Yellow Cab Co. of Sacramento and Flywheel are teaming up to offer Sacramento passengers $5 rides—and you don’t have to carpool to get the special rate! Just download the handy Flywheel app at http://flywheel.com/and reserve your ride.
The $5 Ride Special kicked off March 26 and extends through April 6. Flywheel also is offering the same deal in other West Coast cities: Seattle, L.A., San Jose and San Diego.
Unlike Uber, Lyft, and Sidecar, which offer discounts for riders who share a car, any Flywheel customer qualifies for the $5 rate, even if they are the only passenger, Flywheel CEO Rakesh Mathur said recently in a GeekWire interview.
“The UberPool and Lyft Line promotions are great in that they’re so cheap,” Mathur said, “but more often than not you end up tacking 20 minutes onto your travel time to inconveniently share a ride with someone else.”
In order to get the $5 ride, you must book your trip through Flywheel. See you soon!
