You Can Now Hail an Awami Taxi from Anywhere

Awami Taxi is a ride hailing service from Pakistan. The company believes in providing quality transportation with affordable pricing.

To stand out from the competition, any company needs to have a unique selling point. In this respect, Awami Taxi offers something that other ride hailing services do not.

Awami Taxi is a product of I and Zee Software Solutions SMC-PVT LTD, a Pakistani startup based in Islamabad.

Hop In Service

Awami Taxi’s Hop In service will make hailing your ride even more easier. With Hop In, Awami Taxi drivers can pick a ride from anywhere, while customers can hail a ride by spotting it, without any need to book it in advance.

For example, consider these scenarios:

  • a person doesn’t have access to internet,
  • their cell phone battery is dead,
  • that person doesn’t have a smart phone.

If a customer faces any of these scenarios, there is no way they can use a ride hailing service normally.

But with Hop In service, Awami Taxi claims that it has a solution. If you have any of the above problems, you can still hail a ride with Awami Taxi.

You just need to catch any Awami Taxi Car on the road, ask the driver to start the ride and you are good to go. You will be charged as per existing rates for Awami Taxi’s ECO & ECO+ plans without any additional charges.

To spot these cars easily, Awami Taxi-powered cars can be easily identified using special stickers installed in the front and back screens of their fleet. The stickers can help riders identify both Hop In and regular Awami Taxi rides.

No Peak Time Charges

Awami Taxi also claims that they don’t charge customers based on peak hours or any other hidden charges. With this ride-hailing service you never have to pay extra based on the peak hours.

Vendor Earnings

Awami Taxi believes that in ride hailing business all of the hard work is carried out by the car owners and drivers.

Unlike other ride-hailing services, Awami Taxi doesn’t charge any percentage from what vendors/cars owner earn, instead they offer a special scheme.

The drivers keep everything they earn. Awami Taxi only takes out a flat Rs 3,000/month from what the drivers on its platform earn.
