How Much Does It Cost To Develop A Taxi App?

by Yogesh P. Moving Technology On a Go

Many mundane duties have been reduced by technological improvements, and the days of hailing cabs by waving your hands while standing on the side of the road are long gone. In 2017, the worldwide taxi booking service market was worth $36,450 million. With a CAGR of 16.5 percent from 2018 to 2025, the value will reach $126,251 million.

App for Dedicated Taxis

Entrepreneurs that already have a fleet of vehicles and drivers can launch a dedicated taxi app. The app symbolizes the brand, and digital media may help you gain more clients and grow your business. Third-party adverts or the traffic that your website will generate will be your main sources of cash.

Taxi Aggregator App

Uber-like applications operate on a model that does not need a large number of cars or drivers. To put it another way, you'll just list taxi drivers and their vehicles so that clients may contact them immediately.

There are two more classifications in the taxi app:

An app that is easy to use

A simple aggregator software provides all clients with a single application where they may list the services of various cab drivers along with their commercials.

An app that is available on demand

On-demand applications, such as Ola and Uber, are well-known examples. Users may use the app to get the services since it has a list of taxi drivers who are available in the area.

What Is The Cost Of Developing A Taxi Booking App?

Mobile app development services are never priced in advance. Several variables influence the cost of building a taxi booking app. Based on these factors, the cost of developing an on-demand taxi booking software might range from $15,000 to $55,000. Continue reading to learn about the elements that influence the cost of developing a taxi booking app.


Any app development process, including taxi app developer, is incomplete without features. The program gets more functional as we add more complex features to it. Furthermore, integrating APIs to include more features raises the overall development costs.


The technologies utilized to construct mobile applications significantly impact the entire cost of app development. It is advised to use an efficient and cost-effective tech stack from design through the development of the frontend and backend of the application.

The following is the technological stack you'll need to build a taxi booking app:

Google Maps is a mapping service provided by Google, Swift, Java, ExpressPay, Visa, MTN, and PayPal.

The App's Complexity

The more difficult your project's needs are, the more time and resources you'll need to devote.

-App Cost: $5,000 – $30,000 for Basic Complex Features

-App Cost: $30,000 – $50,000 Medium Complex Features

-App Cost: $50,000+ for large or advanced complex features

Time Needed To Develop An App

It's not possible to estimate how long it will take to construct a fully working application. It is determined by the quantity of resources used and the level of complication required to incorporate into the project.

-Design and development of an Android app for users: 40 working days

-Design & Development of iPhone Apps for Users: 40 Working Days

-Design and development of a web app for users: 38 working days

-Design & Development of a Driver App for Android: 35 Working Days

-Design & Development of an iPhone App for Drivers: 35 Working Days

The App Development Company's Geographical Location

Another element that might reduce or raise the overall app development cost is the location of the app development business. Companies in the United States, Australia, the United Kingdom, and other nations are often more expensive than service providers in India, Bangladesh, Indonesia, and Japan.

Developers in the United States charge $150-$250 per hour.

Developers in the east and west charge $40-$150 per hour.

Developers in India charge between $10 and $80 per hour.


Last but not least, rewriting criteria and making modifications to the software after it has been developed raises the project’s overall cost. When prototyping an application, it's a good idea to make a list of all the probable requirements/features. Calculating the expenses of web application development might be difficult at times.
