Here in Our Town, we like to keep things as easy (read: lazy) as possible. Why take the train when a cab will pick you up? And why take the time and energy to go hail one in the street when you can summon one with a simple text message?
That’s the idea behind GoFastCab, a new service to Chicago that makes getting a cab as easy as sending a text. Just send a text message with your address and city/zip code to 777222 (777CAB) and they’ll dispatch a ride ASAP. They’ll even send you a confirmation text so you know one is on the way and give your cab’s status if you text “STATUS” to the number.
Chicago is only the third market to offer this service (L.A. and San Diego were first) so we can be cutting edge in our laziness.
