Our algorithms consider various factors such as the state of charge, shift timings, pick-up point, and more to determine the best trip for each vehicle. Our technology also continuously monitors each ride and promptly alerts operators of any potential risks. Quick Ride is customer-focused, allowing riders to choose their preferred route at the time of booking and even adjust their fare to accommodate specific needs. 

Co-Founder Mr. Vishal said we have been receiving great responses from Commuters and Driver Partners. In addition to our own Electric Vehicle fleet, we have 12000+ attached Taxi Driver-partners in Bengaluru. Unlike many leading taxi companies, we pay 90% of the ride fare to Driver Partner keeping our commissions low and the settlement to driver partners happens immediately after trip completion.  This helps to keep our drivers happy and in turn, gives good service to our customers.
