Why do people need an app to hire bike taxi?

Ever wonder how the concept of taxi’s started? It probably dates back to the time when carts were used and people would just offer some money to get from one place to another so they did not have to walk. But even in those times, the idea of a bike taxi had not fully been established.

This is probably the genius stemmed from the Asian minds. Indonesia is a country where the hustle and bustle of taxis are pretty loud. The streets are small and the population is high as compared to the area of the place. Instead of hiring a cab to get from one place to the other, people in Indonesia, prefer to travel on bike taxi.

These bike taxi are popularly known as Ojeks. This is where the revolutionary company Gojek comes into the picture. Gojek transformed the bike taxi industry in a swift way. They took the concept of the On Demand business and applied it to hailing bike taxi. It was practically a miracle for the local people because it allowed them to hire a bike taxi, without having to physically look for them.
