Business Requirement

  • High percentage of non-revenue trips: Taxi spends half of its operational time on non-revenue trips, and the other half have riding customers. 
  • Commercial viability: Operational cost against revenue is high, which in the long run may limit business development 
  • Technology and innovation: Lack of taxi demand visibility barricades adequate provisioning at the ‘right place’ and at the ‘right time’. 
  • Limited knowledge of the taxi demand: Limited data and visibility resulted in inefficient operations with long passenger wait time and several vacant trips
