InDriver has launched its ride-hailing service in Johannesburg, South Africa, which allows the driver and rider to negotiate lower fares.
A report by IT News Africa says drivers can use the InDriver app to accept or ignore offers as well as negotiate for a higher price.
Rifqa Carr, InDriver spokesperson says: “Drivers have the freedom to choose whichever ride request they like, without any risk of being penalised. They’re also able to see the full fare, from point A to point B, and can then decide if they want to accept the request – or not.”
The app allows passengers to choose a driver based on categories such as fare, driving rating, estimated time or arrival or vehicle model. For safety, the driver and rider can use the app to share their GPS location in real-time with trusted contacts.
Last year, In Driver launched its service in several communities in New York, including Brooklyn, Queens, The Bronx and Staten Island.
