At YellowPages.com, type "taxi" in the What Do You Want to Find box on the main page, and then select Taxi Cabs on the drop-down menu. Type your ZIP code in the Near box, and then click the search icon to display a listing. Consider choosing a company with a high average customer rating, such as four or five of five possible stars.

At AppCrawlr.com, type "taxi finder" in the search box near the top of the main page, select your mobile device type, and then click the Go button to display a list of apps. If desired, click the Free check-box near the top of the page to display only those apps that are available free or charge. Click an app to display details about the app, including user reviews and ratings. Click the Download button to download the app on your smartphone. The "Taxi Finder + HD Lite" app is free, well-rated, finds taxis in most areas of the United States and is available for iOS, Android and Windows Phone.

At Uber.com, click the Sign Up button near the top-right of the main page to set up a free account and download the company's smartphone app. You can then use Uber's app to find rides that are sometimes much cheaper than rides with other local taxi services.
