Update Trip Status

Once a trip is created, the default tripStatus is set to Planned and this will be displayed accordingly in the Plan Trip API response. tripStatus is then monitored until the trip is completed.

The Update Trip Status API is used to change the status of a trip to one of five values:

  • Rejected - The driver rejected this trip and the trip is not in an active state.
  • Accepted - The driver accepted this trip and the trip is now active. This sets the tripStatus to InProgress.
  • Completed - All open stops on the trip are completed. This sets the tripStatus to Completed. Once a trip is completed, it cannot be reopened or cancelled.
  • Cancelled - This sets the tripStatus to Cancelled. Once a trip is cancelled, it cannot be reopened or completed.
  • Received - This status can be used to confirm that a trip was delivered to a device and a driver received it. It does not put the trip InProgress, which requires the additional step of Accepted.
