China-Singapore Longitudinal and Weft Client July 9, July 9, Droplet Travel issued a price adjustment statement, announcing that since July 11, 2019, Beijing Droplet Travel will adjust the price according to the region, the effective areas include Dongcheng District, Xicheng District, Haidian District, etc.
Drop-by-drop response: to solve the imbalance between supply and demand for taxis
The price adjustment involves express cars, privileged cars and lime orange special cars. Price adjustments have been made to varying degrees according to different periods of time, including working days, rest days, morning and evening rush hours, etc. Take the drip express on weekdays as an example:

After price adjustment, the starting price and mileage fee of the early peak period (6:00-10:00) increased, starting price increased from 13 yuan to 14 yuan, mileage fee increased from 1.60 yuan/km to 1.80 yuan/km, and the time cost remained unchanged.
Ordinary time (10:00-17:00) mileage fee decreased from 1.60 yuan per kilometer to 1.45 yuan per kilometer, and time fee decreased from 0.5 yuan per kilometer to 0.4 yuan per kilometer, with the starting price unchanged.
In the late peak period (17:00-21:00), the starting price increased from 13 yuan to 14 yuan, and the mileage fee decreased from 1.60 yuan/km to 1.50 yuan/km, with the time cost unchanged.
In the evening (21:00-6:00), the starting price and mileage fee increased, while the time cost decreased. The starting price increased from 13 yuan to 14 yuan, and the mileage fee increased from 1.60 yuan per kilometer to 2.15 yuan per kilometer. The time cost decreased from 1.00 yuan to 0.80 yuan per kilometer.
From April 2017 to the present two years, the price of drip net car in Beijing has remained relatively stable, but the demand has increased rapidly, the call volume has increased by 44% all day, and the call volume in peak period has increased by 49%. The platform tries to balance the supply-demand relationship through various subsidies and incentives, time-sharing pricing, thermal guidance, queuing and carpooling priority, but the imbalance between supply and demand is still serious.
In terms of drop-by-drop, the overall success rate of passenger calls is low. Passengers will find it more and more difficult to call. At present, there is not enough capacity to meet the call demand of 1/5 of the early working day peak of drip express. In order to balance supply and demand, the corresponding price adjustments are made to encourage drivers to meet passenger travel needs, and at the same time, to encourage passengers to travel at wrong peak hours, so as to reduce the pressure of using cars during peak hours.
Netizen: Although it only increased by one dollar, it feels much more expensive.
Sino-Singapore Longitudinal and Weft Client understands that Beijing taxi fees are as follows: the starting price is 13 yuan within three kilometers, and then it is calculated according to 2.3 yuan per kilometer. When the speed is lower than 12 kilometers per hour, it will be charged 2 kilometers (excluding empty driving fee) every five minutes during the morning and evening rush hour, and 1 kilometer (excluding empty driving fee) for other periods.
User calculations show that if the length of traffic jam is 15 minutes during the early rush hours, the price from Chongwenmen to Fuchengmen by taxi is about 40.6 yuan, which is about 10 yuan lower than the adjusted price of the drip express.
For this drop-by-drop price adjustment, some netizens think that the original price is not dominant, and further price increase is more difficult to accept; and there are also views that as long as the corresponding services can be guaranteed, such as timely taxi, good service attitude, etc., appropriate price increase is reasonable. In addition, some netizens have also questioned whether price increases will be made in other areas besides Beijing in the near future.

Just love you naturally: 14 is more expensive than 13, but it feels much more expensive...
Scshuang frost: so you want to travel green and healthy in the future? Traffic depends entirely on walking.
Dalu Leqi: Supporting price increase, good service is also within the price.
TWist Nian Qian: Its better than a taxi that you cant get. It doesnt matter if you can get a taxi for one or two yuan.
Sheep bleat to the top of life: fruits have risen from three to twenty or thirty, is it not allowed to drop two or three?
Ms. Mo, who has worked for three years, told Sino-Singapore Longitudinal and Weft clients that she often chooses drip express when commuting, and the one-way consumption increased by about 5 yuan after the price adjustment. Because I could have freely chosen between taxi and public transport, sometimes I would have to be tired to take a taxi. After the price adjustment, my taxi frequency should be lower than before. Its not necessary not to.
User Mr. Zhang said to Sino-Singapore Jingwei that he would not take a taxi during commuting, but would choose to take a taxi or enjoy it only in case of emergency. If the situation is urgent, I will certainly take a taxi even if the price is increased. If the price is less than 10 yuan, it will have no effect on me.
