When a person requests a ride using the smartphone app, drivers bid against one another for the ride.

The app is available for iOS and Android devices. The service says it has 150 drivers signed up. Uber, which has been in Pittsburgh for more than three years, has more than 4,000 drivers, according to a company spokesman. CabbyGo drivers keep 90 percent of the fare and get to choose their rides and set prices, according to the company. Uber and Lyft launched in Pittsburgh in early 2014. zTrip launched in 2016.
