AutoNavi announced that its taxi-hailing services are now finally available. AutoNavi has taken this step to especially cater to the elderly, and help them with both booking a taxi, and take them to their destination, safe and without any hassle. The new taxi-hailing service now comes with the new “one key taxi” function that is designed for the elderly.
The “one-key taxi” makes it easier for anyone to book a taxi. Moreover, this function does not require the user to enter the start and destination points. AutoNavi is hoping that with the help of the new function it will help the elderly to find their way in unfamiliar environments, especially at moments when they feel they are lost.
As mentioned above, the “One-key taxi” does not require the users to put in the starting point, and it would be of immense help for those who find themselves in unfamiliar territories. In Alipay or WeChat’s “High German Taxi” app, click the “one-click ride-hailing” function will automatically recommend pick-up locations without having to enter the pick-up location manually, and the location will be shared with the driver to make the pick-up. After the driver arrives, the user can disclose the drop-odd destination, and at the end of the trip, the user can choose to pay either in cash or non-cash.
As per the reports, AutoNavi has access to more than 60 partners on the taxi-hailing platform. As for the aim of AutoNavi, an official person disclosed, “Auto-Taxi is the first integrated taxi-hailing platform in China.
It hopes to provide support to traditional travel companies from the three dimensions of connection, technology, and ecology’, providing one-stop services for travel companies, and help traditional travel companies to achieve online and offline depth. Integrate and jointly create a new travel ecology.” The effectiveness of the new service is yet to be unveiled.
