The Goa government said that it will come up with a mobile application that will be a common platform for the entire taxi industry in the state. Chief Minister Pramod Sawant held a meeting with State Tourism Minister Rohan Khaunte and State Transport Minister Mauvin Godinho to discuss the issue.
Talking to reporters after the meeting, Khaunte said all taxi associations will be taken into confidence while designing the mobile application.
“We will discuss this app with everybody before finalising the project,” the minister said, adding that the taxi business in Goa cannot stay away from adopting technology.
The issue was raised during the last Legislative Assembly session, during which the government had clarified that a mobile app would be introduced to bring all taxi operators together on one platform, Khaunte said.
