Gett, Lyft, Cabify and Careem – On-demand transport companies join platform

February 28, 2019 Apps No Comments Email Email

Jayride Group Limited (“Jayride”or the “Company”) the e-commerce marketplace that provides seamless transport experiences for travellers, from 3,000+ transport companies, is pleased to announce it has launched  a booking system and aggregator for on-demand transport companies in what the Company believes is a world first, after successfully completing a successful pilot program.Over the past months, Jayride has been working directly with International on-demand transport companies  like Gett (Europe and Middle East), Lyft (available in the US), Cabify (Europe and South America) and Careem (Middle East, Europe and Africa) to create an additional offering that allows travellers to compare and book ride-hailing services, including to pay in advance at a fixed price through the platform, quoted in their currency, and with no app-install required.

Over 3,500 Passenger Trips have been Booked since launching the pilot program. In what the Company believes is a world first, these ride-hailing services are now available to be booked by travel brands, including Flight Centre, Rome2RIo, and Jayride’s other travel partners through at fixed prices, pre-paid in advance.

Adding these new services at a fixed price and with the ability to compare and book in advance, allows passengers to:

  •       Gain confidence in the price (avoid surge pricing, charges for traffic delays, etc.)
  •       Receive quotes in their currency (for ease of use and to avoid currency exchange)
  •       Fix a booking far in advance of travel (for ease of use and peace of mind)
  •       Have a familiar ride-hailing experience with the best local ride service without the need to download any app or  sign up before using the ride service
  •       Avoid paying for data roaming when travelling overseas

Ride-hailing companies can benefit from this new integration as they get a chance to gain travellers as new repeat customers.

“Every local destination has different on-demand transport companies , and these prices sit between bargain shared shuttle and premium private transfer services. Aggregating these services and adding them to Jayride’s marketplace means we can improve the customer experience for travellers, cater for new traveller segments, and offer a more comprehensive value proposition for the traveller,”  said Rod Bishop, Managing Director of Jayride.

“This successful pilot we had with Gett, Lyft, Cabify and Careem  validated the concept of ride-sharing aggregation as a unique and scalable offering. We can now offer the best local transport experience for our travellers, wherever they are, whatever their destination is, and in whatever way that suits them the best. We are now welcoming every ride-hailing Company to list their services on our platform, and look forward to offering more great on-demand transport company brands to our travellers in the near future”
