WASHINGTON (WUSA) -- Need a cab? There's now a new app for that.

Wednesday myTaxi launches in DC. It's the first city in the United States to get this popular system from Europe.

The app is free for smart phones.

Riders won't pay any more for their fares than the standard rate. Cabbies will pay 99 cents a ride, starting next year.
