Here's how it works: With just two taps of your Smartphone, you can "hail" a taxi and watch it arrive in real time. Halio only does biz with licensed Chicago taxi drivers (you literally get the driver's snap, name, and cab number before arrival), so you can be sure your ride is a safe one — no matter what time you need a lift.
Oh, and that uncomfortable argument with the cabbie who tells you his credit-card machine is broken when you're out of cash? Not here. Hailo has an automatic payment system, so the whole kit and caboodle is already taken care of while your cruising to your destination. You'll even get a receipt emailed on the spot. So, put your hand down. The easiest way to catch a ride is literally at your fingertips.
Download Hailo free from the App Store for iPhone and Google Play for Android devices.
