zTrip Accelerates Rollout of New Ride-Booking App

PASADENA, Calif., Nov. 20, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Given recent consumer concerns about privacy, surge pricing, and insurance coverage related to popular ride-booking apps, zTrip announced its plans to accelerate the rollout of its new app and service platform. zTrip offers customers the ability to book black car and taxi rides in select cities nationwide. zTrip's unique technology enables users to ride right now or book for anytime in the future.

zTrip's "ride now" service is comparable to Uber, without surge pricing or issues with insurance coverage or privacy. All zTrip vehicles are fully licensed and insured with professional drivers. Customers' personal information and trip data remain confidential and private through strict enforcement of policies and procedures.

zTrip's unique "book for later" service allows customers to reserve a reliable ride to important meetings, appointments or flights. Research shows this "book for later" feature is highly desirable to many people. Available on both iPhone and Android platforms, zTrip provides seamless booking and payment as well as 24/7 live customer support.

Mark Joseph, CEO of Transdev North America stated, "We are excited to offer an alternative to consumers and business clients in cities where we have operated for years. The option of booking for right now or later provides the ultimate in convenience and choice, and customers will not need to worry about surge pricing."

zTrip's full service model is now available in Kansas City and Denver. zTrip can also be used for airport reservations in more than 30 cities including Phoenix, Baltimore, Pittsburgh, Minneapolis, Tampa, and Los Angeles.
