Goa launches taxi app for facilitating commuting in the state

The Department of Tourism, Goa, launched the "Goa Taxi App" on Friday (September 15) in Panjim. Present on the occasion were the Chief Minister of Goa, Dr. Pramod Sawant, Minister of Tourism, ITE&C, Printing & Stationery, Rohan A Khaunte, Chairman GTDC, Ganesh Gaonkar, Secretary of Tourism, Sanjay Goel and Director of Tourism, Suneel Anchipaka.


This app has been introduced to ensure hassle-free commuting and an enhanced traveling experience for residents and visitors across the state. Additionally, it will provide the Goan taxi drivers an opportunity to increase their revenue within the state and offer a price advantage. For the residents and tourists, this app will also bring the convenience of hailing a cab from the comfort of their home or hotel.

The Goa Taxi App makes it simple to book a taxi at any time of day or night. For a visitor in particular, a driver-driven cab at an inexpensive rate will be preferable to a self-driven car or bike. When a tourist is unfamiliar with a region's topography and relies on Google Maps, it results in a stressful experience. With the use of a unified taxi app system, passengers can rate the driver, report any instances of inappropriate behavior, and request assistance through the call center. In addition, the app has an SOS in case of any catastrophe, malfunction, emergency, or security feature pertaining to the protection of female travelers.

Speaking on the occasion of the app launch, Sawant, said, "Over the last four years, it has been our goal to develop innovative technology in various sectors in order to increase the ease of living and happiness index of both tourists and residents in Goa." We have had a positive response for the last six months, and today we're launching the Goa Taxi App. Our goal is to attract quality visitors rather than numbers. It would also assist in decreasing accidents and keeping women safe while traveling. I encourage everyone to use the Goa Taxi App, and I commend those who have already done it reflects their trust in the Government.”
