The Goa government introduced a taxi service app so that customers could reserve a cab for any destination inside the coastal state online. The "Goa Taxi App" was introduced by Chief Minister Pramod Sawant in the presence of the state's tourism minister, Rohan Khaunte, the chairman of the Goa Tourism Development Corporation (GTDC), Ganesh Gaonkar, and the director of tourism, Suneel Anchipaka.
Speaking on the occasion, Sawant said the tourist footfall in the state will increase once visitors are assured of their safety, and the introduction of the taxi app is a major step towards it. The app will also help bring down the traveling cost for tourists, who have been complaining about exorbitant taxi fares in the coastal state, he said. "Tourists were complaining that travelling to Goa from Mumbai by flight is cheaper than traveling to a hotel in the coastal state in a taxi," the chief minister said.
Khaunte said "Goa Taxi App" has been operational at the Manohar International Airport (MIA), Mopa since the last six months after its soft launch. More than 500 tourist taxi operators have already joined the app and are satisfied with its performance, he said. Operators affiliated with the app will get the benefits of various schemes, financial help for marriage and scholarships for their children.
