'zTrip' recently launched in Austin, Texas, in order to provide SXSW attendees with a safe and reliable way to get to and from the festival. zTrip is an on-demand transportation service that allows consumers to hail a taxi or an upscale black car to take them to their destination. Now the service is available in Austin, just in time for SXSW.
With 150 vehicles now serving the Austin area, consumers have a new option when it comes to using mobile apps to find safe and reliable transportation. Unlike its competitors, zTrip employs licensed, professional drivers that have been screened for driving history, criminal background and commercial insurance. zTrip charges consistent rates, with no surcharge during peak periods. In addition, all of the cars are routinely cleaned, maintained and safety inspected so that consumers can be sure they will be travelling in a safe and reliable vehicle.
The launch of zTrip during SXSW demonstrates the growing level of competition when it comes to on-demand transportation.
