Atlanta is a great city, but it also seems like you can never find a cab when you need one here. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been stuck on hold after trying to call a taxi company for a ride to the airport, or failed to flag down a cab on the street to get home after a night out. Lucky for us Atlantans, Hailo (which is already in several cities throughout the U.S. and internationally) is here to take the frustration out of hailing a cab when you need one! The app gets you a ride from a licensed taxi driver in just two taps and lets you easily pay through your smartphone.

Hailo launched in Atlanta today, and to celebrate they’re hosting a Free Taxi Weekend from Friday, May 9 through Sunday, May 11. Download the app for iPhone or Android and enter the promo code FTW20 in your account to save $20 off your first Hailo ride. With so many great sporting events, concerts and festivals in Atlanta this weekend, it’s the perfect chance to give it a try.

I tested the Hailo app with a ride to happy hour tonight and was impressed by how easy it was to use. After I opened the app, it instantly showed me my location and that a taxi was two minutes away. I hailed the cab with my iPhone and the name of my driver, Fikadu, and his picture appeared a few seconds later. In less than two minutes a cab drove up. Fikadu said “Hi! Andrea?” and I jumped in.

I tipped my friendly driver from my phone and received an email receipt minutes after the ride ended – so simple and convenient. I think Hailo will be the way I catch cabs from now on!
