Chicago's universal taxi app is coming next month

While ride-sharing services such as Uber and Lyft continue to make it more convenient (and affordable) to hitch a ride in Chicago, the city is attempting to make hailing a taxi a simpler process. Today, Mayor Rahm Emanuel announced that the city has selected Arro and Verifone as the city's universal taxi app providers. Each app will allow users to hail a taxi using a smartphone, request a fare quote and make secure payments for their rides. January 06, 2016
