In order to compete in the "New York Challenge", which aims to crown the best cab driver in New York City, players start out in a traditional yellow cab and start serving customers in the Lower East Side and Bowery area. After four shifts (morning, daytime, evening, and night) have been completed, more districts and vehicles open up. For the final shifts, players will be able to choose from four different vehicles (two taxicabs and two sports cars), and have access to all of lower Manhattan. Winning the Challenge will unlock additional timed and free cruise game modes.

There are four different power-ups to be picked up: turbo boost, jump, cannon, and vehicle repair. Performing stunts can entice passengers to pay tips, but after too many crashes, they might leave the car without paying anything at all. In multiplayer mode, players can partake in waypont races, or compete for passengers by trying to steal them from slowly moving enemy cabs.
