Taxilnk – Student Startup Profile #44

About Taxilnk:

Taxilnk is a transportation app for the taxi industry. It essentially will operate similar to Uber, but the competitive advantage is that with Taxilnk the drivers can see location points where there are multiple customers already waiting – reducing their costs in terms of petrol.

The customers will be able to see available taxis in the area as well as price fares for the trips that they may wish to take. For the drivers to be able to sign up, they will have to have a good driving history and the minibus must be in good condition.

There will be checkups that will be done periodically.
