Step 2: The next step is matching because the driver wants to accept the client request and also he has the right to decline the customer request if not comfortable with the location.
Step 3: Then the next step is Hosting a ride. If passengers want to share the taxi fare with others they can host a ride broadcasting the route. So that the interested candidates can give the request to the host passenger and share the ride.
Step 4: When the ride begins the host needs to accept the request and two or more members can share the ride with the respective drop points.
Step 5: If your ride is getting over means you need to make payment with cash or other cashless payment like credit cards and so on. Now the ride fare will be partitioned equally or calculated according to the distance of the passenger traveling distance.
Step 6: Users can evaluate the driver. Here passengers can give ratings to each other
