The OiiiBid interface for passengers is built into the Oiii® passenger app. It provides an intuitive interface for passengers to place their offer and execute the auction. To guide the passenger in setting the initial offer, the Oiii app provides a recommendation based on an algorithm that takes several factors into consideration.
These factors include but are not limited to time of day, travel distance, ride class, vehicle type, special conditions, applicable rate set and vehicle availability (in the vicinity of the pick-up location). Passengers have the ability to decrease their offer within limits to avoid placing unrealistic offers into the Oiii market place. Equally, they can increase their offer to attract more drivers.
An example flow for a transport service request in the Oiii passenger app is displayed below. It shows a passenger setting their transport requirements and placing an offer into the Oiii market place.
After a bid from a driver, the passenger places a counter offer and the second offer is accepted by the driver. At the conclusion of the transport service, the passenger is invited to rate the journey.
The Oiii website provides relevant OiiiBid information for passengers.
