  10. About FellowCab:

    FellowCab is there to provide you with a cost effective and green alternative to one person/family travel to your destination from an airport by offering an easy way to find co-riders via a mobile app or through a traditional website.

    We have a web site for a user to input some info and we will try to find a match to share a taxi ride from an airport and send an email and/or an SMS to the user’s phone. Next step is to program apps for all the popular smartphone and tablet platforms. The apps in 3 clicks will accomplish the same as the current website prototype does in so many more clicks. The project is going to transport more people with less vehicles; this means it is environmentally friendly. Simple, elegant, effective and green to boot!

    30 Airports of the biggest cities in North America and in other countries all over the world will be targeted. Anyone and everyone arriving to an airport that we cover by our service expected to be a potential client. The efficiency of our service depends greatly on the number of people using the service.

    Please visit http://www.fellowcab.com ; can think of an important element missing?

    Well it would be nice to hear more about your service, and what will set you apart from the rest. What I found when I went to your website was just a registration and a little bit about a cab.  I was like well I take it this is for a cab service of some kind, but what sets it apart from other cab services.  This is something you will need to emphasize to your customers, you want them to use your service, so tell them why they should.

    How many times did you fly, on average, in the last few years (1-5, 5-10, or <10)? Are most of the trips with a return ticket or are they one way trips?

    I have to admit I have done no traveling or flying in the past two years.  However, when I have flown in the past it was always round trip.

    # How often do you take a cab to your final destination during your trips (10% of the time, 25% of the time, 50% or more)?

    I usually will take a cab when on a trip of some kind so it would be 50% or more. 

    Would you take a cab after your flight more often if it were 1.5 to 2 times cheaper?

    Well as I said above this is normally what I will do because cabs know how to navigate the airport which is no easy task in itself.  However, like anyone I want to save money especially if we are talking about a significant savings, so yes any cab service that offers this would definitely be appealing to me.

    # Would you consider a co-rider sufficient deterrent in exchange for a reduced cab fare?

    I have spent most of my life riding buses, so if I can ride around with countless individuals to get to my designation I would see no problem with sharing a ride in a cab with someone else.

    Does anything come to mind that would make the service more enticing?

    Maybe a better homepage, apparently from what you have said about your service here on Start Up Lift, this is a different type of cab service that will save people money.  This is something you need to use as a selling pitch to get people to use you before using any other cab service that is available.  Remember you have to let people know what sets you apart from all the rest.

    Would you like to have a taxi company selected for you and a cab pre-booked automatically, if a co-rider found for your trip?

    If there is a savings involved in the process then yes, I wouldn’t be opposed to such a thing being done for me.

    Where and how would you advertise this service?

    Of course one of the best ways to get the word out these days is through social networks.  You could create a whole page regarding your service on FaceBook.   Get a full page ad in the Yellow Pages and other publications. 

    Do you know a suitable place to refer in order to get business related feedback for our idea? Any suggestions are welcome!

    Once again Facebook is a great place to go, there are billions of people all over the world who are members of this website.  You could no doubt get good feedback going there, even Twitter would be a great place to get ideas from the public about your service.
