Taxi Dispatch System


Recommended Posts

Will be changing the system. The idea I had was that taxi requests will be sent to the closest driver for 15 seconds then made available for everyone. Does anyone have any other input on how to make it fairer?

Maybe it's possible to also sent it with a priority to taxi drivers that haven't had a request for a long time? I know some people literally have the command copy and pasted to get the call quickest. 

 

Let's say Taxi A has not had a call for 10 minutes.

Taxi B just finished a call.

The new incoming call would first go to Taxi A, if he does not respond in xx seconds, it will move on to taxi B.

I do appreciate distance based. Gives us more reasons to sit at popular spots. If it came to time I'd suggest longest-since-fare as a secondary 15 seconds after closest vehicle. I've had people cancel taxi requests due to distance because of the time it can take to get to them, only to go making another request redundantly or have sprinted off if you actually try to get to them. People aren't that patient.
