Now you can hail a cab with just a text message

text_ladyTexting and driving isn’t specifically illegal in Arizona — yet — but drinking and driving definitely is, which is why cab companies clean up around holidays like the upcoming Labor Day weekend.

Just in time for the party, Discount Cab is rolling out a new service that lets Arizona residents send the company a text message with a pickup address and instantly reserve a ride.

Using you cell phone or smart phone, just text an address to 777222. The request is received by Discount Cab and instantly confirmed. While you wait, you can text STATUS to check on your ride. If you need to cancel the cab ride, simply text CANCEL.

As usual, if you take a Discount cab home after a night on the town, the company will give you a free ride back to your vehicle the next day.
