Driving is a waste of time and rather expensive when it comes to daily commute. This justifies the explosive growth of cab booking and ride sharing ventures. While Uber raised $3.5 billion in equity funding in June, Didi Chuxing is expected to raise another $2 billion in its next round of funding. And, it was just reported by Bloomberg that Uber China will be sold to Didi and Didi’s valuation after the deal will be $35 billion!
The demand is so great that aspiring entrepreneurs are launching Ride-Hailing ventures across the world. Uber like startups like MyTaxi, Lyft and Ola are just some of the growth stories. Developers on the other hand have been supporting this growth by making powerful Uber clone scripts available at very affordable cost.
Since there are so many ready made Uber clone apps available in the market, our team of analysts undertook extensive research to find the best ones. Here we are going to share the top taxi booking and ride sharing scripts in the market:
Arigya’s Taxi Pickr
The leading clone maker from India calls it “the best ever Uber clone script”. Available for both iOS and Android, the big app development firm has integrated powerful features related to car search, wallet, tracking, payments, fare estimation and security. Taxi Pickr has also been optimized from search engine point of view, which certainly is an added advantage.
In addition to the script, the company is also offering:
- Free updates for 12 months
- Best support for 3 months (free)
- Free installation
- Access to source code
What more can you ask for? Here is a demo video from Agriya for Taxi Pickr:

Taxi Hawk is an Uber clone script from the top mobile app development firm, Click Labs. The company is behind the app technology used by Jugnoo, an auto booking and sharing startup in India. Since it is a development firm, it left no stone unturned to make an impression with its website and succinctly introduces visitors to different app functionalities.
The leading software development firm however didn’t show off demos and instead asks visitors to request it by contacting them. Neither did they shed any light on the pricing.

This Uber clone app takes the cake from design and UX point of view. It has very neatly described how passenger, driver, and admin will experience the application by offering best visuals as well as live demo options. In addition to that, it also provides detailed app and web manuals to simplify the deployment of the Uber clone builder.
While frontend and admin panel works perfectly, the company for some reason opted to go for pricing-on-request. So, you have to get in touch with this Uber clone script maker to learn how much it will cost you.
Zoplay’s Uber for X
Zoplay makes a very strong impression with top features like credit card payments, multi-location access, integrated analytics, and customer loyalty programs. It looks like one of the most feature-rich Uber clone apps out there.
Zoplay is offering its taxi booking app, Cabily under 3 packages. You can get both Android and iOS apps for $3799 USD. Platform owner can control everything from the feature-rich admin section which gives you interesting insights and data for decision making. Admin and website demos are there to get complete idea of design and functionality.

App Jasmine’s Uber for Taxi
The company positions itself as Uber for X solutions. It has Uber for taxi, food delivery, laundry, and whatnot. However, we will only talk about its taxi booking app. And guess what? It’s free!
Of course there is a catch. The company is giving away only the web script of its taxi booking platform for free, and is charging separately for apps and add-ons. We checked a couple of them. None costs less than $1000. The company is also offering another package in which it is giving away an impressive bundle at $1499. Have a look on your own and judge by yourself.

One of the many products of Elluminati, this Uber clone script brings all the critical features and integrates them in an intuitive way. The admin dashboard is neat and planned with UX in mind. While the apps and features leave the visitor impressed, pricing makes them think twice.
Taxi Anytime charges separately for:
- Installation ($199)
- Custom payment gateway ($999)
- App redesign ($1999)
- Language change ($499)
If you can manage the product with source and installation document, then, Taxi Anytime is not a bad deal for building your taxi booking clone.
Cogzidel’s Uber for X Solutions
It seems like India is the hub of clone development. Cogzidel Technologies is another Indian company catering to young entrepreneurs interested in rewriting the success stories of Uber, MyTaxi, Lyft, Ola, or Didi. It has created Arcane, a product they call ‘Uber for on-demand services’.
We spent a few minutes in the dashboard area, and found Reviews, Member Management, and Category Management hard to grasp. Getting out of the dashboard was problematic as well. As for pricing, Arcane will cost you $1998 USD for both iOS and Android apps.

App Scrip’s Roadyo
Roadyo from AppScrip, is the clone script for real time on-demand services (or we should say Uber for X). Like most taxi booking scripts out there, it brings all the fundamental features required to book and track cab rides.
Roadyo however charges extra for surge pricing, in-app navigation, wallet, campaign management, and language upgrades. It also charges separately for iOS and Android app.
Appypie’ Taxi Booking App Builder
This Indian mobile development company didn’t build the best Uber clone script. It created an app builder using which you can create vast range of apps. They have targeted Uber app development because that’s what people are looking for.
We also gave a shot to the app builder software. To put it in few words, it is not the simplest of things in the world. Of course you can hire the Appypie team to do the work as well. What interested us more is the pricing. Appypie offers monthly, yearly and lifetime plans, and there is a free version as well. In short, something worth checking out.

We are done! Above are the top ready made Uber clone scripts available for you to choose for your startup venture.
Yes, you can quickly launch a ride-hailing business with one of these Uber clone solutions at a more affordable cost, comparing to develop from scratch. Now the question is, “Would your venture get the valuation of Didi ($35 billion)?”
The answer is NO. Well, at least not just by buying a top-class Uber clone script.
Here’s the reason
Didi, Uber and other ride-hailing platforms went beyond technology to become billion dollar brands. They didn’t just think in terms of app features. The established ride-hailing brands grew because they:
- Entered the market early and grew quickly.
- Understood target audience and market dynamics.
- Differentiated by providing unique value.
- Delivered excellent service and delighted customers.
While competing with the likes of Uber and Didi is tough, followers are making their share of profits by:
- Focusing on untapped and smaller markets
- Positioning their brand differently. For instance, rides for women.
- Giving better rewards and perks to drivers.
What we mean to say is that in order to make your venture profitable, there is much more required. Having a nice app and idea is just a start, you need to execute properly and deliver a brilliant service. Then, maybe you can raise a VC funding as well someday.
Now to get started, carefully study the above-listed Uber clone apps and pick the one that best serves your business goals and budget.
