PANAJI: Transport minister Mauvin Godinho said that the Goa Taxi app has evoked a poor response due to the high rates.
“GoaMiles is doing a fantastic job. Itt has filled the gap, and as a private operator, it is able to offer much lower rates. The Goa Taxi app has high rates and people are not wanting to join it.” said Godinho
He further said that transport issue still happens to be a problem in Goa and his department is working on a multimodal transport.
One who lands in Goa at Dabolim airport, whether he or she wants to travel by taxi, bus or rickshaw or motorcycle pilot (a two-wheeler taxi), they can choose mode of transport through this App. It will give last mile connectivity,” Godinho said here.
He said that the government will bring more electrical buses in the fleet of state government-operated Kadamba Transport Corporation to give good service to the people of Goa.
Today we order everything on phone. This is new era. Thus we need to give facilities of transport to book on phone,” he said urging app-based transport should not be opposed.
He said that Multimodal Transport App will help make advance booking. “We need to think how people can get cheaper and affordable transport mode,” he said.
He said that one of the indicators of growth is a good transportation system. “Electrical buses give facility of smooth and comfortable transportation and pollution-free transport,” he said.
