Three quick notes:

  • Yep, there are plenty of apps out there. I’ve tried to pick the ones with solid, working apps and satisfied customers. Have you used one that worked for you that you don’t see above? Leave it in the comments (country and name of app is perfect).
  • I’ve tried to avoid apps that call a taxi’s phone number, have a fee to use beyond the taxi fare, are run by a single taxi company, long-haul ride-sharing apps, etc. Did I get one wrong? Leave it in the comments.
  • Obviously, I’m not responsible for anything these apps do (or don’t do).
