Moving commute to a higher level

A long time ago, taxis would cruise the streets looking for customers, and all customers could do, if they needed a ride, was wait outside for a taxi to appear.

More recently, people would phone through to dispatch services to provide them with a car at a specific location and a specific time. Then, they hoped that the car would actually turn up, wouldn’t be too late, and that they would feel safe inside.

Now, thanks to mobile apps, we can book a ride in a couple of taps. We don’t have to plan in advance. We’re simply here and now. Waiting for more than five minutes is unacceptable to us, and we monitor which way our ride is going via GPS, with notifications to tell us that they are arriving shortly. So, we don’t have to stand in the rain or leave work in the middle of something or earlier than necessary. Thanks to driver ratings by other passengers, the chances of coming across a bad driver are being rapidly reduced.

But that’s not all. Not even a system as simple as this can think for us. It is still an either-or situation. Either we opt for a taxi or public transport, depending on how we feel. Only a few of us think that a suitably-chosen combination can be both cheaper as well as quicker and more comfortable. That is what we have decided to improve with Mileus.

Mileus system simply works better. With it the apps in our phones can work with us, get to know our preferences, learn. With this information they can always offer the best option for our needs. They can offer a tram journey when there are traffic jams in the centre. While riding on a subway the apps can notify us of the best station to get off and transfer to ride-hail car or taxi.

Simply put, intelligent technology can create the best journey home for us. Every day.

Everyone can profit from a system that functions this way. Passengers can be guaranteed that the best journey available at that time will always get them home. Classic taxis and ride-hailing operators will use their vehicles more efficiently, even out of rush hour, and allocate their vehicles better. Plus, they will be able to expand their services to a wider perimeter around the city, leading to higher customer satisfaction. Finally, municipalities will be able to alleviate the number of cars in the centres, ease the environmental burden, and free up car parks that are full to bursting.
