What is Arro Taxi?

What City & State do you work in?
Long Island, NY
Arro Taxi is an Uber-like service that lets you "hail" a taxi cab using an app. Or if you're already in a taxi, it lets you pay through the app, so no fumbling around with cash or credit cards.

With that said, most people want to know what cities they're available in. They're only available in:

  • Austin
  • Boston
  • Chicago
  • Houston
  • New York &
  • San Francisco
Now, here's the startling thing. Arro is so tiny they don't even do 10% of the trips nationwide that Uber does in New York City in one day! Even Lyft does twice as many rides in New York as Arro does nationwide.

New York's TLC puts the number of Uber trips taken DAILY at 400,000! But Arrow says their whole system only does 43,000 trips daily across six cities. So they are very, very small.

Screenshot from the New York Times article from June, 2018:

And this is from Arro's page bragging about how many monthly users they have:

So they have ten times fewer monthly users in six cities as Uber has DAILY users in one city!

But, if you're a user - you can use Arro to pay for all taxis in New York as all taxi drivers are connected to the Arro system.
