Multi-Model Selection

In this scenario, a single driver can place his car on multiple models (maximum three) Like Lux-Van, First Class, and Business class. We leveraged implode and explode array in the database so that this flexibility could be achieved. A driver can save his single car in multiple fields.
Roadmap to Uber-Like Taxi App Development

Fare & Distance Count

The client was looking for a flexible solution for the user to display the fares of the nearby taxis as per the category or class. We used the Place API to fetch each car’s fare and location and then we tracked the user’s location and made a custom algorithm by which we calculated the fare and the distance of the taxi and the user.
Request-Re-Routing taxi app features

Request Re-Routing

Client wanted a solution to the annoying problem of finding the taxi again when a driver rejects the request for some reason. What we did is that if a driver declines a request, then the request will be re-routed to the nearest driver available. This is completely done from the backend and the user won’t even be able to notice such process in the background.
