As all booking is done electronically, we can route-planning technologies developed for delivery vehicles, provided by our strategic partners, to allow us to provide a shared-ride service. Combining that with real- time traffic information and automatic updates from our drivers’ smartphone app platform, we can be sure that our drivers are routed along the best path at any given time. This should allow us to more than make up for any time lost providing shared rides while saving fuel as well.
Electronic payments enable us to reduce in-car transaction times to zero, eliminating time lost to cash exchanges or the slow process of in-car credit card processing, if it is even available. Furthermore, using only electronic payments eliminates the need for drivers and passengers to carry cash. This makes for a much safer experience for drivers and passengers alike.
All together, these advantages mean that we can greatly increase our vehicle occupancy rates and thus dramatically boost revenues while still offering dramatic discounts to passengers while providing them with service that is safer and more enjoyable than a taxi or a bus.
