Why Have Apps Like Uber And Lyft Become Popular Ride-Hailing Apps?
You must know that before they started with their apps, there were always old players, which can be other huge brands or unorganized sectors. They had to be better and understand the pain points that make them better than the competitors. So, let us talk about Lyft, how it managed to grow, what they were able to bring to the table, and which is better than UBER or unorganized sectors.
Affordable & Easiest Ride Booking – They brought the cleanest and most cost-effective ride booking, which is like you have to enter the place you want to go, and that’s how you get the nearest cab. They made their breakthrough by two things: they broke all the traditional taxi booking mindset with the latest and advanced technology and the easiest and most secure solutions. Secondly, they used the product principle of marketing where they provided lower fares than other competitors, and thus, more and more started using this app.
Analytical Approach – They have not only been able to get the passengers the best facilities, but their CSR activities have also gained real popularity. The vital points or accidents that touched American hearts were there to give the best and most affordable services to those in need.
Out of the Box – They kept the best riding conditions for the riders, like making them the best secure buttons in case of emergency or making them sit on the front seat to have better rider-driver communication. For the riders, they have provided loyalty programs and bonuses and let the driver customize their cars as per their tastes to make them have the best car driving experience.
