How Rides Appear in the Driver App

When rides are created in the Command Center or the Passenger App the Quickride algorithm assigns the ride to a driver logged into their Driver App. The ride automatically appears in the assigned driver’s Driver App Ride List within seconds.

Issues

  • Rides are appearing several minutes after they are created.

  • The driver has to manually refresh the Driver App by dragging down and releasing on the Ride List in order to see the new rides or ride changes.

Typical Causes

  • The mobile phone has a poor internet connection or has temporarily lost internet.

  • The mobile phone is in a data saver/ low data mode.
