Jiffy is a Mexico-based ride-hailing startup that is responding to COVID-19 with strategic business initiatives like its contact-less payment solutions and new social distancing rules. Specializing in corporate transportation, the company is looking to innovate in the wake of the ongoing global pandemic with new offerings that aim to make the experiences of passengers more convenient and safe.
“In the four years we have been operating, we have overcome regulatory issues, conflicts with carriers, the challenge of raising capital, but we have never faced an environment where the demand of our users almost disappears," said Onésimo Flores in a recent interview for Forbes México.
Quickly adapting to uncertain and changing times, the startup has implemented contact-less, digital payments that can be completed via the Jetty app and through QR code scanning. Additionally, corporate riders will be able to purchase individual and group tickets ahead of their drive, allowing Jiffy to calculate the safest maximum capacity of riders per vehicle and the distancing needed between each passenger.
