From ordering pizza to booking a daily commute, we all rely on on-demand mobile applications. [I couldn't end the day without them!]

But it all began in March 2009, when Uber launched its ride-hailing services in San Francisco, California.

Online taxi services are becoming increasingly popular because they are convenient, inexpensive, and simple to use. The proportion of Americans who use ride-hailing services has significantly increased. 

According to Statistica, the revenue in the Ride-hailing & Taxi segment is projected to reach US$61.91bn in 2022. And, revenue is expected to show an annual growth rate (CAGR 2022-2026) of 4.72%, resulting in a projected market volume of US$74.45bn by 2026.

This article describes the top 5 taxi booking apps which are mostly used in the US.

#1. Uber

You already guessed it, Right? Yes! Uber app is in the first position. 

Uber is one of the most used and popular taxi booking apps in the USA. As the pioneer of the taxi industry, the Uber taxi app is used by millions of people every day. Uber has grown its business by executing strong marketing strategies and collaborating with other companies.

However, it has faced competition from both smaller startups and large corporations. Nonetheless, Uber remains a dominant player in the taxi booking app market and is expected to expand further in the coming years.

#2. Lyft

Lyft is the 2nd largest ride-hailing app after Uber. They started out as a long-distance ride-sharing service for college students. They then focused on providing short-distance transportation within the city.

Lyft, like Uber, used demand-based pricing during peak hours and expanded its monetization through various services such as carpooling called Lyft Line, self-driving cars, and ride-hailing apps. Lyft also provides a few ride options, such as Lyft Lux rides, Lux Black, and Lux Black XL, with different price points based on car size.

#3. Curb

Curb- A small juggernaut based in California that is rapidly expanding! Curb is the most popular taxi app in the United States. Curb caters rides through over 50,000 taxis with the proposition “Easily request and Contactlessly pay for rides.”

Curb has a few interesting facts worth mentioning:

  • Curb fares are calculated dynamically based on live and historical trip data collected after hundreds or thousands of trips.
  • In NYC, Boston, Philadelphia, Miami, and Las Vegas, Curb has a “Pair and Pay” feature that allows you to pay via the app after entering a matching code for your chosen Taxi Cab.
  • Because rates are typically regulated by the local transportation commission, there is no surge pricing.

#4. Wingz

When it comes to the top taxi booking apps in the US, you do not want to miss the Wingz app. It is a San Francisco-based ride-hailing app. It provides transportation services for events, airports, doctor's apartments, business meetings, and more.

Wingz covers more than 16 metro areas and is linked to 21 airports. The best part is that the price does not fluctuate dramatically. Riders can select their drivers for upcoming rides.

#5. Gett

Gett is one of the best taxi booking apps in the US. It is an Israel-based app, that operates in the United States, Britain, Russia, and Israel. Gett's consistent pricing, which avoids demand-based charges during peak hours, makes it the winner when traveling internationally.
