About The Project

The client approached us with the unique idea for developing a taxi booking app for drivers and passengers of Tanzania. You may think what is so unique about it; there are lots of taxi-hailing apps that serve the same purpose.

The uniqueness wasn’t in the business idea but the execution of the idea. The client had a different vision for this taxi management app development project.

He wanted to make a few new features for the drivers and passengers besides the usual ones provided by other taxi booking apps. He insisted on adding new features like Trip to Destination and Nearby destination, which addresses and solves problems occurring to drivers.

He was clear about developing a taxi management solution with complete care and needed the mobile app with an attractive user interface (UI) and robust user experience (UX). He wanted the native app for both leading platforms – iOS and Android.

Driver App Features

  • My Bookings – Know about your past, current, and future bookings from the driver app logs.
  • Geo Location – Get the exact location of the passengers through Google map and the best route to get there in time.
  • Trip to Destination – This new feature allows the driver to take a break for the fixed amount of hours. In this time, the driver can get the rides that are only located to nearby predefined radius by the admin (taxi fleet owner).
  • Near-By- Destination – Another new feature solves an issue for the driver by getting notified about new riders near the drop location while he is about to complete the current trip. This reduces the wait time for the next ride after the current one is complete.
  • Customer Rating – The driver can also give reviews to the customers as the customers do. This way, other drivers can stay away from troublesome customers.
  • In-App Wallet –This feature allows the driver to check balance and transfer the money from the app wallet whenever needed.
  • Hold Trip – If a rider wants to stop anywhere, then the driver can hold the trip, and the waiting charge will be added on the final trip amount making sure the driver doesn’t incur any loss.

How We Contributed & Built the Best Taxi App?

When we were approached for this project, our team of backend and frontend development was thrilled to work on it. We always wanted to build an all taxi management solution for a startup in the African continent; this was our first.

The challenges we faced were expected. It was exciting for us to develop new features given by the client that was unheard of till then.

As always, our team handled the project strategically and succeeded in it. The client was especially thrilled seeing the work of our UI/UX designers. They did a great job in developing the initial design idea to wire-frame and then to the final design.

We integrated the M-Pesa mobile banking service, which simplifies the process of transferring and receiving money in the wallet. With this feature, TanTaxi brought the people of Tanzania a gift in the form of cashless money transfer in taxi booking service.
