You pay a lot to sit in the back seat of that taxi. Why not add a passenger and save some money? GobiCab is an iPhone app that allows users to find riders to share a taxi cab with.

Every day millions of people pay full fare for taxi trips. GobiCab lets you save money and time. Simply tell GobiCab where you are going and when. GobiCab will find other riders with similar trips.

You can browse potential matches and chat with them directly through the app to keep “Stranger Danger” anxiety at bay. Pick a rider, and split the cab fare.

Sharing cabs means fewer carbon emitting trips, so using GobiCab is environmentally friendly, too.
