Days are gone when hiring a taxi was a hectic process. People had to yell or hail taxi after waiting for a long time in the spot. Adding sophistication to the process of booking taxi, the web based solutions were introduced. This allowed users to make a call and still wait till the car arrives. The company has to trace the nearest taxi by calling the drivers in order to allot the taxi to the particular passenger. In most of the cases, the passenger has to make advance booking before half-an-hour which is tedious waiting time for the passenger.
Some of the disadvantages of web-based taxi booking are:
# Cost of SMS or call is charged
# Waiting period still exist till taxi reaches place
# Minimum half-an-hour for advance booking
# Communication between company and passenger is not effective
