Our smart algorithm provides a ridematch typically within +/- 15 minutes from requested departure time.

Drivers get notification about the order, location and time of passenger pick-ups and riders get actual pick-up time, driver and vehicle details along with vehicle GPS tracking.

Get ready to go

Get ready to go

We'll send you a notification when your driver is ~5 minutes away, so you can wrap up last minute things and make your way to the pick-up location selected by you.

You will get another notification with a 60 second timer to board the vehicle, when your driver arrives at the pick-up location. This minimizes wait time and reduces overall commute time for everyone.
