Uber Paris Motorcycle Taxi
It used to be that in the good old days in Paris, you could flag down a taxi by just holding up your hand in the street. But that was a long time ago, and nowadays you need to reserve taxis by using complicated phone-in procedures, or for the more modern companies, a dedicated web service.

Even motorcycle taxis don't escape this process.

But the smartphone app Uber Open Uber link in a new window is changing this. Available for iPhone and Android devices, you can not only reserve a motorcycle taxi (and normal car taxis) in Paris, but also pay for it using the app. So you don't need to bring your money with you to pay the cab, it will be charged automatically.

At this moment, the app will only work for select motorcycle taxis in Paris, France, but since the app knows where you are physically, reserving a taxi is easy, and you know what it's going to cost you. You can even see where the motorcycle is at this moment, and the app will tell you how long before the motorcycle arrives.

You can not reserve in advance at this moment, it's just on-demand. The service is currently only available from Monday to Friday between 6 in the morning and 9 at night.
