TaxiRide Feature of Mobimatic

Exploring the Taxi App Feature

With this feature you will be able to launch a “Uber-like service” with your app.

To use this feature, you have to create a Google Maps JavaScript API key. Click here to learn how to create this API key.

 

1. First, click on taxi-icon in the “Add pages” part. This will appear:

feature-settings

For now there is no request yet, but let’s have a look at what the “Requests” tab looks like when a ride has been requested:

request

As you can see, you can “Switch info view”. Let’s switch and see what it looks like:

request-2

2. The “Settings” tab is divided in two parts. The first one is for the “General Settings”, and it look like this:

general-settings

 

In this tab you can choose:

  • the distance unit between kilometers and miles.
  • the search timeout
  • the search radius: when a passenger searches for a taxi, you can set a maximum radius around him
  • Stripe Publishable Key and Stripe Secret Key
  • the Payment method: Credit card, cash, or both.

Don’t forget to save when you have set up your settings.

The second part of the “Settings” tab is for the vehicle type:

add-vehicle-type

Let’s add a vehicle type by clicking on add . This appears:

create-vehicle-type

Let’s create a “Tesla” type and add a picture. Now that we have created a vehicle type, we can delete it or edit it from the menu that just appeared:

create-vehicle-type-2

3. The last tab is for “Customers”. It will include the information for the “Drivers” and the “Customers” that created an account in the app. It includes the following information:

For the Drivers:

drivers

  • Name
  • Email
  • Address / City / Zip Code
  • Status: you have to validate the status for the driver before he is allowed to take requests

You can also switch info view to see the following information:

drivers2

For the Passengers:

passengers

  • Name
  • Email
  • Phone number
  • Address / City / Zip Code

How does it work in the application?

First, you have to create an account, whether you are a passenger or a driver. When you create the account, you have to choose between Passenger and Driver. Be careful, once you have created this account, you can not change your status. Passengers are automatically validated, whereas Drivers have to be validated by the admin in the Editor.

Passenger’s side

First, enter your pick up address and your drop off address. A “Go!” button appears.

Click “Go!” to start the search process. First you will have to choose the type of vehicle you want. In this example there is only one type of vehicle, but you can create as many types as you want.

Driver side

The driver can set the price for each kilometer/mile when he creates his driver account in the application.

This is the screen of the driver when he has no ongoing ride.

When a passenger around him requests a ride, this will appear:

When he accepts the request, he has to wait for the client to choose him (or not!):

When the passenger chooses him, the driver goes pick the passenger up. Once the passenger is in the car, the driver has to click on “Aboard” to start the ride.
