Taxis were invented to provide easy mobility solutions to riders to commute from one place to another for purposes like work, leisure, etc.
The taxi concept actually goes back to the 1600s when the “taxi” was a horse and buggy. This evolved over time to the four wheelers and trendy yellow cabs. Today, thanks to Uber technology you can get a taxi ranging from economy to luxury, that too in colors that don’t scream taxi.
In the same way, the method of searching and hailing a taxi has also evolved. Before it was cruising the roads for one, or thumbing for one, and ringing the taxi company who would send a taxi out to you when there was one available.
In 2009, a smart new concept of hailing a taxi was invented. This concept was Uber.
Uber worked in a way facilitating transport network between taxi drivers and riders. By integrating services of a mobile app, Uber made it possible for passengers to connect directly with drivers available for a ride. The drivers could be owners of luxury cars like Mercedes Benz, BMW 7, Porsche, and Jaguar as well as the economy ones like Mazda, Ford, etc. Passengers could select the car of their choice and budget and reserve it for a ride on demand. Reserved vehicles can be tracked by passengers.
This is done especially by rider as the ride starts making its way towards the pickup point.
GOODBYE TRADITIONAL TAXIS
The Uber concept created havoc in the traditional taxi industry. People liked the idea of summoning a taxi from their mobile phones in the comfort of their homes with just a few taps, and track it at all times. Riders liked the fact, rides got confirmed with zero unpleasant shows from drivers.
All these factors made Uber taxis popular and traditional taxi users jumping the ship to embrace Uber. Such was Uber’s success that the approximate value is at $70 Million.
INTRODUCING THE UBER CLONE
The phenomenal success of Uber created a new industry, the on demand taxi industry. Everyone wanted to get a piece of Uber’s success.
New taxi businesses also started looking for ways on how they could do this. This furor gave birth to the Uber clone, an app working on the same principle as Uber.

The Uber clone has become the ideal solution for all on demand taxi businesses. It works on the same concept as Uber and has almost the same features as Uber, if not more.

The beauty of these apps is that the business owner now need not invest in a fleet of taxis, radios, office premises, and staff to man the phones.
