Bing Gets a Cab Fare Calculator

How much will that taxi ride cost you? A new Bing Maps application can give you the answer. The Taxi Fare Calculator app was developed by Ricky Brundritt for the King of Bing Maps competition.

As you may imagine, the app lets you enter in a starting address and end address and then see what the cab fare may be, as well as the shortest route. (Quick, we need a mobile version of this for tourists! )

Fare estimates are based on rates for cabs in the area, and include pick-up rates and by-the-miles costs, as applicable.

This map app is actually one of many great entries in the contest, several of which are featured here. Other apps include a “World of Football” app, a data viewer app, a pharmacy finder and more.

But the cab fare is my favorite, maybe it’s yours too?
