Through a solution created by twoday, several patients can travel in the same taxi to get to their healthcare locations. This dramatically reduces costs for the Social Insurance Institution paying for the rides, while also reducing the environmental impact.
Finding good ride combinations isn’t easy. All passengers must arrive to their appointments on time, the journeys must not be extended more than is reasonable, the total distance must be sufficiently shortened and all passengers must be able to travel together and fit in the allocated vehicle. When several customers enter and exit the vehicle, it also requires some extra time for the trip. All factors must be taken into account in the combined ride proposals in order to maintain a good customer experience and achieve the goals of combining the rides.
