My Role in the Project
Shaping Taxi Share from Concept to Reality

As a UX Designer, my role encompassed several critical aspects of the product development process, including gathering requirements, conducting research, carrying out stakeholder and user interviews, creating wireframes, prototyping, and developing high-fidelity designs.

Uncovering Insights
The Core of Taxi Share's Strategy

The discovery process began with an in-depth understanding of the user's pain points, primarily the high cost associated with airport rides. Market research was conducted to understand the competitive landscape, and stakeholder interviews were held to grasp the vision behind Taxi Share.

Building on User Insights
Taxi Share's Requirements Framework

Requirements gathering involved user interviews to understand their needs, preferences, and concerns about ridesharing. It also included discussions with the development team to understand the technical feasibility of the proposed solution. The gathered requirements became the foundation on which the platform's functionalities were designed.

User Journey Map
A key piece of user feed back was the need for a more seamless payment process. Users found that having to pay through a debit card or bank account each time was cumbersome. Based on this feedback, the decision was made to incorporate an in-app wallet to make transactions more convenient for users.

This led the team back to the wireframing stage. Wireframes were updated to include the in-app wallet feature, carefully considering the best way to integrate this feature into the existing user interface. New prototypes were then created based on these wireframes.
