GPU launches new rideshare service

30 Mar 2016

Corporate Traveller's preferred private car service Get Picked Up (GPU) has launched a new exclusive ridesharing service, GPU RIDE.

GPU RIDE combines the security and comfort of GPU's renowned transfers with the price and convenience of a rideshare service.

The new rideshare service is currently operating transfers in New South Wales from central Sydney to the domestic airport terminal for $35 for up to three passengers. 

Outlying areas including North Sydney and the inner south, east and west start from $40 and fares to the Sydney international terminal are available at a competitive $45. 

Corporate Traveller customers can book GPU RIDE via their Travel Manager with as little as four hours notice.

The company is also developing a mobile app for the service to be released in the second quarter of 2016 for on demand access to the service.

As GPU's premium rideshare option, GPU RIDE drivers are held to the same standard as non ride share drivers. Customers can also contribute driver appraisals and performance reviews. 

GPU RIDE vehicles must also meet minimum standards including being a four door sedan with suitable luggage space and have a maximum age of five years.

While the service is currently in pilot mode, GPU is planning to expand the GPU RIDE to additional states and territories when new rideshare legislation is passed throughout Australia.

For bookings or more information on GPU RIDE, contact your Travel Manager or call Corporate Traveller on 1300 732 280.
