FarePilot ( is a geographical recommendations app, powered by machine learning. We assist drivers to find customers faster based on their location, linking to Google Maps and Waze to get them there in the most intelligent and efficient manner. Our app uses live information about where the busiest places are (along with some clever maths) and by going to the places shown the driver should be able to get more 'pings', more often, and spend less time waiting for their next customer.
