For years, the discord between the taxi and ridesharing industries has left British Columbia divided. Yet, in all of the strife between both parties, one key player has repeatedly been left out: the customer.
British Columbians deserve more choice and more freedom. At Kater, we've taken this to heart and have set out to find a solution that will work for everyone.
That is why, we've partnered with both the BC Taxi Association and the Vancouver Taxi Association. In working together, we've created a home-grown solution that's fair and effective. Our proposal means that you'll get the best of both worlds—the choice of rideshare or taxi services right at your fingertips. It's safe, convenient, and, most importantly, beneficial to every British Columbian!
Kater is a driver services app that offers a reliable, made-in-BC solution to ridesharing. Customers looking for a ride will be able to use the Kater app to identify the nearest taxi or rideshare vehicle and arrange for a pick up. With the choice of taxi, rideshare, accessible vehicle, electric vehicle, or luxury vehicle services, no customer will be left waiting more than 5 minutes. Through our partnership with both the BCTA (British Columbia Taxi Association) and VTA (Vancouver Taxi Association), Kater is the answer to using technology to bring people together.
Kater's adaptive machine learning techniques means that there will be enough vehicles on the road to get you where you need to go. With our 5-minute maximum wait time, the app will not only send out your request to the appropriate drivers, riders have the freedom to choose their preferred rideshare or taxi vehicle.
