Winter weather means often deplorable road conditions, which is where this on-demand service for car troubles comes in. Based in Montreal, Canada, the Boostmi app caters to stranded drivers who need to jump-start their vehicles by connecting them with other motorists and mechanics.
This modern mobile solution has an objective of connecting people with car troubles with "vetted boosters" in 15 minutes. This is a quick, friendly and cheap option compared to waiting for CAA and is more efficient than flagging someone down on the side of the road. The service costs $25 CAD compared to upwards of $100. The booster is responsible for bringing cables and relevant equipment with them. Like many other P2P platforms, there is also a rating system in place for boosters.
