Eastern Mediterranean University (EMU) Facultly of Business and Economics, Business Administration Department, International Trade and Business Undergraduate Program student Burak Bilgen and EMU Faculty of Engineering, Computer Engineering Department, Software Engineering Undergraduate Program student Hasan Taylan Bilgen launched the first taxi application “Daxici” in Famagusta, the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus.
Burak Bilgen and Hasan Taylan Bilgen, who stated that they witness the difficulty experienced by the passengers to reach ta taxi in daily life and the taxi driver to reach the passenger, decided to develop an application that could solve this problem together by establishing a company in Technopark.
“Customers Can Make Choices”
The young entrepreneurs stated that they aim to develop a 100% safe online taxi application system. Burak Bilgen said “The member taxis in the application can be categorised according to the regions they serve. On the basis of the region, the users will be able to see the taxi drivers licensed to enter the South Cyprus, Closed Maraş Military Area or Ercan Airport within the application and choose the right taxi service, accordingly.
“To Be Put into Practice in Different Cities”
Burak Bilgen’s statement continues as follows: “The application, which has recently been put into use in all application centers after having completed the piloting work in our city of Famagusta, currently only serves Famagusta residents. The application, which will be actived in other cities of our country as soon as possible, has already attracted the attention of angel investors. Over time, we are planning to offer this application in Turkey’s other smaller provinces. Our biggest dream is to realize bigger projects that will set a precedent for the youth of our country. We are improving our systems in the light of the academic information we have received from EMU and the information we have obtained from our esteemed instructors. A big thank you to everyone who contributed!"
