Getting around New York City can definitely be an expensive proposition if you're not careful finding the most cost-efficient mode of transportation. But MyTrip app is looking to make that a bit easier.
After starting the app, the app can either determine your location, or it can be inputted manually. You’ll then select a final destination.
When that's complete, MyTrip App will provide information about the approximate costs of the trip from Uber, Lyft, and even the price of a NYC Yellow Taxi. The approximate taxi prices are made with machine learning, and is definitely a great option.
For both Uber and Lyft, you can view multiple types of rides from the most inexpensive to something fancier and more expensive.
Once you’ve select a ride, simply tap the choice and it will open the Uber or Lyft app so you can make an official request to be picked up.
The MyTrip App is designed for the iPhone and can be downloaded now on the App Store for free.
Especially for visitors who don't want to take the subway system, this looks to be a perfect app for getting around New York City without spending a fortune. I’d definitely like to see an app like this for other major cities in the United States.
