We have built Travel Ride bid Bot. Bidding travel ride is one of the crucial aspect in travel or cab industry.
What it does
Driver or Cab owner can bid for travel ride through chat with Travel Ride bid Bot. Driver or Cab owner just need to share basic details along with bid amount with bot and done.
