Company’s Pre-Booked, Flat Rate, Personal Ride Service is Now Available in San Antonio and Will Donate $2 to Local Meals on Wheels for Every First Ride Booked in March.
SAN FRANCISCO, March 15, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Wingz, the peer-to-peer private car service that offers pre-scheduled, flat-rate rides with a trusted personal driver, today announced it is bringing its acclaimed service to San Antonio, TX. The company is offering an introductory promotion of 50% off rides in San Antonio for first-time customers (with a maximum of $20 in savings per ride) from March 6th to March 31st. For every ride booked by first-time users during the promotion, Wingz will also donate $2 to the local Meals on Wheels chapter.
“We always want to give back to the local communities that we join,” said Chris Brandon, CEO, Wingz. “We partnered with Meals on Wheels in Dallas and Houston last year, and supporting the same organization in San Antonio was a natural fit.”
“We are thankful that Wingz chose to support Meals on Wheels San Antonio,” said Vinsen Faris, Chief Executive Officer, Meals on Wheels San Antonio. “Their donation will directly impact the lives of seniors in need within the San Antonio community.”
Wingz rides can be scheduled up to 60 days in advance, and the company lets you build a list of your favorite drivers so a familiar face is always there to pick you up. The benefits and lasting connections Wingz provides to riders and drivers enhance the safety and peace o mind that are lacking with traditional rideshare services. For that reason, Wingz has become the trusted airport and around town ride provider of choice for tens of thousands of frequent business and leisure travelers.
“Our goal at Wingz is to bring consumers a highly reliable and personalized driver experience,” emphasizes Brandon. “You know everything about your ride in advance—the price, the car, and more importantly the person behind the wheel. Having a driver you know, like, and trust makes all the difference in the world.”
“My driver Theresa in Seattle has been like a family member or friend driving and picking me up,” explains Sara Seabourne, Wingz rider since June 2015. “As a female and a mom, I feel safe with her and she's so good with my kids when I travel alone. The other Wingz drivers I've used over the years have all been very kind and reliable.”
Wingz—backed by Expedia, Altimeter Capital, and Salesforce.com CEO Marc Benioff—is currently available in 13 cities and 19 airports. Unlike other rideshare companies, Wingz is not an on-demand car service—riders can schedule their rides up to two months in advance. Wingz drivers are handpicked, vetted, and provided with a $1M liability insurance policy.
