Taxicabs are another great way to get around the District without driving alone or needing to own and maintain a car. In some areas, taxicabs can be easily located and can be hailed by raising your hand while standing on the edge of a curb. In other areas, it is just as easy to get a taxi by calling one of the numerous taxicab companies registered with the DC Taxicab Commission. You can also hail a taxi, ride and pay with your smartphone by downloading the District's official taxi app, DC Taxi. The app is available for download on both iOS and Android smartphones.
