App hails cab from your phone
No need to hail a cab with a big wave! There's a new app in Houston that promises to do that for you.
Taxi Magic has arrived in Houston after making successful ventures in 45 other U.S. cities. The app partnered with local fleet company, Lone Star Cab, which has more than 400 vehicles.
Houston riders can book a taxi from the app on their smart phone, whether traveling downtown or to one of Houston's airports. Riders can track their cab on a map in real-time.
It also allows for online payment and when needed, a receipt for expense reports.
The new app joins Yellow Cab's "Hail a Cab" app, which was introduced in July.
