Flywheel, formerly known as Cabulous, brings a consumer focused experience to the global taxi industry with its innovative dispatch-through-consumer hail system, making everyday rides around town a better experience for passengers, drivers and fleets. Passengers can easily hail a taxi from their smartphone via the Flywheel free mobile app (download it at flywheel.com), while fleets enjoy a state-of-the-art dispatch system that allows real-time tracking and communication between the passenger, driver and dispatch through the Flywheel dispatch platform. Available on iPhone and Android, Flywheel serves cities around the U.S. with an early focus on its hometown of San Francisco.
RockPort has been tracking the transportation sector for innovative and disruptive business models, and when we met the team at Flywheel and heard about their disruptively inexpensive fleet dispatch system combined with the ability to connect consumers and drivers directly using the latest mobile innovations, we knew we wanted to get involved.
