ton of cabs around, so it would be nice to just be able to use my phone to pay for a car nearby instead of hailing a different rideshare much further away.

    Nope. Never heard of it.

    This question makes me realize just how hard it is to compete with Uber. I mean, why would anyone use Curb? It's going to be more expensive than Lyft or Uber in many places, and I can't really see any benefits other than having licensed taxi drivers, which frankly is not necessarily an advantage in some places...

      Agreed - makes a lot of sense!  I'll probably stick to what I know for now!

    Does anyone know if you can pay via curb app if you just hail a cab off the street? I mean, without using the app to hail the cab. You just flag it down. In that case can you pay using curb? Because usually the taxi credit card machine is "broken" (sure, right), but if I could pay in curb instead it would be easy.

    I see Curb bumpber stickers on the back of cabs sometimes. Never tried it.

    I used it once but it is nothing special. Just a taxi that costs a little bit more due to the Curb app fee.
