Besides not having to worry about parking, traveling in an Oyaa cab is much less troublesome than driving your own car. You basically don’t have to worry about anything other than enjoying your ride.

Here are the main benefits of taking an Oyaa cab:

  • No need to pay for gas and parking fees
  • No risk/liability to passengers
