Cab Match App Helps Travelers Connect and Share a Cab from the Airport

(December 17, 2010)

Washington, DC, December 17, 2010 --( Cab Match LLC today announced the launch of a new iPhone application aimed at taking the sting out of high priced transportation to and from airports worldwide. The application helps travelers connect to share a cab to the same destinations or those in close proximity. The company expects over a million downloads by travelers looking to economize on travel expenses this holiday season.

According to Laura Mandala, tourism industry consultant and former executive with the U.S. Travel Association, “Travelers increasingly are looking for ways to retain travel as part of their normal lifestyle but do it in a way that stays within their often reduced budgets. Cab Match is an App that can make incremental trips more affordable. From Washington DC to New York City for example, you can fly on the shuttle for $129.00 and the cab ride from the airport to New York City can cost you close to half that amount. Sometimes these ancillary costs make travel prohibitive.”

The Cab Match App is designed for travelers who want to save money and time at the airport. Cab Match helps you quickly locate other riders with its simple user interface and clever features. Unlike other cab share and fare share apps, Cab Match can be used at all airports nationwide and internationally.

Unique features of the Cab Match App include :
- Locate a taxi share the moment you land
- Instant account creation
- Text chat with potential riders
- Major hotel chains are listed
- Convenient automatic login with the iPhone app
- Draft Mode for in flight use without Internet access
- Connect with riders using the Android and other smartphones
- Avoid shuttles that make multiple stops
- Riders can decline a ride share at any moment

Dr. Minh Tran, founder and CEO of Cab Match LLC has been tackling ways to reduce travel costs for some time. “As a young professional who wanted to incorporate more travel into my life, and knowing others who felt the same way, I was driven to develop an application that helped facilitate travel.” And according to Mandala Research, this is a very good thing. “Travel and tourism is a $700 billion industry, responsible for 1 in every 8 jobs in America. Anything that encourages more travel will be welcomed by destinations, retailers, attractions, and the staff they employ.”
