How do they do it? you ask. Simple: ride-sharing. You don’t take the most direct route to your destination, but stop along the way to pick up and drop off other riders, who may be in different parts of the city. This means your ride can last significantly longer than when travelling by metered taxi – but you meet friendly people along the way, and you pay a fraction of the price.
