Global ride-hailing service inDrive and Silicon Valley startup MapUp are thrilled to announce the expansion of their strategic partnership into the U.S. market, continuing to transform the way commuters navigate toll roads and rideshare fare negotiations. Following the successful integration of the MapUp’s toll intelligence service TollGuru in Australia, this partnership continues to make toll costs transparent for passengers and drivers worldwide.
The recent launch in South Florida marks inDrive’s entry into the U.S., expanding the company’s mission to provide freedom of choice to its users with its transparent and straightforward bid-based pricing model. By leveraging MapUp’s expertise and TollGuru Toll API, inDrive provides South Florida drivers and riders with an upfront, transparent view of how toll charges factor into the total cost of every ride. The expanded partnership ensures inDrive will continue to leverage MapUp’s expertise and technology to deliver this toll transparency to riders and drivers as and when inDrive expands into additional U.S. markets.
Viktor Rudoy, Head of Products, Maps & Geo at inDrive, shared, “inDrive continues to improve fare negotiations by transparently including tolls, so that cost is clear to all users of our app. MapUp has helped us incorporate those accurate toll costs into our fare negotiations, resulting in increased efficiency and contributing to the transparent and fair experience inDrive consistently delivers to both riders and drivers.
Maneesh Mahlawat, CTO at MapUp, added, "MapUp is excited to continue this journey with inDrive. We share a common vision of toll cost transparency everywhere, wherever tolls exist. Our teams are closely collaborating to adapt the TollGuru Toll API to regional toll systems, ensuring seamless integration and support for inDrive's expansion efforts in new markets."
