Let’s be honest; with the crazy heat and rain, hailing a cab or booking a car ride is our best option. However, some car-booking apps are a bit expensive. In times like these, we just wish Uber was still around since they are fairly cheaper than today’s car-hailing apps.
But a talented student has thought of the same thing. Meet Erwin Dee, a multimedia arts student who will soon launch a car-hailing app, one that is cheaper.
Dee created the app after seeing TikTok posts about how some citizens miss “Uber days.” He wanted to create a solution to make car-hailing fares cheaper again. With his programming background, Dee came up with “Tara.” Tara is a budget-friendly car-hailing app. But that’s not all; the app will give the drivers 100% of the fare.
Tara will be cheaper compared to other car-booking apps since it will comply with LTFRB’s standard fare matrix that does not include surcharges.
Once the Tara app launches and is ready for use, the app won’t only benefit Filipino commuters. The app will also benefit drivers who want to make a living by driving without hidden charges.
