How this works is the passenger makes a request for a ride (by selecting pick-up and drop-off locations), and then they suggest a price they want to pay for the trip.
They can also add additional info, such as a request for a child’s car seat or another stop.
Drivers nearby can either accept the offered fare or make a counteroffer.
The passenger is then presented with offers from multiple drivers and they choose the one they want. In addition to the pitched fare, picking your driver can be based on their rating (you can see this ahead of time), the type of car they drive (it’s gonna be a Toyota Camry, it always is) and how quick they say they can arrive.
Like with other ride-share services [and taxi services], passengers can contact the driver before arrival and see the car’s approximate arrival time and real-time geolocation point on the map.

And to get drivers to sign up, inDriver is waiving commission requirements for the first six months. inDriver isn’t saying how much their cut is but said it “assures drivers” its “commission will be the lowest on the market”.
inDriver currently operates in Brisbane and Melbourne.
