When it comes to taxi-app development, there are several options available for building the app. Business requirements formulate the need for building the taxi-booking apps. There are various types of taxi-booking apps available:
Ride-hailing apps: It is one of the popular types that we see in the on-demand taxi sector. The app has a separate user app, driver app, and admin app with features to suit each stakeholder’s needs. Uber and Ola are some of the popular ride-hailing apps.
Shuttle-service apps: The shuttle service apps mainly work based on advanced booking and operate on a fixed location across the city. There is also a private shuttle service, wherein users can use either book or rent a vehicle. For example, there is an airport shuttle service that picks users up from different locations and drops them off at the airport.
Carpooling app: People who are traveling on the same route can connect using the Carpooling app. Revenue of the app is based on the commission it obtains per ride. BlaBlacar is based on the carpooling app model.
