New York, NY, United States, 2012/06/13 - Vehive, a marketplace for ground transportation, is launching mobile applications for Apple and Android mobile devices - Vehive.com.
Vehive is an innovative e-commerce internet start-up that focuses on the ground transportation industry. Vehive provides an open and transparent marketplace for consumers looking to secure ground transportation across the nation accessible via the Web or a smartphone. Travelers can compare travel options from local and nationwide transportation providers by price, reputation, availability, and level of service. The marketplace empowers corporate and individual travelers to get a car at a competitive price.
Max Belenitsky, CEO of Vehive, explains,“The ground transportation industry is extremely fragmented and travelers don’t have a good source of reliable information or real-time access to pricing and availability. Vehive is the answer to the travelers’ problem.”
Vehive differentiates itself from competitors by allowing travelers to pick from local and nationwide providers, different vehicle types, and by enabling travelers to arrange immediate pickups or future engagements.
“In today’s economy, every single person traveling for pleasure or business is looking for a fiscally sound and secure way to reserve ground transportation. Vehive’s users are going to client meetings, to or from the airport or hotels for work or pleasure, or simply going for drinks to a local bar with friends.” Vehive provides travelers the ability to locate reserve and manage car reservations online or on their smart phones go whenever they want.
Vehive is submitting a response to the request for proposal (RFP) to the New York Taxi & Limousine Commission (TLC) later this month to develop a smart phone solution for Yellow Cabs. The proposed application will include features like street hails, cash-less payments, ride sharing, customer feedback, and lost & found. If Vehive is selected travelers will have the luxury of being able to hail a yellow taxi, or reserve a livery cab or a corporate car using the same application or website, anywhere in New York City, any season, any weather, and at any time.
In recent months, Vehive has signed agreements with top-tier nationwide corporate limousine companies and hundreds of local providers to join the network and is bringing them online over the next month. Travelers will be able to find the transportation they are looking for at competitive rates with Vehive’s diverse network of fleets.
Interested travelers can visit vehive.com or find the Vehive mobile apps for download at the iPhone App Store and Google Play Store.
