On demand transport in Perth
With more than 2 million citizens, Perth is fourth most densely populated city in entire Australia. With so many people you can only imagine how many cars there are every day on the roads. With so many cars you can just guess how inconvenient the driving must be. Even when you reach your destination sometimes it’s impossible to find a free parking space, so you roam the city in search of a free space. And then you must feed the meter and walk to your destination, because there weren't any spaces directly next to it. So you waste money, time and nerves. What if you could make this easier? With Shofer ride sharing service you can.
The idea is simple - a group of skilled drivers are always on the street of Perth waiting for you. When you need a ride, you don’t have to look for a taxi rank. There’s no need to worry about parking and traffic. The only thing that you need is already in your pocket - your smartphone. Shofer app is available both for iOS and Android devices, so two most popular platforms in the world. You have to create an account before you start using the service, but it’s easy and you can also use your Facebook profile to log in. Use the app to choose the place where you want to be picked up and your destination. Before accepting the ride, you will get a total price of the ride and estimated travel time. If it’s OK with you, just confirm and wait for the driver. There is no such thing as surge pricing, so you don’t have to worry when you need to use the service during rush hours. Rate is always the same. Recent years have brought us few similar car sharing services, but Shofer has got few tricks up its sleeve. For example, tipping.
With Shofer app, you can actually tip your driver if you want to. Tipping is natural in many cultures, usually taxi users leave the change for the driver, which was not possible in services where you pay on your phone. But now it’s possible, when you pay for your fare, you can also add optional tip if you are satisfied with your driver and want to show your gratitude. Another novelty that Shofer competitors lack is Panic Button. Both your and your driver’s safety is quintessential for Shofer. This is why both you and your driver have the option to use Panic Button inside Shofer app. If somehow you feel threatened or scared and you are worried about your safety you can press big red button with exclamation mark and you will be connected with professionally staffed control room that is opened 24/7. Shofer founders realise that jumping into a car with a stranger might be scary, so you can actually choose if you want male of female driver. Another interesting feature is pre-booking. If you know in advance that you are going to need a ride then you can pre-book it, so you won’t have to worry about it later. That is especially handy for travellers coming and going from the airport. You can provide your flight id and when you touchdown, a driver will be waiting for you. After all, the company’s slogan is „On time, every time & safely.”
