FairCab NYC is the first app to accurately measure cab fare in New York.

Estimate the cost of your trip before you’ve ever hailed the cab and carry your own hand-held meter through your
whole ride. Chart your travel budget over time, or even share your funny cab stories and tips.

Whether you’re a tourist on vacation in the Big Apple or a native New Yorker just trying to get to Brooklyn, with
FairCab you will never be overcharged for a cab ride. This app has been tested throughout the Five Boroughs to
give accurate measurements and can account for traffic, different currency, exchange rates and more. Calculate
the fare from your airport to your hotel, use the meter to determine your fare based on an estimated price, save
the dates and prices of taxi rides you’ve taken, and read and share your NYC cab horror stories and special tips
on how to be an informed taxi goer.

Features include:

The Taxi Meter
Emulate the meter in your cab and calculate your fare while you’re taking your ride. This application keeps track
of your fare the same way that the NYC Taxi and Limo Commission requires your driver to. No more worrying
about a too-high fare, FairCab has got you covered.

The Estimator
Calculate a cab ride before you even get in the cab. Enter your starting point, your end destination, and the time
you wish to leave and FairCab will calculate your estimated fare based on the average taxi price.

My Rides
Track your previous cab rides and see how much money you’ve spent on any given time frame on rides from
here to there. View my Rides in a list format or on a line graph to illustrate your vehicular expenses. Use FairCab
to export a report of the rides you’ve taken and how much you’ve spent for use on your taxes, or reimbursement
from your employer.

Tips/Tales
Share the stories of the worst and best taxi rides, as well as tips about how to effectively get your money’s worth
in the city that never sleeps. FairCab isn’t only the best utility app for NYC, it’s also a social app that can keep you
entertained on your stop-and-go cab rides.

    Hugely useful, but keeps using GPS even when closed, causing increased and unnecessary battery drain. This is very easy to fix so please do!

    Great app. Does underestimate if you lose connectivity (going through a tunnel) but otherwise spot on

    Estimator doesn't let you enter intersections and therefore doesn't work. What New Yorker tells the cabbie the exact address? Horrible!
