When something like universal taxi app comes, a centralized App based taxi service mandatory for every radio taxi in the city, you’ll be making the most out of that.


Be Friendly

No matter how bad your day went, you don’t want to spoil someone else’s because of that. May be, you had a bad day, greet your fellow commuter and may be he/she will help you out.

You don’t need to do anything too special, just present yourself as an interesting person for the start, the rest will happen on its own.

Do some RAK (Randon Acts of Kindness)

You can do some random acts of kindness, how about paying for the other guy’s journey? That would be enough to make him smile next time that you meet him.

RAKs can be the greatest way to make instant lifetime friends. Just don’t offend someone, that is up to your conscience anyways.

Start the Conversation

You see, there is no way to have a good than talk to someone. By having a conversation on a rather very peculiar topic can actually make your day. Talk about the colour of their shirt or may be about their food preferences. Just don’t come out as rude or weird. The last thing you’d want to happen is being taken as a spy or serial killer.

So, how do you exactly start a conversation with a stranger you just met?

Asking a question is the best way to break the ice.

Smile when you see them again

If you have had a conversation with the stranger you met once, you’d recognize them next time. Just hint a smile and wave a hand for the next time you see them. May be the person will meet you often, may be you guys have the same timings.


Using App based taxi service, most of the times, provides you with a new driver. If you are a daily commuter and be friendly with every driver. One day, you will have so many friends in the city.
