Showing suggestions to the users based on their past rides:

We book our rides according to our needs and suitability. It would be tiring and time-consuming if we have to choose those options again and again after every ride. So, the rides or drivers should be shown according to the recent rides taken.

Taking customers ratings and reviews:

There is only one way we can be sure about the rides we are going to take with specific drivers, their ratings. Ratings and reviews given to them make a rider feel safe and convenient. Also, the reviews and rating section enhances the quality of the app as well as the drivers.
