Hometown ExecuCar launches new zTrip app in Phoenix
PHOENIX, Nov. 15, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Phoenix/Scottsdale residents and guests will now have the option of booking an upscale ride for now or later. It’s like hailing a taxicab, but a sleek back sedan shows up instead. ExecuCar starts beta launch of its official mobile app zTrip in Phoenix/Scottsdale today.
“This is a game changer for us,” said Brian Wier, CEO of Veolia Transportation’s On Demand Division. “Several technology companies have initialized a revolution of the transportation model, but zTrip solidifies on demand sedan service in a way no one else can. We operate private sedan, SUV services, Taxicab businesses and SuperShuttle in over 50 locations in the US and we intend to have the option to book any of our services with ease on one app zTrip. So with zTrip you get the reliability of a vastly experienced transportation company standing behind your experience from start to finish.”
zTrip will be competitively priced and promises to be your go-to designated driver, so its perfect for going to dinner or late night clubbing, because all you have to do is hit “Pick me up now.” So how does it work: Simply download the app on your iPhone® or Android® and register, you will now be ready to book your transportation need with ease!
zTrip is starting its initial rollout in the Phoenix/Scottsdale market with ExecuCar, sedan service which has operated here for over 20 years with an existing fleet of 150 cars. The “Pick me up now” service is competitively priced in the Phoenix/Scottsdale market starting with a minimum fare of 15 dollars including the first three miles and three dollars a mile thereafter. “Pick me up now” zones in Scottsdale and portions of Phoenix will continue to expand throughout the beta launch and customers can continue to use the “Pick me up later” service from anywhere in the greater metro-Phoenix area or other US locations served by ExecuCar.
“Currently the “Pick me up now” function is only available in Phoenix/Scottsdale area, but we hope to roll it out nationwide as soon as possible,” Wier continued. “zTrip is going to be the app of choice for on demand transportation because we are not a technology company, we are a transportation company. We invite all of our zTrip customers to go to zTrip.com and tell us what you think and take advantage of our many promotional offers.”
