Rydo was created to do it right. There are lots of apps out there, some have already failed, some are struggling. The difference with Rydo is that we intimately understand the taxi industry. GM Cabs, our major partner has been in the industry for over 20 years and knows how to take care of drivers.
Rydo is an Australian based technology company bringing the best of technology to the professional taxi and hire car industry. Rydo set out to make a difference and to put the power of technology in passengers hands, but deliver the job to the familiar terminal that the driver already has. No need for another app on the drivers already busy phone!
We are not just another transport app. We bring the best of the taxi industry; the knowledge, the professionalism, the safety, the network, and couple it with cutting edge technology that saves our clients time and money and gives our drivers jobs and security.
