TAXI ON THE GO: THE CHANGING FACE OF TRAVELLING USING CABS

Times have changed and so has the approach of people towards travelling in buses, private cars, metros and other modes of transport that are not very convenient. This is the era of the young and energetic and everything is going online, be it online shopping or recharging your mobile.

“Taxi on the go” is the latest fad in the town and with companies like Ola, Taxi for sure and Uber going online, travelling in cabs has become easier than ever before.

HOW MOBILE APPS HAVE CHANGED THE FACE OF TAXI BUSINESS

Gone are the days, when people used to look for taxi stand numbers in the yellow page directories. With the advent of technology, everything has gone online and services like booking a taxi or ordering food have also gone online. Moreover, it’s not just about online websites anymore, it is the generation of mobile applications and everything is just a click away on your smartphone, Android, iOS or Windows.

If you are stuck in office in a chilly winter night or you are travelling alone after a late night party, you do not need to rely on your friends, family or acquaintances to drive you back home. All you need to do is download a taxi app on your mobile like Ola, Uber or Taxi for Sure and you can book a cab in less than 2 minutes by adding your location. The nearest cab drive will confirm your request and you will be dropped at the destination mentioned by you. What can be better than this? You do not even need to direct the driver as GPS systems are installed in the cab and a simply tab on the “Navigation” button can do wonders. Isn’t it really fabulous?

The prices are highly customer friendly and start at Rs 7 per km. (Varies from one company to another)

Just yesterday, I met a taxi driver who is affiliated with all three cab services, Ola, Uber and Taxi for Sure. He now earns more than 75k a month by the commission that he earns from these services.

PROMOTIONAL OFFERS & TIME TO TIME CAMPAIGNS

Another thing that makes these taxi services a success is the on-going promotional offers and festive campaigns that entitle you to big discounts and offers from time to time. For example, the PayTM coupons for Uber, Taxi for Sure and Ola can help you save big on your travelling expenses.

CONCLUSION

If we take everything into account, booking a taxi via app is anytime safer than taking a lift from a stranger or travelling in open modes of transport. Quick and reliable mode of transport along with affordable pricing and offers can do wonders for you!
