This is a comprehensive project for the participation of ordinary people in urban discount-oriented CNG-TAXI. At first, the company sells shares (any share is 10 USD worth) for covering this project. These shares are adjusted in proportion to the expenses that the company will make for urban discount-oriented CNG-TAXI in this project. These calculations are evaluated by an impartial team of experts. These discount-oriented CNG-TAXI can be a gas-based urban taxi service projects. These stocks are categorized and rated based on agreement algorithm. And earnings per share and discounts are calculated and paid separately by software. Thus citizens will manage their stocks and shares proportionally. They can, depend on the needs and consumptions of themselves and their families, purchase the shares of each of the discount-oriented CNG-TAXI in their city purposefully and cleverly. Citizens who have more stocks will get more discounts. This Project will help citizens to cooperate in the small businesses and lead them to be a small shareholder with even 10 USD and manage the amount of their energy (water, gas and power) consumptions too.

All Peoples can use of it . Citizens who have more stocks will get more discounts. This Project will help citizens to cooperate in SHARED CNG-TAXI NETWORK and lead them to be a small shareholder with even 10 USD and manage the amount of their energy (water, gas and power) consumptions too. This project is a triangle between SHARED CNG-TAXI NETWORK, banks and governments. People are triangle's background. Thus, governments will try to improve their rules and regulations for encouraging people to buy targeted partnership shares. In this project, many of businesses relate together because people will buy shares based on their requirements and will get more discounts and then we can manage small moneys between ordinary people purposefully and citizens will cooperate in this project based on their incomes, requirements and discounts.

Rough Budget (500 characters)

This plan is feasible when SHARED CNG-TAXI NETWORKCompanies are owned by the banks (or municipalities or governments and etc.) or sign specific long-term contracts with them. In order to implement this project, first, we need to establish a company and in continue we refer to company as project performer. Then the company sells shares (any share is 10 USD worth) for covering this project. Thus this dynamic company is established by bank, government or even a big company too.

Describe how you would pilot your idea (1000 characters)

With this investment, the company can be convert over 1,000 normal Taxi to CNG-Taxi (any converting fee is equal with 1000 USD approximately) and uses it as CNG-Taxi network and Then The Company provides 10 station containing gas station in town. If we assume that each full gas stations (Fixed or Mobile) cost $ 100 thousand increase, the Company can establish (with approximately $ 1 million) of the 10 stations. The details of the methodology and how to sell the stock will be mentioned in the project. Every citizen can be a stock to buy $ 10 or more from a CNG-Taxi network. The citizen is the only holder of the vehicle and at the end of each month receives part of the revenue (interest on accounts) of the car only and only. Note the price per share is just $ 10 and any person or locals can buy one or more shares for themselves or their families. After this, the company, based on the number of cars, hires drivers to do the civil service.

Describe how you would measure the success of your pilot (1000 characters)

Drivers work in the city to move passengers and give services to them. They only receive a monthly salary and of course can be held by one or more of the shares of cars separately. Every driver works during a month. And in each car there is a card reader that electronically passengers pay their rent. Any CNG-TAXI has a CARD READER and it links to a virtual account in the company. Money paid by passengers will be deposited into a special account that is defined by the company for each CNG-Taxi. At any time, the company was informed of the status of the driver function in CNG-Taxi Network. The driver works during the day, according to its function, the service station and gas pumps and the cost of consumed gas will be automatically deducted from CNG-Taxi’s account in the company. Their consumption gas’s fee will deduct from CNG-TAXI’s account automatically in any midnight. A percentage of their incomes spend for life insurance and car repairs and medical care and etc. automatically.

Sustainability Plan (500 characters)

during the day, the driver does not have to worry about the cost of consumed gas. If the CNG-Taxi driver to move passengers less then will consume less gas and thus earning the driver and the company will be proportionally less and if the CNG-Taxi driver to move passengers more then will consume more gas and thus earning the driver and the company will be proportionally more. This plan help to grow up CNG Used Network and it will improve economical cycle and welfare in your city continuously.

Hey Jafar Oshriyeh , I'm Jasmine one of the online facilitator's for this year's challenge. Thanks so much for sharing your idea! How do the shares help people manage their energy consumption? And will the discounts for the rates be based solely on the amount of shares owned or will other factors like income play a factor as well?

For example, a citizen purchases 100 shares of a taxi service which operates in his neighborhood. These stocks are categorized and rated based on an agreement algorithm. And earnings per share and discounts will calculate and pay by software separately. Thus citizens will manage their stocks and shares proportionally. This Project will help citizens to cooperate in this project and lead them to be a small shareholder with even 10 USD or multiple of it.
Also if we have encouraging politics in our cities then citizens will try to buy public utility project’s shares and instead they can get discount for using public bus or metro or low taxes fees for their permissions too. Although the company sells his shares in the stock exchanging building separately but changing shares between neighborhoods and citizens are easy based on the citizens’ situations and requirements and likes too.
All citizens are impressive based on the population of their families, the monthly consumption and the number of shares that have invested in the company. For this reason, all citizens will manage their consumption and purchases as well as the number of shares purchased continuously. Because on the basis of coefficients defined in software, not only consume more purchases causes more discounts but also having more stock would be more discount.
