Curb, the popular taxi hailing app, now has a new ride option, Curb Share.
Curb Share is similar to an UberPool or Lyft Line. During a Curb Share ride you will be matched with other riders heading in the same direction as you. By sharing your ride with other travelers, you can save up to 40% off your regular taxi fare.
To use the Curb Share feature, first open your Curb app. Then tap on the center taxi button and select “Share”. Enter your pickup and dropoff locations, then tap “Request Curb Share”. Finally you will be asked to input the number of passengers in your party. Once you have completed these steps, Tap “Confirm Pickup & Book”. At this point, the app will direct you to walk to the nearest pick up location (usually the nearest intersection).
Curb Share is currently only available in New York City in the areas of the Upper West Side, Upper East Side, Midtown, and Lower Manhattan.
