limo and its competitors have several distinct advantages over traditional taxis:
PROFESSIONAL SERVICE: -
In major cities like Abuja and Lagos where the taxi industry is regulated, most cars are later models, well maintained and chauffeured by professional drivers who have proper commercial insurance coverage.
Once a driver accepts an assignment, passengers are able to track a driver's position and route and communicate with their driver if necessary. A driver only learns the passenger’s destination when the fare starts. This takes care of the problem of being refused access to a taxi because the passenger wishes to travel to undesirable parts of town.
Unprofessional drivers are weeded out because passengers get to rate the driver’s performance. A consistently low rating will force a driver out of limo or its competitors.
COMPETITIVE PRICING: -
Generally, limo is less expensive than traditional taxis and car services.
SAFER AND MORE FLEXIBLE FOR DRIVERS: -
Safety is the most important advantage for drivers working with limo or other e-hail services. Because the transaction is cashless, a driver doesn't face unpaid fares or need to carry a sizeable amount of cash that might entice a robber.
Rude, aggressive, and disruptive passengers are weeded out because drivers can also rate their customers. Consistently low ratings or reports of unsafe behavior toward drivers can cause deactivation of an account.
Drivers can log in and out of the system anytime and choose their own hours.
Drivers can avoid expensive taxi rental leases by acquiring their own vehicles. This means more profit for drivers, all else being equal. Drivers are also spared the stress caused by favoritism and office politics because the app renders dispatchers irrelevant.
