Just launched in Los Angeles, Groundlink on-demand car service, 24-7. This is the next generation way of managing ground transportation.
Groundlink is changing the way people order cars, whether it be limos, a towncar, or even a cab. Now all you have to do is download the app, set up your account, and send for a driver! They pick up your location within a short period of time. And you can track how close they are on your smartphone!
Think of what Priceline does with hotels. Groundlink is doing this with car service. The prices are great, you can ‘hail’ the nearest car in your area from your smartphone, and you’ll know exactly what it is going to cost you.
Groundlink CEO Charles Fraas explains perfectly:
“What Groundlink has created is piece of technology that is effectively the ‘air traffic control’ for all car services in the United States; 25 % of all car services in the U.S. are tied into Groundlink. That’s important, because, if you understand where all the cars are in the United States, understand where they’re available; what you will be able to do is then provide consumers with the abililty to connect to a car that is really close-by. And in addition, if you know exactly where they are and you’re GPS tracking them, you can also allow consumers to track those cars.
So, with Groundlink, what is really unique about this, we really offer a couple of key benefits to consumers.
- We are everywhere in the world, 5000 cities and every city in the United States.
- We’re just now in 2 cities, by the end of this year, now doing this in 10 cities, where you will be able to get on-demand cars; what they means is all you have to do is open up your app, either on a Blackberry, Android, or an iPhone, you’ll be able to order a car immediately, you can see all the cars in your area, and you physically see it coming to you – no more of this “I don’t know where my car , we’re contacting the dispatcher
- It’s affordable, and prices will keep dropping. And you will see the prices drop throughout the year, as the volume increases. What’s really important is for first time they [consumers] really have a car service that they’d be able to interact with, on their own terms, on their own schedule.
And that’s what Groundlink is.”
With GroundLink, gone are the days of making reservations for a limo or town car. Service is at your fingertips. With a smartphone, simply move a red pin on an interactive map and your limo or town car is on its way.
GroundLink also will end the days of hidden fees and fluctuating cab rates. It offers flat rates based on distance rather time. Instead of watching the meter climb higher and higher in an LA or NYC gridlock traffic moment, you can relax if you used GroundLink to book your car. One flat fee, no matter the traffic. End of story.
Ever been stuck waiting for a cab, what felt like forever, when you were tired and just wanted to go home? Groundlink solves this annoying and (common occurrence) anywhere in the U.S. and in 5,000 cities and 110 countries around the globe. Depending on where you live, GroundLink can be there in 30 minutes or less.
And all this can be done, as a registered Groundlink user, with the “Ride Now” button on your GroundLink app. What’s really great with this app, is you can also track your car’s location, know the exact arrival time and communicate directly with drivers at any point in the process. And, just like Yelp, GroundLink app also allows you to rate drivers.
“GroundLink is much more than an app”, said the GroundLink CEO. “We are the first company to deliver access to a global fleet of more than a hundred thousand cars through an app. Until now, business travelers had no way to find a reliable and competitively priced private car service around the country and the globe. With the launch of our mobile apps on iPhone and Android, we’re embracing a multi-platform business model that is unique in our industry”, he said.
So let’s break it down, GroundLink vs taxi cab/limo, which is right for you?
A private car service and a taxi will both transport you from your point of pickup to your destination. The difference is how you get there. When you hail a cab, there are many uncertainties. When you order from Groundlink, it’s a guaranteed reliable ride.
Cost of Your Ride
GroundLink give you full transparency to your charges before you place your order with the exception of tolls, waiting time and stops. With a taxi, what would be a $15 cab fare on a normal day becomes a $100 fare due to traffic. Not with Groundlink!
Ease of Payment
When was the last time you hailed a cab and they would not take a credit card? Almost always! With Groundlink, they have your credit card and it’s paid for when you order it. All you have to do is worry about showing up for your car.
Taxicabs are convenient, especially if your flight was delayed, because one is usually always around to hail at airports. But how about a lovely late-model luxury car swoops you up at the exact time you arrive at the airport, with no extra communication or hassle on your part? Snap! GroundLink has you covered because they track your flight and arrive when you do. Now that’s the way to travel.
