How to startup a ride sharing app with COVID-19 measures?

Posted by Jennifer Atkinson on June 2nd, 2021

Hi! The pandemic has almost devastated the livelihoods of people, and businesses are struggling to bounce back. We all know that the first victim of the pandemic is the transportation business. As people are staying indoors, the transportation industry has seen a dip in its revenue.

Currently, many parts of the world are slowly recovering from the pandemic and managing to retain their customers. So, if you are a taxi business owner, who is planning to resume your business operations, then you must highly consider some safety measures that have to be implemented. This blog will detail the different safety measures you can handle in order to ensure safe rides for your passengers as well as drivers.

Implement these safety measures in your ride-hailing business

Before divulging into the crux, let us take a glimpse at the importance of integrating a ride-hailing app into your business. As the ride-hailing business is constantly booming with each passing day, digitization is the only way to popularize your taxi business. Do you agree? For that, you can invest in the Uber clone, a white-label taxi app. If you develop and launch an app like Uber, your brand visibility will increase among users, and you can attract them through various promotional activities.

Through your taxi app, you can enable different safety measures, which we will see in this section. Come on!

Face mask recognition - You can integrate your taxi app with a face mask recognizer, which is a beneficial feature. The face mask recognition feature works on the principle of AI that will let you know whether the drivers and the passengers are wearing the mask while taking the ride. Before starting the ride, the driver will have to take the face mask recognition assessment. Only when the app recognizes the face mask, the driver will be able to start the ride.

A limited number of passengers - Your taxi business must highly adhere to the social distancing measure, which will be helpful in curbing the spread of the virus. So, all you need to do is, restrict the number of passengers who take up a ride. For example, if your taxi is a 5 seater, then you must allow only 2 passengers (excluding the driver).

Cancel rides - If suppose your drivers or passengers don’t stick to the safety measures, either of them can cancel the rides.

These are the safety measures you must implement in your taxi business.
