Picap is a Colombian app available for Android and iPhone (iOS) that allows you to request Uber-style motorcycle racing. The startup, which recently arrived in Brazil, promises to reduce travel time and travel costs. At the moment, the app is present in only four capitals of Brazil: Belo Horizonte, Recife, Rio de Janeiro and So Paulo. To encourage the use of the service, the company is not charging commission from Brazilian bikers.
Users and drivers can easily register through the app, as well as the possibility to add discount coupons and use a chat to solve problems. See in the following tutorial how to use Picap's services.
