Our idea was that citizens have access to one app for ordering their favorite, or nearest taxi without any difficulties. This way, citizens know exactly which taxi is coming, how long it would take to get there, and receive a notification at the exact moment taxi has arrived at the destination. The waiting period is shortened, and after driving, the client has the opportunity to evaluate the driver, vehicle, and service. With our solution driver’s job is more efficient - the whole communication process is automated. The only thing the driver is required to do is swipe accepting the ride and drive the client to the destination. Automatically, based on the destination location, the app offers the next rides, choosing the nearest clients.

We have begun the development of this app at the time when there was a huge protest of taxi drivers in Belgrade because of the Car:GO platform. At that time our team was developing native apps for drivers and clients ordering rides from drivers, and not only that but a web admin panel for taxi companies. For real-time communication between these apps, we use socket technology. Socket.io has provided us with a great library for mobile applications for these purposes. However, the real challenge was to match sockets and push notifications. It was a great feeling to see an order from the client app to arrive at the driver app in less than 1 second. It was remarkable. From the very beginning, we communicated with the taxi drivers who pointed out their needs and explained what problems exist with the existing solutions. We devoted our time to fix those problems and bring out the functionalities they need. Given that the application is still the MVP, our team is working hard to improve all functionalities and to add new ones that are going to be useful to drivers, customers, but also to taxi companies.
