Taxi App Solution

The mobile app market is oversaturated with a sea of apps where big fishes easily eat the little fishes. In a pool of apps, start-ups can create a distinctive value proposition in the app by adding new features such as taxi-hailing services. You might be wondering, but the leading apps like- FourSquare, Starbucks, TripAdvisor, Bravo, StubHub, Surge, Amazon Echo, and Momento leveraged the same strategy to get ahead of the pack.

But, adding a taxi booking services feature to the app is a time-consuming and expensive approach. That’s where Uber API alleviates the need to build the ride-booking feature from scratch and allow the businesses to get the feature integrated without reinventing the wheel. 

It’s an excellent opportunity! Want to know more? Let’s dig deeper to know about Uber API integrations:

Since 2014, Uber has unveiled its services gates to the market through Uber API release for the public to expand to new markets, onboard new talent, and grow the development community. 

There are different ways in which Uber integration is possible that are:

Deeplink: The Deeplink can be easily integrated with your existing app with the painless design and interface customization options, which launches the Uber app directly from the app.

Button: This method allows Uber service integration with the least development efforts where the Uber request ride feature gets enabled and Button will showcase the ride’s fare and directly transfer the users to the Uber app. 

Client libraries: This option allows the developers to use Uber’s SDK for creating the custom end-to-end experiences for users with different Uber features. 

A quick look at what’s behind the scene- Uber API:

Uber has RESTful API which provides an interface through which the applications or components interact with each other. REST is an architectural style for writing the API that enables the use of any programming language to code or to change the parts of the application. The high degree of customization options and easy integrations allow Uber API fits well in various coding environments. It sounds interesting!

So, it’s good to invest the time in exploring Uber API offerings:

  • Rides Uber API 

The Uber ride request feature can be enabled in the app with Rides API where the booking features will be placed or a link to the Uber app is displayed. The app will make the ride-booking request to the Uber on behalf of the users. 

  • Drivers Uber API 

Using the drivers API, the customized services can be developed which enhance the developer’s experience and increase productivity. Under the technical documentation, after the driver’s permission, the developers will have access to the driver’s profile and driving activity that enables a smooth ride-booking facility.   

  • Uber API for Business

The leading enterprises have access to the business API which allows them to access automation services such as billing systems, reporting systems, user management, and more. 

  • Uber Rush API

This Uber API modernizes the on-demand logistics services with real-time tracking, signature confirmation, and other features.
