Go to war against the more expensive taxis: Share the bill with other

When numerous, wet christmas parties in the coming weeks put the city down, comes the return voyage might have to be done with a new Danish service. And for a cheaper price than the several taxi companies just put up to.

In any case, if you live in greater Copenhagen, where an app with the name CabShare soon be launched.

It began with the fact that I and my girlfriend landed in Porto.

- Here we were then to midnight at the airport, where we had to find a taxi into town, telling the director of the Cab-Share, Henrik Paltoft idea to Ekstra Bladet.

There was the 80-metre queue, which only moved very slowly, because many of the wagons drove off with just a single customer. Even if several customers surely were the same way.

It is both expensive and environmentally foolish, when you can instead share a cart. And it is precisely the idea behind the CabShare, which you can use to find others in the area, there must be in the same direction as yourself.

- We have made an algorithm, which is most logical puts the customers together.

- For it makes of course no sense if you end up having to run the length and breadth of the city with too many detours. So, you're going to pay too much.

Pay via the app

At the launch of the CabShare do customers even parts of the bill out from the proposal, which the app provides. For example, with MobilePay or cash.

But the plan is that there soon may be integrated into a betalingsmodul, then the payment can be done directly in the app.

in Addition to match the right person to share a taxi, distributes the also the bill in a fair way.

It is done by calculating the planned route, but also by the amount on the taximeter be entered into the app, each time the set of passengers.

- In this way, it will be all the time a current calculation of how big a share each should pay, explains Henrik Paltoft, who also has a bid on, how big the savings can be.

- It is typically between 30 and up to 60 percent per. user.

It will not be free to use the CabShare, as each passenger must pay $ 10 per. trip to use the service.

Yet Henry Paltoft sure that both the customers and the taxi companies can get pleasure from the system.

- I believe that it can be a good business for taxabranchen, because they get longer trips and not lose customers, who instead had taken the subway, a bus or a pirattaxa.

- They can't reach back and retrieve more customers.

- You also run fewer kilometres on the road and get a less expense, than the trip to be completely alone.
