Netlift's transportation solution now includes taxis



MONTRÉAL, Oct. 18, 2017 /CNW Telbec/ - The company behind Netlift, the Montréal-based carpooling app, today announced that its urban mobility solution will include transportation of passengers by taxi from now on, and that Netlift will henceforth be a planned transportation app. Starting November 20, residents of the central Montréal region wishing to plan their travels using the app will be able to carpool or, if no driver are available, get a taxi ride. Netlift members will thus be sure of reaching their destination via one mode of transportation or another.

According to a Polytechnique Montréal study, taxis are without passengers more than 70% of the time. Netlift plans to maximize use of taxis in the city by using their services during their downtime, in the process meeting demand from its users in planned transportation mode.

"We want to help energize the taxi industry by providing new opportunities to drivers and owners, while guaranteeing hassle-free travel for Netlift members," said Benoît Jugand, Netlift's Vice-President, Taxi Operations and Public Affairs. "We are a Montréal-based company that is mindful of the regulations currently in force. As an agent for positive change and modernization of urban mobility, Netlift seeks to offer Montrealers the finest planned transportation solution in the city," he added.

About Netlift
Founded in Montréal in 2012, the Netlift planned transportation application is the only one of its kind in the world, incorporating carpooling and taxi travel as part of a simple, guaranteed and efficient mobility solution. Accessible on the Web and on smartphones, Netlift matches passengers with drivers willing to share available seats in their vehicle at a cost of a few dollars per trip, to commute to work or simply to get around.
