Verifone Curb advances NYC taxi booking

Verifone Inc. just gave a boost to traditional taxis by adding new booking features to its taxi hailing and reserving app, Curb. Through an invitation-only pilot, New York cab drivers will be the first in the nation to try out the app's new functionality. Riders in the Big Apple will now be able to use Curb to set pickup locations, hail cabs immediately or reserve scheduled pickup times. Full launch in more than 60 U.S. cities is expected in the near future. April 11, 2016
