Interview Highlights

There’s simple mathematics behind it. When you’re not taking a 25-30% commission from the driver, you can basically reduce fares by let’s say another 10-15% against Uber or the rest of the competitors. So once you reduce those fares, you’re literally the cheapest option in the market without harming or without taking away any earnings from the driver. So the driver still makes more because you’ve just split up that commision figure into 2 halves. It’s cheaper but the driver still doesn’t miss out. They’re still making more than any other platform.
