Stress-free Car Service Gets Angelenos to Their Destinations with the Swipe of a Finger
LOS ANGELES, May 3, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- GroundLink, the next generation car service, is ready to land in Los Angeles, a city infamous for stressful driving conditions. Angelenos now have a better ground transportation option with the Los Angeles launch of this trackable, on-demand service, powered by an award-winning mobile app. With the GroundLink mobile app - available on the iPhone, Android and Blackberry platforms - customers can book future or on-demand rides, and track their driver's arrival.
"Everyone understands the pain of driving in LA. It's notoriously difficult to hail a taxi, mass transit options are limited and driving yourself through these famously clogged streets can be a nightmare." said GroundLink CEO, Charles Fraas. "It's always been a goal of GroundLink's to give LA residents a smart, affordable and reliable transportation alternative. We can't wait to show the city what we can do."
GroundLink is able to deliver this service due to its unique platform and the broadest network of transportation providers in the world. The GroundLink platform was enhanced by the recent acquisition of the leading software platform, Limo Anywhere. Using this technology, GroundLink tracks all vehicle availability in real-time, driving the highest on-time pickup rate in the industry. GroundLink operates a network of 45,000 transportation providers - the largest network of ground transportation vehicles worldwide. The GroundLink fleet is more than 4,000 cars in California alone. This unique combination gives consumers the convenient and worry-free ground transportation option they have always wanted.
"By combining the largest bank of ground transportation vehicles worldwide with proprietary technology, we consider ourselves the traffic controller of ground transportation. However, we go one step further and own the customer journey from start to finish" added Fraas.
GroundLink is currently available for rides scheduled in advance in any U.S. city and 5,000 cities around the world. The on-demand service, already available in New York and now Los Angeles, will continue to roll out nationally throughout the remainder of 2012.
