Due to an ever-increasing number of vehicles on the road, there is unprecedented chaos. It’s not just the traffic jams, but environmental degradation with the toxic emissions from vehicles. In Dhaka city, going to the office, school or anywhere using public transportation is very difficult nowadays.
Gontobbo is a mobile app-based ride-sharing system that has brought a new transportation mode to users. It offers cost-effective and eco-friendly alternatives to a private vehicle. The ride-sharing service doesn’t cover all the areas of Dhaka city. It has its own set routes, and once the passenger sets his/her destination, the app tries to drop the passenger at the nearest drop location. The app is for the people who are headed for the same journey path and the app shortlists the ride seekers accordingly. The move has significantly brought down fares and reduced car emissions as well. It further helps in reducing the travel time of all the passengers.
Ride seekers can easily find the routes and cars to reach their destination on time with safety using this app. Gontobbo allows Ride seekers to select the desired destination and the app matches you with the nearest driver by sharing your location. Once matched, you will receive the driver’s details along with the live location. After accepting the request ride seekers will register with that certain car that goes to the destination route every day and return home safely.
