The young populace found it pocket friendly. That is one of the main reasons why the concept leaped to a high success rate. As the concept of ride hailing expanded so did the database of the companies offering the service. as the database expanded it opened up newer venues for the companies to provide further value added list of services. Light on the pocket, on time, reliable and a bit of trendy, got the ride hailing companies to establish their operations offering services to various other countries like the Middle East and Far East.
