Home Drivers Passengers


ZabKab and ZabKab Driver were developed in 2012 by Flatiron Apps LLC, a company with bright, hardworking people in the heart of the Flatiron district of Manhattan. We create elegant solutions to simplify your life, so you have more time to go out and enjoy it!

We know firsthand the challenges that cab drivers and passengers face in making fast, easy connections. We built ZabKab and ZabKab Driver as companion applications for use on a variety of mobile devices. They work together to help passengers find taxis – and taxi drivers to find passengers – quickly and easily.

Passengers extend their hail electronically with a simple press of a button. GPS technology identifies their location, and an icon appears on the map of cab drivers’ mobile devices, letting drivers know right where passengers need to be picked up.

It’s a win-win for everyone. Hard-working cab drivers earn more money by spending less idle time looking for passengers. Passengers get where they need to go more efficiently without any change to their fare. ZabKab and ZabKab Driver are currently available for iPhone, iPad, and Android.

We beta launched with great success in August 2012. ZabKab was the first and only Taxi App rolled out in New York City. Thousands of Drivers signed up in New York and so did tens-of-thousands of consumers (see YouTube for TV coverage of ZabKab). Unfortunately one month later New York’s Taxi and Limousine Commission (TLC) decided to shut us down, and any other potential providers, when Uber followed our lead but did not abide by TLC’s regulations. For nine months, until May 2013, there was a moratorium (and lots of law suits) until TLC allowed App providers back into the market if they licensed through them. There were two problems for us as a start-up. 1) it was very expensive and the process tilted only to companies with lots of capital and personnel 2) we did not like the degree of information we would have to provide the local government including personal data about each user on a monthly basis. We are re-grouping and deciding if we can financially start again. If so, our intent is to resume rolling out across the U.S. and globally. We continue to see downloads in 70+ countries around the world daily as people look to our idea.
