From the agricultural revolution to the industrial revolution and now the technological revolution, all these revolutions took place because they helped ease a particular burden off people’s life. The taxi business has been around for quite some time now and we all agree; it is a vital service to us who don’t own cars but may be unable to use public transport or just don’t like the hustles of public transportation.
We interact with technology on our day to day activities and we all agree it has made life easy in one way or another. I feel it’s high time we fully integrate technology and the taxi business and these are my reasons why:
Have you ever been in a new place where you know no one and have no clue where to get a cab? Personally, I have. At that particular moment, I wish my phone could help me google where I can find a cab but sad thing is in such instances, google can’t help. Thanks to taxi mobile apps, I no longer worry. When I need a cab, I can use the app to get one with ease.
The beauty of these taxi mobile apps is that it calls for a cab closest to you to come for you. This saves you the hustle of calling you cab guy who you have on speed dial and him taking hours trying to find his way to where you are because he is not familiar with that particular place.
Taxi apps have gone a long way into instilling professionalism among taxi drivers. With these taxi apps, you the client have the power to rate a taxi driver’s services. This means a cab driver must strive to make your trip as enjoyable as possible for you to give him good ratings. With good ratings, a taxi driver is usually given priority over other taxi drivers whenever a client calls for a taxi using the app.
Fair pricing. Taxi apps do charge clients depending on time taken by the client to reach their destination. Taxi drivers therefore have no room to overcharge their services and this makes most clients prefer using taxi apps whenever they need taxi services.
For taxis to qualify to be members of a particular taxi app, there are certain standards that they must attain. The drivers must have the right driving credentials, the taxi must be well insured and must attain a certain level of comfortability. This means that whenever a customer calls for a taxi service, the taxi apps have already ensured that the taxi that will came for them is of good standard and comfortable.
With that said, I am sure you can agree with me that taxi apps are important and they not only make it easy for us to access taxi services but also are also cheaper, secure and comfortable
