All the processes such as matching rider with drivers, fare estimation & calculation, ride payment, and reputation management are done by using smartphone with internet connectivity. Some countries such as Eritrea, Burundi, Chad, Somalia, and others have lower penetration of internet, which acts as a restraint of the ride-hailing service market. To hail a ride, the driver must have GPS-equipped smartphone that has active internet connection to identify exact pickup and drop locations of customers.
