The Ride helps you see and book nearby taxis or connect to dispatch, compare cab and transit options, see designated driver services in any city across Canada.
- E-Hailing: See and book a nearby cab with one tap, get driver details and ETA updates until you are picked up in minutes with a notice when your driver arrives and you can rate your ride to make your next ride even better!. You can also pre-book a ride for a later time.
- Connect to First Available Cab Dispatch: Get a ride anywhere. Wherever The Ride’s e-hailing service is not yet available, the app has a direct connection to over 500 fleets and 25,000 licensed drivers in Canada powered by #TAXI (#8294) www.poundtaxi.com .
