Kommen Announces Taxi-Like Uber Fare Meter

Press Release updated: Oct 24, 2017 09:00 CDT

Today, Kommen llc, a company that creates complementary software products for Uber drivers and Uber passengers, announces a Meter for Uber that allows an Uber rider track how much is owed to Uber as the rider progresses on a trip. This new feature is similar to a taxi fare meter. According to Malik Akande (the Founder of Kommen) – “In addition to being able to schedule an Uber ride in remote/suburban areas not covered for ride scheduling by the Uber app, you can now also monitor your Uber fare as your ride progresses with the Kommen app.”

For Uber rides who uses the “Meter for Uber and Lyft” app, and also use the Uber rider app, this app improves the Uber trip experience by bringing two highly sought after ridesharing features in one place: booking an Uber Ride, and monitoring the rider’s Uber Fare.

Some of the rider additional features not currently available on Uber’s app include:

·         Uber Fare Monitoring: With this feature, the Uber rider can watch their fare as he/she rides in an Uber. (Multi-currency support also included).

·         Surge Price Protection: Per Kommen, the rider is protected from surge pricing when an Uber ride for later is scheduled on the Uber platform. One of Kommen’s users said:

“[I] Wanted to schedule an Uber for an early time and I’m on the edge of the service area. A driver accepted near the time, arrived early and I wasn’t hit with surge pricing that was going on. Worked as promised.”

·         Ride Backups:  With this feature, a rider can select a backup Uber product type, to call, if the primary ride preference is not available. For example, if an Uber Black is not available, an UberX is called, if that is selected as a ride backup.

·         Ride Retries: Rides are automatically retried when Uber doesn’t have vehicles

·         Extended Retries: You have the option to extend your scheduling window automatically.

Carrie Brunner grew up in a small town in northern New Brunswick. She studied chemistry in college, graduated, and married her husband one month later. They were then blessed with two baby boys within the first four years of marriage. Having babies gave their family a desire to return to the old paths – to nourish their family with traditional, homegrown foods; rid their home of toxic chemicals and petroleum products; and give their boys a chance to know a simple, sustainable way of life. They are currently building a homestead from scratch on two little acres in central Texas. There’s a lot to be done to become somewhat self-sufficient, but they are debt-free and get to spend their days living this simple, good life together with their five young children. Carrie writes mostly on provincial stories.
