We’re excited to announce the launch of Curb Flow. This innovative API offering is set to significantly improve drivers' income opportunities and create a seamless experience for riders. Instead of a revolutionary overhaul, it offers a smart evolution, bringing together various ride sources to enhance booking rates, promote fairness among drivers, and elevate the overall quality of on-road services.
A Unified Ecosystem of Ride-Demand Sources
Curb Flow represents a fundamental shift in the ride-hailing industry by consolidating street hails, fleet dispatches, and app bookings while integrating additional ride requests from multiple sources into Curb's expansive network. This comprehensive approach aims to benefit both drivers and riders, providing a unified ecosystem that promises to enhance urban transportation.
Strong Industry Partnerships
The launch of Curb Flow is accompanied by a roster of formidable industry partners, including Uber, Sentry, Trapeze Group, Kinetik Care, the Department of For-Hire Vehicles (DFHV), and the Washington Metropolitan Area Transportation Authority (WMATA). These collaborations underscore Curb's commitment to establishing an efficient and dependable ride-demand ecosystem nationwide.
Curb's recent partnership with Uber in Washington DC further solidifies its position as a key player in the ride-hailing industry. This strategic alliance enhances the ride-hail landscape, delivering numerous benefits to both drivers and riders in the nation's capital.
Curb Flow in Washington DC
In Washington DC, Curb has been selected as the universal e-hail app in partnership with taxi operator Transco and the DFHV. Transco, the recipient of a grant from DFHV for its universal e-hail app program, has chosen Curb as its technology provider. This partnership means that riders in Washington DC now have even more convenient and reliable taxi service options at their disposal.
Using the Curb app, riders can request taxis on-demand or schedule them in advance, with the added advantage of seeing the total price upfront before confirming their bookings. The 'Pair & Pay' feature enables riders to seamlessly pay for taxi rides they hail on the street. By pairing their app with the in-cab screen, payment is automatically processed at the end of the ride, simplifying the entire experience.
A Testament to Growth and Innovation
Amos Tamam, CEO of Curb, is enthusiastic about the company's continued success in Washington DC and its broader growth trajectory. He remarked, "DC has become a leading market for Curb, and we're extremely proud of our continued success in the area. Working with Transco and the DFHV to expand our reach and establish Curb as a universal e-hail app solution will only improve our service to riders and drivers alike. This achievement also reflects our overall growth as a company, as we continue to innovate and streamline transportation across all our operating markets."
In summary, the launch of Curb Flow represents a significant step forward in the ride-hailing industry. With its commitment to enhancing driver earnings, forging partnerships with industry leaders, and expanding its services, Curb is poised to continue transforming urban transportation in North America. Riders and drivers can anticipate a more efficient, convenient, and enjoyable ride-hailing experience with Curb Flow.
