It has a unique feature in the form of a private/sharing ride option. The transport app development allows riders to earn a certain amount of disposable income during their commute journeys if they opt for a ride sharing option.

It also helps people with bulky items, old adults, and parents or guardians with kids, minors traveling alone.

Project Challenges

  • To be among the best ride sharing apps, our client needed an online transportation business model different from Uber-like apps.
  • To build a sophisticated ride sharing service we had to curate filters for ride options like private/ sharing with extensive algorithms to protect the individual’s identity as well as validate their “call to action” in the online transport platform.
  • To generate an automatic request for preferred riders in the same vicinity was a complex functionality of this app.
  • Seamless functionality of the offline driver validation feature on the online ride-sharing platform.

Our developed taxi app solution has automated daily operations like bookings, payments, managing daily work reports, salaries & commissions, ratings and reviews for a specific task from the client.

Taxi Booking App

Abstract

Based in Virginia, the USA, our client wanted to develop an on-demand taxi app like Uber that allows people in Virginia to book a cab from one place to another with just a few clicks on the screen. Considering his requirements, we designed and developed ride sharing app that made it easy for Virginia people to book a ride anytime and anywhere.

This online taxi app solution comes with the most unique concept of ride-sharing, so people who are daily driving from the same route for their office or any other work can share their availability in the driver’s app and take rides of the same route. For example, if one user is daily going from point A to point B route and he wants to share his ride with another person, who is also going in the same direction, he can share his availability in the app.

Moreover, this custom taxi app solution is completely safe and secure as it performs intensive background checks on drivers before they drive for this taxi app solution. To run background checks, this cab booking app uses a third-party company to ensure that drivers are meeting the state and national safety standards and protecting both of their drivers and riders.

Designing the Ride Sharing App

When it came to designing such a sharing and carpooling app, we designed it keeping certain criteria in mind.

Navigation

User-friendly navigationWhen it comes to a transport app, it is very essential to create intuitive functionality. The people booking cabs are always in a hustle of reaching somewhere, so we had to keep the features seamlessly integrated with each other so that they can navigate easily in the app.

User interface

Simple user interfaceTo develop commute apps Lyft, Curb, Juno, we had to design a simple UI that can clearly state each and every feature and in-app navigational directions. So, we decided to design the most minimalistic and simpler app design.

User experience

Private ride

Payment mode

Secure payment modesMultiple payment options that allow riders to pay online through credit card/debit card, e-wallet, or cash. They can choose any mode as per their convenience. There are no chances of surge pricing. Users can easily know the fares cost estimation or money to travel in a particular area or vicinity.

To generate such functionality a complex algorithm was set in the app and the feature was made accessible by placing the navigational buttons at the right places for the users to book ride-sharing services easily.
