Taxi booking app is the one-stop to book a taxi to go from place A to B. It allows users of all ages to book a taxi in a simpler way. 

Taxi booking app bridges the gap between the car owners and car bookers in connecting and booking. The end-users have the choice to choose any type of vehicle – micro, mini, prime – for traveling it. Users who travel to office or wedding ceremonies, they can book anytime and anywhere.  

When you decide to build a taxi booking system, you need to research how to provide a simple and straightforward way to quickly and easily book a taxi. 

Research 

Since the taxi booking app is already present in the market, and many companies are following the trend of its business model, you need to think of a unique selling point to make your business look apart from the competition. 

Gather information on the competitor’s app design and how they funnel the customers into the site. Not everything would be perfect, you may find loopholes on where the customers get disappointed and come out of the app feeling displeased. You can find the problem and implement a practical solution in your taxi booking app. 

Examining User’s Scenario 

Examine user satisfaction ratio and pain points to get insights for designing and building your taxi booking app. 

There are two ways to find that out:

  1. Going through the customer reviews of your competitor’s app 
  2. Interviewing people of all age groups 

Customer Reviews 

Customer reviews enlighten us with the issues and problems customers face in downloading and using the app. 

Issues like: 

  1. Slow performance of the app
  2. Issues in signing into the platform
  3. Unable to book a ride at the correct location 
  4. Not being able to add or make an online payment 

Interviewing people 

Interview people who use the taxi booking app very often and find what they come across the pros and cons of using it. Interview people from all age groups to find their satisfaction and pain points. 

Customer’s Pain Points 

You need to find the customer’s pain points for giving a good solution. 

By doing deep research, we found out major issues and errors faced by the customers and we found these are the legit ones to be definitely addressed. 

Such as: 

1. Showing different prices before and after the booking

Customers would select the pick-up and drop locations and check the estimated price. Seeing the price is reasonable, they book the ride to travel. After they reach the destination, they find the total price is higher than the expected prices.  This causes disappointment to the customer, making them never return to the site. 

2. The App not being understandable to local language

If the users are native speakers, they don’t feel connected or don’t understand how to use the app. 

3. Insecure to make an online transaction

We all know how still people these days feel a little bit of nervousness in making an online payment. 

4. Unwelcoming interface which makes it difficult to book a ride 

If the User Interface design confuses users and doesn’t provide a clear action path to book a ride, then the business is sure to lose potential customers 

Solutions 

Here are the solutions to the above pain points mentioned
