But thanks to the fact that there are loads of people with some free time and others willing to save some money, we've now got this tool. Thanks to this app, you can find out if there's any Cabify driver willing to take you where you need to go, the cost of the journey and the kind of vehicle available. Once you order the taxi, you can see how it approaches your position in real-time. In general, all journeys are cheaper than traditional taxis, which is one of the reasons of its success.
