Cabbie is a platform that brings together taxi drivers with riders in Nairobi

Package name: com.cabbie.passenger

Cabbie is a technology platform that brings together taxi service providers with riders provided by or on behalf of Cabbie Technologies, company registered in Nairobi

The personal transportation industry has undergone drastic changes in recent years with the introduction of application-based taxi and car service hailing systems. Cabbie has made structural changes to an old industry that functioned much the same way it did decades ago, with individuals in need of a cab having to either physically wave at a taxi at the street corner or call a local car service to reserve a car at least half an hour prior to the pickup time. We have made it possible to secure a car or taxi from a smartphone from any location.

Instead of chasing down a taxi on a metropolis street or hopelessly praying for one to miraculously pass by their location in the suburbs or calling and waiting half an hour for a car service, Cabbie App users are now able to hail a car from any location and have a car ready within minutes. Because the passenger's credit card is linked to the Cabbie account, no cash changes hands, which means that payments don't have to be processed immediately. Upon arrival at the destination, the driver brings the ride to a halt and the passenger can simply walk out the car. The cash Riders are not locked out either as they are the majority. For Rider with expense accounts, an email receipt is sent, and life gets much easier because there’s no need to collect and track paper receipts. Once drivers accept the assignment, the Riders are able to track the drivers’ position and route, and communicate with their drivers if necessary. A driver only learns the passenger’s destination when the tallying of the fare starts, and thus, this takes care of the problem of being refused access to a taxi when traveling to undesirable parts of town. Unprofessional drivers are weeded out because Riders get to rate the driver’s performance, and a consistently low rating will force a driver out of Cabbie platform.

Safety is the most important advantage for drivers working with Cabbie. Because the transaction is cash-less, a driver needs not worry about unpaid fares and needs not carry any sizable amount of cash that might entice a robber. Unlike other taxi drivers who work by 12- hour shifts or drivers who are scheduled by dispatch, Cabbie drivers enjoy greater freedom and flexibility. Drivers can log in and off the system anytime and can choose to strategically allocate their work hours and efforts in any manner that best meets their goals and circumstances. Drivers can avoid the expensive taxi rental leases by acquiring their own vehicles; that means more profit for drivers, all else being equal. Drivers are also spared the stress caused by favoritism and office politics, because the application renders dispatchers irrelevant. Rude, aggressive and disruptive Rider are also weeded out the Cabbie network because, in the same way that Rider can rate their drivers, drivers can rate their customers, and consistently low ratings or reports of unsafe behaviors towards drivers can cause de-activation of an account by Cabbie.
