This app was made to help people get a better deal on cab fare when coming to Las Vegas, over 38 million people came to Las Vegas Last year. Over 28 million people got into a cab not knowing how much it was to get to their hotel, because of that 70% where taken advantage of by the cab driver that picked them up at the airport or hotel.
The average fare from the airport is $16 dollars, when a driver takes you the long way around that price doubles to $32 dollars. 70% of 28 million = 19,600,000 people got taking the long way.
With that said, with the average over charge of $16 dollars X 19,600,000 = $313,600,000 that the costumer has paid over, every year.
I’m the right person to come up with this idea, because I meet people ever day in my cab and have over the last 3 years that tell me to please not take them the long way, because their fare was so much when they got picked up at the airport, that they have lost trust in the cab drivers.
I also have a back ground in computer science engineering, system administration and networkings holding a (MCP) certification help me have the insight to come up with the idea of the app.
