Ridesharing Startup Arcade City Launches New Mobile App

Ridesharing company Arcade City has launched its mobile app to Apple and Android app stores, offering travellers to the city the convenience of hassle-free commutes.

We’ve all seen the global growth of ride-sharing companies and apps, and business travellers have now come to depend on these taxi-alternatives, not just because of convenience, but because of their use of credit cards, effective billing, cost control and security. Now, Arcade City’s new app will help drivers drive the movement forward.

Arcade City’s new mobile app for Android and iOS will help the new peer-to-peer ridesharing networks grow in countries all over the world. Instead of controlling drivers from a corporate headquarters, Arcade City allows drivers to set their own rates, build their own recurring customer base, and offer additional services like deliveries or roadside assistance. Riders can review driver profiles in advance and choose the driver they prefer.

After Uber withdrew last year from Austin, Texas in the USA, Arcade City built the world’s first self-governing ridesharing network, now totalling over 43,000 members. Arcade City Austin has provided safe, reliable city-wide transportation in Austin for the past fifteen months. Riders and drivers in Austin communicate directly and coordinate rides with no corporate intermediary. The community sets its own standards for driver vetting and other policies.
