Whether you want to get from one place to another, order food from a restaurant, or find out where your parcel is, all you need to do is take your smartphone and open the right app. Today, a mobile application is the fastest and easiest way to use transportation services. That’s why every business, be it a ride-sharing start-up or an international logistics company, sooner or later arrives at the idea of building its own app and needs to understand how much it will cost them.
Transportation apps and how they help
Transportation is a huge industry that comprises many different fields, and each of them requires an application with certain functionality. Transportation apps vary depending on the service and role they perform for a business. Let’s look at the most popular types of transportation solutions.
On-demand transportation apps
On-demand applications provide users with immediate access to a service by connecting them with service providers. Thus, if you’re tapping into a taxi service, in most cases, you need a ride right away, that is, this service should be on-demand. This app category embraces ride-hailing, ride-sharing, public mobility, Mobility as a Service (MaaS), and courier services that allow users to:
- give, get, and share rides
- book seats on public transport
- pay for rides online
- order food and goods delivery
