The taxi service market has experienced significant growth in recent years. Customers willingly use transparent and user-friendly mobile applications, and an increasing number of individuals are opting to work as drivers.
Established in 2013, the Estonian company Bolt quickly achieved remarkable success. Today, it provides services worldwide and operates in over 30 cities in Poland, making it one of the most popular and well-known ride-hailing applications in the country. The Bolt app stands out for its user-friendly interface and excellent technical support. How does Bolt work, and who can become a driver?
How Bolt works?
The operation of the Bolt application is straightforward and convenient for both passengers and drivers. What sets Bolt apart from other ride-hailing apps is its transparent fare calculation. The shortest route from the passenger’s pickup location to the destination address is taken into account. The result is estimated based on traffic data on the chosen route and the customer’s planned number of stops.
The fare for the ride is known in advance, even before it begins. Prices remain unchanged unless the passenger suddenly changes the destination or adds a stop. Each ride is fiscally documented by eKasa, and an e-receipt is issued for the service. Neither the customer nor the driver needs to perform any additional actions or use additional apps. The e-receipt is automatically issued and sent to the customer immediately.
Earnings in the Bolt App
Collaboration with Bolt follows transparent rules. The Bolt Driver app continuously displays the balance accumulated by the driver in a given settlement period. Bonuses and their fulfillment level are also visible, allowing drivers to check their earnings in real-time. Another convenience is the ability to check statistics, such as the ratio of rejected and unaccepted rides to accepted orders. Drivers working during peak hours and regularly driving can expect earnings of around 40 PLN per hour!
The app allows drivers to accept multiple orders in succession. This means that without completing one ride, you can already accept another. Thanks to this solution, you won’t miss any opportunities, and you can earn even more!
Efficient Driver-Passenger Communication
The Bolt app enables direct communication between the driver and the passenger. Working as a driver, you have the option to make secure VOIP calls and phone calls. Worried about sensitive data? Don’t worry, your number is not disclosed to the customer – it is masked by a landline number.
The app encourages good communication between the customer and the service provider through a rating system. Every passenger can rate the driver. The higher the rating, the greater the earning potential. If you accumulate enough positive reviews, you will always be prioritized for orders placed in your area.
