So what do you need to create your own car apps like Lyft and Uber? This article will help you know how to do it:

Geolocation for Identification and Directions
The most basic requirement for starting a ride in connected car apps is determining the locations. The geolocation technology is used to find out:
where the traveler is,
the destination or the drop, and
directions for reaching the destination.
For finding out the location of the traveler, automotive apps will prompt you to turn on the GPS of your device so that you can be found by the driver. The destination of the travel and the location of the pickup can both be found out by utilizing Google Location APIs. Details of the same can be found here.

To show routes and directions inside the car apps are made possible by the Google Maps Android API.

Apart from using Google Maps for all these things you might want to buy a mapping technology for a long-term venture. This will help you aid in simplifying travel logistics and save your pay to Google Maps.

Sending Notifications and Push Messages
After you book a ride, automotive repair apps like Lyft send you many notifications. This information is given throughout the journey, citing any cancellations, delay or arrivals. These can be provided in the form of simple push notifications or an SMS. For SMS services, you have to strike a deal with a network service provider. For providing push notifications in the iOS app, Apple Push Notifications Service is recommended and for the Android car apps, you can go for Google Cloud Messaging (GCM).

Debit/Credit card of multiple banks,
Internal Credit System/e-Wallet.
Cash payment method being conventional, automotive apps for mobile like Lyft also provide the option of payment from Credit and Debit cards by redirecting towards the bank sites for the final deductions. In e-Wallets too, the money is directly deducted from the customer's wallet app. You have to tie up with a payment system/s to include this option in your app.

Backend development,
API Integrations, and
