Develop an App Like Uber
Passenger App: Essential Features
Register/login page: the best way is to offer social media integration for registering, though an email option is also ok.
Booking interface: A screen where the user will input their travel data and hail a cab or book one for later.
Fare calculator allows to estimate the cost of the ride prior to placing an order.
Driver’s rating and reviews: feedback left by the customers’ on the driver, the trip, and the vehicle.
Messaging to contact the driver and settle the details e.g. exact pickup point.
Payment: Users should receive a fare quote and pay it in-app. They can securely store their credit cards for one-click checkout.
Push notifications: Keep the user updated on the booking progress and deliver the necessary information on their ride e.g. car model, color, number on the plate and ETA (estimated time of arrival).
Ride history: Displays details of the previous trips and receipts, plus can allow re-booking the same ride in one click (e.g. for the standard work-to-home commute).

Order alert: push notification plus information on the new booking – payment, route details etc. Should allow accepting and canceling orders.
Navigation suggests the best route to the passenger and onwards.
Estimation: States the order price with discounts (if available).
Reports offer a quick glance on trip stats, earnings, and payroll.
