Implements a new function to propose an efficient route by adjusting the riding position!
With this collaboration, in the “NAVITIME” app, a new function will be added to notify you if the travel time can be shortened by changing the taxi’s boarding position. When specifying the current location on the taxi dispatch reservation screen on the “NAVITIME” application, display words such as “If you get in from the opposite lane, you can arrive approximately 5 minutes earlier”. In addition, it is a system to notify when it is better to change the boarding position, such as being designated as a narrow road or an expressway, and it can be used as an aid in the decision making of the boarding position of the user. JapanTaxi is developing services to meet the moving needs from A point to B point under the mission of “Having people happy by moving.” In the “JapanTaxi” application, various external links such as map applications and expense reimbursement systems are being carried out, but the realization of taxi dispatch at one stop by API cooperation with external services will be the first in the country (except for demonstration experiments). And, in addition to enabling a seamless taxi reservation within the “NAVITIME” application, NAVITIME Japan will expand the coverage area from a part of Tokyo so far to the whole country. We hope that we can support more comfortable travel by promoting the cooperation with various services related to travel as well as increasing the usage value through the development of this linkage function. The two companies will use functions convenient to more people by linking applications, and will continue working to achieve more comfortable and happy travel for users in the future. ※ Total number of downloads in Japan / Average number of active users per month (iOS / Google Play total value) survey period within the App Annie investigation taxi dispatch / ride share app: October 1-2017, September 30, 2018 * 2 The total number of monthly unique users for all services provided by Navitime Japan (as of the end of 2018) Reference: Taxi dispatch image from “NAVITIME” app
