The traditional manner to travel in Jamaica generally consist of one of five methods (1) taking a hackney vehicle for a single person ride, (2) taking a route taxi (licensed or unlicensed) where more than one persons share a vehicle along a route, (3) taking the JUTC/Metro public bus systems available only in Kingston and Montego Bay metro areas, (4) taking a point to point express carriage, and (5) taking a rural stage carriage that moves persons along the route between rural towns and major cities. However, there is no platform organizing these forms of transports to streamline the process and make it, on the one hand, less costly, more equitable and efficient for operators and, on the other hand, making the entire process more attractive, predictable, safe and convenient for passengers and the general public.
New Transportation System
The introduction of Zypps in Jamaica changes the way transport operators, passengers and the general public engages. Zypps is an intelligent technology transportation platform for organizing, deploying and managing all forms of transport operators across Jamaica. This is done in a marketplace fashion so there is a central much, more streamed line and less chaotic process for passengers and the general public to engage with the transport operators. This is a less costly, more equitable and more efficient transport model for Jamaica.
Additionally, Zypps integrates a courier delivery network unto its platform to extend the Zypps marketplace beyond only catering to riders, but to include deliveries for small packages across Jamaica. This provides added vehicle utilizations and efficiencies, as it allows transport operators to use their vehicles during periods when riders are not available to double as courier providers for grocery and package deliveries.
Technology Based Transportation Platform
Zypps engages with licensed operators providing a technology platform to streamline their operations and bring sustainability to their operations.
Zypps allows operators to maximize vehicle efficiencies, lower operating costs and increase incomes through a rolling schedule of rightly sized vehicles on routes at any given time.
Zypps is not just for taxis, it is for all modes of transport in Jamaica.
Zypps pooled ride approach transforms a system of rigid routes and schedules to a fully dynamic and deterministic network. Zypps algorithm efficiently combines, on demand, multiple passengers or packages headed in the same direction.
Zypps platform and solution provides two approaches to allow public transport systems to dynamically route and increase utilization of each vehicle deployed at any given time based on actual demand that changes dynamically.
Streaming Operations for Route Taxis and Carriage Operators
Approach 1 – On fixed routes, Zypps would allow JUTC/Metro to size their vehicles to match demand for each vehicle round trip. No more having vehicles running a route at 50% or below capacity on a trip. Zypps solution allows for a vehicle to be deployed based on known capacity needs for any given trip...
Approach 2 – On geo fenced routes, particularly for:● Express Carriage operators providing round trip transportation from general locations to corporate offices.● Route Taxis and Rural Carriage operators where licenses are granted to transport operators to ply a certain geographic area, picking up passengers along the way.
Zypps allows Transport Operators to maximize vehicle efficiencies, lower operating costs and increasing incomes through a rolling schedule of rightly sized vehicles on the routes at any given time.
Zypps makes the process of engaging with transportation across Jamaica more safe, transparent and hazzle free for all stakeholders.
Zypps removes the "hustle" from the process.
The Zypps solution was designed with solving the driver utilization problem in the transport network company model.
Our approach is to maximize drive earnings per work period with guaranteed minimum average hourly rates, while simultaneously decreasing vehicle operating cost, by minimizing both vehicle miles travel without passengers and time spent waiting on passengers...
In Jamaica, we allow riders to pay for all rides electronically. Passengers pay in advancing using standard MasterCard or Visa cards. Zypps also provide a closed loop cashless payment system to enable the unbanked and underbanked to engage in the Zypps marketplace.
The infrastructure is provided free of cost and Zypps takes only a relatively small fraction of the gross bookings of the operator...
