Abstract: The app is developed with the intention of eliminating the problem of the unjustified high Price for the taxi service in the Metropolitan Area of Pachuca City (Hidalgo State, Mexico).

Full Description: History
The app is developed with the intention of eliminating a common problem by using the taxi service in the Metropolitan Area of Pachuca City (Hidalgo State, Mexico). This problem (among many others) is the unjustified high price for the service, although we know that there is a fee established by the Ministry of Mobility and Transportation of Hidalgo, the operators of the units rarely respect it, which generally increases the cost of the transfer or, in some cases, users don't want to pay the right cost for the journey that they have made.

A posible solution
This project use R packages like Shiny, OSRM, Leaflet and others, to get the approximate cost of a trip according to the starting point and destination point based on the rate approved by the Conventional Transportation System of Hidalgo with the intention of avoiding any problematic situation between the user and the service provider.

In the future
The objectives that it seeks to fulfill, either directly or indirectly, are issues such as the fair cost for the taxi service, improving the service by avoiding any type of confrontation due to disagreements with the payment, encouraging greater use of taxis since it generally decreases the cost in short journeys also, which is projected in a more advanced phase of the application, to be able to share through the interface the real-time location, information about the driver and personalized request of the service that minimizes the losses for the operator. ALL OF THESE USING R!.
