Smartest Way To Find A Cab IN NYC

Posted in ideas, Media by aldorf on April 16, 2010

a new iPhone app called Cab Sense.

CabSense, which the company (Sense Networks) just released two weeks ago, shows on a map the best street corners for getting a cab in New York, taking into account the time and day. With CabSense, the user can see “hot” corners for getting a cab in the vicinity right now, or plan ahead and see what would be the best location for hailing a taxi, say, the next day to get to the airport.

“Right now” doesn’t mean that CabSense will tell you exactly where the cabs are driving right at that moment, though. It does not track specific taxis in real time. But its taxicab predictions are based on some heavy-duty data crunching, said Blake Shaw, a project manager at Sense Networks, who worked closely on CabSense.
