  • Drivers need to regularly notify the service about their current location and their availability to pick passengers.
  • Passengers get to see all the nearby available drivers.
  • Customer can request a ride; nearby drivers are notified that a customer is ready to be picked up.
  • Once a driver and a customer accept a ride, they can constantly see each other’s current location until the trip finishes.
  • Upon reaching the destination, the driver marks the journey complete to become available for the next ride.
