GoMyWay is a location based app that allows users to share taxis. There are many benefits of using GoMyWay. You can now split the cost of a taxi as well as help the environment by sharing resources. This is very useful with the rising costs of taxis, for long journeys or when there are extra taxi charges involved such as airport surcharge, tolls and peak hour surcharge. Also you may be able to save time during peak periods when taxis are scarce. You never know, the other user might be near the front of the taxi queue or has already managed to book a taxi!
Users can simply browse a list of other users looking to catch a taxi. To share a taxi, all you need to do is input your DESTINATION POINT, and the app will quickly generate a list of users within 200m of your current location. This list will automatically rank users according to destination, meaning users who are going to the closest destination point to YOUR intended destination, will show up first and so forth. This allows for maximum savings and minimal travel times.
You can now contact each other through a chat interface for a nominal fee ($0.19-$0.30 US cents depending on how many credits you top up), and arrange a meeting point such as a taxi stand. Other features of this app includes being able to filter users according to gender, and the ability to plan future shared trips in advance. Soon we will launch internationally, so you can choose to share taxis with other users overseas too!
We do take your safety and privacy into serious consideration. Firstly to make contact with other users, you need not share your number as you can do all your communication via our chat interface. We do not share personal information like your name, address and phone number. For female users especially, we have an added feature where you may filter your search according to gender. Other features such as a basic but effective "thumbs up/thumbs down" rating system, can give you an insight into the other user. Obviously avoid users who have too many “thumbs-downs!”
Once you have found your ideal taxi companion, you can enjoy paying less for your taxi trips!
