Job profile! Taxi-sharing entrepreneur: start-up by chance

Many good business ideas come about by chance because someone recognizes a need and takes action. This is how taxi sharing came about.

Best of HR – Berufebilder.de®

A normal business trip

Actually it was a normal business trip. Get out of the plane, into the taxi and off to the hotel. And as usual I was annoyed again this time that I had to pay for the taxis almost more than for the flight ticket.

I was not alone with my anger. Almost at the same time, two other businessmen came out of their taxis I had already seen at the airport.

Be active instead of annoying

In a telephone conversation with an acquaintance, I made my anger at first. And when he then talked about a similar experience, it made my point.

Actually, you should be able to share the taxi. At large airports in particular, there is always someone who wants to go in the same direction. "If it were that easy, someone would have invented it long ago," said my friend.

"You can only win something if you risk something."

Still, I couldn't get rid of the idea. And 10 months later the internet portal transfAIRo.com went online. You can quickly and easily find passengers with the same via the homepage or shortly via a smartphone app Objective and share the costs with you.

A lot of enthusiasm, lots of work and the right partner

The last year has brought about one thing - lots of work. I have to admit, one has an idea, but over the rat tail that dranhangen, one makes itself only once no thoughts.

Conception, design, programming, marketing and, and, and ... The necessary know-how and manpower for all these tasks was contributed by a friend with his own advertising agency.

Advertising on a small budget

Good ideas prevail. This applies to transfAIRo as well as to the planned marketing activities. Because here it has to be Company initially get along without a large advertising budget.

Creativity is therefore not only required in advertising, but also in dealing with costs. Smartin advertising gmbh is responsible for this. With guerrilla campaigns, social media marketing and promotions, the Cologne agency moved the advertising drum for transfAIRo.

The first customers will be noticed

The environment also benefits from the idea. In addition to the travel costs, the CO2 emissions per kilometer driven are halved. Two good reasons why the first major companies are becoming aware of transfAIRo.

I am happy, finally, that is the best confirmation to have done the right thing.

    "... invented taxi sharing."

    Interesting thesis - where a few years ago, the first startups brought taxi-sharing apps on the market.

    Transfairo is a super approach, but nothing but a portal á la blablacar. For example, our app SHARE-a-Taxi including taxi call, intelligent route matching and causative digital payment since the beginning of 2015 offers a holistic taxi sharing. We are looking forward to hearing from you - I am looking forward to your feedback.

    • Simone Janson says:

      Hello Mr. Wesch,
      Thanks for the interjection. You are also welcome to write a founder report alla Transfairo, also as a contribution to the discussion, which we would also be happy to publish here. You are also welcome to post the reader contribution yourself: https: //berufebilder.de/ reader-contribution /

    Very exciting report. A few days ago we argued that the success of taxi apps is only about the taxi driver. So the question is, what does the taxi-sharing company do to mobilize taxi drivers?

    • Simone Janson says:

      Hallo,
      exciting suggestion - I'll pass that on to the author in a moment.

    • T.Zumkeller says:

      Hello Mr. Wenzlaff,
      TransfAIRo is just the platform to bring together like-minded people for the airport transfer (and even worldwide), this could be a shared taxi ride, a private car ride, a group ticket ride or a rental car. ... ..
      At the airport transfer the start or the destination is already fixed, so it increases the chance to find like-minded people.
      If you bring someone to the airport, you can take someone on the way back and forth with you.
      On a round trip, 4 will incur cost-intensive transfers which can sometimes exceed the cost of the flight, ie high savings potential.
      The taxi apps are just for calling a taxi. Of course that could be practical for our users, maybe there is a cooperation.
      So: actually we do not need to mobilize the taxi drivers, but the passengers to join together to ride together. We believe that we get some S train drivers back in the taxis.
      Of course you need a decent number of participants and that will be the main task to make TransfAIRo known.
      Greetings Tom Zumkeller

  6. Andreas Herrmann says:

    Respect, a courageous and definitely meaningful business idea! Too bad that I in HH of it still have not received. I would like to use myself.

    • Simone Janson says:

      If you did not notice that in HH, it could be that there is no such thing. Ergo a market gap. Therefore: make Mr. Zumkeller aware of the idea. Do it yourself. Or start your own local business in HH.

    • T.Zumkeller says:

      Hello Mr Herrman,
      a shame ... but that is exactly the problem of a startup: getting known.
      We are just 4 months online and still need some nice reports or cooperation partners.
      Greetings from Cologne
      T.Zumkeller
      Happy Transfer Sharing
