We require your expertise to build Taxi Booking App like Uber, with the below functionalities
Feature for Both Passenger and Driver App
1. Registration and Authentication
Uber like apps should offer social media and email/password signup and login functionality. Creating a profile, beyond improving customer retention, is required for services that involve mobile payments. As an additional requirement for drivers, profiles should be verified and approved by the service administration.
2. Profile editing
Passengers and drivers should be able to easily edit their own profiles: name, photo, phone number, email, etc. The driver app should also include the driver’s license and information about the vehicle (manufacturer and year of production, car class, color, license plate number) and its photo. Both the driver and the passenger should be able to view each other’s profile. With this information, they can recognize each other at the pickup location. This helps reduce anxiety and gives a sense of security.
Matching allows a passenger to automatically connect to the nearest available driver. It’s a complex algorithm which takes into account several factors: locations of the passenger and nearby drivers (Uber shows up to 8 drivers), drivers’ status and their rating, car models, etc. The driver has a few seconds to accept the request (Uber gives 15 seconds) before it goes to the next driver.
At the heart of a location-based app like Uber is the technology of GPS tracking, around which everything else is built on. It allows to identify current locations of passengers and drivers, draw paths between them, set pickup and drop-off locations, track the movement of cars and even calculate the cost of the ride and the ETA (estimated time of arrival). All these data sets are sent to the server for further processing and broadcasting to other users in that particular area.

6. Evaluating and displaying the cost of a ride
Both the driver and the passenger should know the estimated fare in advance. As we mentioned earlier, calculating the actual fare of the trip is usually performed on the server-side. It may involve the following parameters and factors: the distance between pickup and drop-off locations, cost of fuel, possible discounts, car class, traffic and weather conditions, peak hours etc.
7. Making payments
This is how it works within Uber’s app:
Uber has partnered with Braintree to securely accept payments within the app. All payments are cashless, so when the ride has completed, payment is withdrawn automatically through the payment gateway.
You have to choose PayU Money Payment Integration. We will provide you with the required help for payment integration.
8. Rating and feedback
Passengers and drivers should be able to rate each other after the trip is over. This feature helps maintain a high level of service. Drivers with low ratings will eventually not be able to use the service. If a passenger has a low rating, it can be harder for him to get a ride. Passengers should also be able to provide feedback on their experience during the trip. This feedback will be shown in the driver’s profile for others to view.
9. Booking and payments history
Both drivers and passengers should be able to view detailed statistics about previous trips from their profiles: date, time, cost, driver/passenger name, car model, pickup and drop-off locations, rating etc.
10. Booking cancellation
Drivers and passengers should be able to cancel a ride. In the case of a cancellation, a fee may be charged.
The admin panel is usually a web-based interface that helps manage the entire service: manage back-end settings, manage drivers, passengers, requests, transactions, view passengers and drivers’ activities, statistics, and generate reports.
