The Indian state of Goa enables its citizens and tourists to make smart transportation choices with the help of their new app-based taxi service. All you have to do is go on the app and rent a car or bike and go about your business. However, what occurs when you don’t know how, or can’t ride a bike or drive a car? Goa hopes to save you time and money searching for that solution with their new app.
Goa remains one of the few Indian states — and probably the only major tourist destination — that doesn’t allow Uber and Ola Cabs. However, the state government of Goa recently launched a new app-based taxi service called GoaMiles. Run by a local company called Frotamiles, the GoaMiles app also has the backing of the Goa Tourism Development Corporation.
How to use the GoaMiles app
Starting August 6, you can book a cab on the GoaMiles app exactly like you would on the Ola or Uber app. A few taps and you’re good to go. On the GoaMiles app, you also have the option of booking services such as a rapid city transfer, booking a tour, airport transfer and women-only taxi services. The categories available on the GoaMiles app include hatchbacks, sedans, and SUVs. You can track your taxi in real time as you wait for your driver to arrive. You can pay for your ride with cash or online, using a debit/credit card or by adding money into your GoaMiles balance. Like other app-based taxi services, the GoaMiles taxi also has a panic button to ensure the safety of passengers and to avail help in emergency scenarios.
