Latest addition to mobile cab hailing app market -YouCab launched

31 January 2019 - 5057   - 6

Former Cricketers Mahela Jayawardena and Kumar Sangakkara announced their partnership with VirTrans Capital, the name behind the latest mobile cab hailing app to enter the market YouCab.

Speaking to the press, Samantha Bombuwalage, Chief Operating Officer of SYTRANS said “Customers are frustrated with the outdated process involved in fulfilling their transport needs. On the other side, low productivity and lack of hires is affecting the trucking industry as well. Idling of trucks has become a serious problem for the trucking companies in Sri Lanka and around the world. Therefore, step into the future and explore the untapped opportunities with SYTRANS.”

During the development of SYTRANS, CL Synergy also realized that, although there was an abundance of local and international taxi apps in Sri Lanka, a clear gap still existed in the market for sustainable passenger transport solutions.

The latest addition to the Island’s e-Taxi hailing mobile application market. Customers will be able to book a taxi, ranging from Three-wheelers to Luxury sedans and Vans using the YOUCAB mobile app or by calling the 24/7 hotline.

As an intermediary online platform, YOUCAB will connect passengers in search of affordable and reliable transportation, with service partners registered across multiple vehicle categories, providing travel solutions on a real time basis.

    Replying to Methuli's comment. I can't even find a website still. How did you manage to find it and already find faults.

    Given the maturity of Uber and PickMe, if you are going to ever compete, the product should be really upto the standard from day 1. Otherwise people will install and forget after first impression.
