Each ride has a base fare and later on per mile charge is added. Mentioning the destination point, the app also displays the fare and the duration of travel before the start of the ride. The user can then choose to either pay for the cash with their credit card (in-app payment) or in cash to the driver. At the end of the ride, the customer can also review and rate the ride.

The service provider can choose whether or not to provide the taxi service to the customer. When the service provider accepts the request, the client gets notified and is also notified on the taxi's arrival at their location.
