Metropolitan Shuttle® Launches New Bus Charter App: MetroTrac®
Silver Spring, MARYLAND, August 8, 2017 – Metropolitan Shuttle® of Maryland recently announced the launch phase of their upcoming app, MetroTrac®. This smartphone app will provide a direct connection between patrons chartering a bus and the driver and vehicle. People will be able to see all details related to their upcoming, or ongoing trip on the bus.
According to the company website, “Metropolitan Shuttle® is a nationwide bus rental and reservation service for shuttle and bus charter services.” Their buses transport anywhere from 20 to 57 passengers, or more. They serve patrons in most major North American cities and Canada by managing a system of vendors focused on group travel. Their priority is, “Safe, cost-effective and reliable transportation.”
According to Glenn Orloff, CEO, of Metropolitan Shuttle®, “This new app is one-of-a-kind.” Through the MetroTrac® app, patrons can log into their account and see their orders and all correspondence with the company, driver information, and their bus’s progress in real-time. “This app benefits everyone,” Orloff continued. “Our drivers can log into the app, too, and see the orders, itineraries, client’s relevant information, and they can even sync with mapping apps like Waze and Google, serving as a GPS.”
When asked why Metropolitan Shuttle® decided to create and launch the MetroTrac® app, Orloff replied, “When we began, we set out to revolutionize our patrons’ experiences. We believe this app will do just that. We have been in the business of transporting passengers for 17 years and have had millions of patrons. Over time, we have learned that passengers need more control over trip details.” The app is intended to give patrons more power over the trip for which they paid; in fact, more control and power over their group charter experience than they would get anywhere else in the world.
“Passengers no longer have to call in order to find out where the bus is,” Orloff said. “They can just simply view the app, and know where it is and when it will arrive. All the information they need is right at their fingertips.”
