Flywheel Streamlines City Living by More Efficiently Getting Urbanites Taxis to Get Around Town
SAN FRANCISCO, CA–(Marketwire – Dec 13, 2012) – Cabulous, one of the earliest companies in the hired-ride app business, today announced it’s leading the way into the second-generation of the industry, renaming the company and product Flywheel. The company has revamped its iPhone and Android apps, upgraded its driver app and enhanced its cloud-based dispatch platform.
Flywheel is focused on affordability, accountability and transparency. Fares are based on licensed metered rates with Flywheel charging riders a very low 60-cent fee for mobile payment. Flywheel partners with taxi fleets and is integrated with their existing dispatch systems and taxis. The company has over 2000 taxis in over a dozen US cities, including 1/3 of the taxis in San Francisco.
Drivers receive 100% of the metered fare, because Flywheel believes we shouldn’t take hard-earned income out of the drivers’ pockets. Other aspects of our Ride Experience platform ensure that drivers are as reliable as possible, consumers get the service and reliability they crave, and the entire experience works smoothly within the urban context anytime, anyplace.
