Title: ARRANGING ON-DEMAND SERVICES BASED ON ONE OR MORE PREDEFINED RULES
Abstract:
A transport request for a transport service for a user can be received from a user device. Based, at least in part, on information from the transport request, a computing system can determine that the transport request is subject to one or more rules stored in a rules database accessible by the computing system. In response to determining that the transport request is subject to one or more rules, the computing system can determine whether the transport request is valid based, at least in part, on the one or more rules and information from the transport request. In response to determining that the transport request is valid, the transport request can be processed to select a driver to provide the transport service for the user. In addition, the cost for the transport service can be paid by an entity other than the user.
