If you’re a taxi company or a for-hire ride service, you’ve no doubt noticed that the times are changing. No longer do passengers want to call a phone number to book a ride; they prefer to do it online, and whenever possible, directly through their smartphones. As the ride-hailing marketplace evolves to keep up with the times, you need a way to compete.
AsterRIDE offers taxis and for-hire companies including limousines, luxury sedans, SUV’s, buses, shuttles, mini-buses, and group event services a viable way to compete in the digital marketplace. With our one-tap mobile platform for hailing rides, we connect you directly to fares in your city in real time, helping bring more rides into your network.
The benefits of calling a cab or a chauffeur are the same as they’ve always been: the passenger gets to his destination safely, on time, with an insured and reliable driver behind the wheel. This is the major point of differentiation between your business and the new “ride sharing” services that are disrupting the marketplace. Their background checking process is unreliable at best and downright non-existent at worst. AsterRIDE is a practical way to promote your service as the safe, legal and bona-fide choice.
All of our drivers are background checked and commercially insured. We’re the first multi-city ride-hailing app to offer instaALERT a unique feature that allows passengers to tell a friend where they’re headed each time they book a ride. We have a reputation for safety, and by joining the asterRIDE network, your business can capitalize on that reputation.
Some of our other features include:
- Advance booking
- Real-time driver location
- Electronic payments
- Paperless receipts
- Group ride and corporate ride solutions
So where are we now? Where are we going? As of April 2015, asterRIDE is available in Phoenix, Orlando, Chicago, Seattle and Everett. We’re working to bring Los Angeles online by the end of spring, and we’ve got a short list of cities where we’re headed after that. Is yours on the list?
We’d love to connect to discuss how asterRIDE can work with your ride-hailing service to secure more fares and compete in a mobile world. Won’t you get in touch?
