Ridecell Inc., the leading platform provider for shared mobility operators, announced that it has been selected by Penske Dash as the technology partner for Penske Dash carsharing.
The Ridecell platform used by Penske Dash provides a complete solution for their carsharing service of Volkswagen Jetta cars, launching this week in Washington, D.C. and Arlington, Virginia. The Ridecell technology solution includes the consumer-facing mobile application, payment processing, real-time parking information and predictive analytics for fleet operations and maintenance.
“Penske Dash chose Ridecell to power our shared mobility services because the company’s comprehensive platform can run everything from our consumer-facing application to payment processing,” said Michael Montri, Chief Operating Officer of Penske Dash. “With Ridecell, we can ensure our fleet operates at peak efficiencies and our customers have a positive and easy experience reserving, locating, driving and returning our cars.”
The Ridecell platform enables companies to start new shared mobility services such as carsharing or ridehailing, or optimize the operational efficiencies and fleet utilisation of an existing shared mobility service to improve profitability. End-to-end mobility service automation includes instant driver verification, payment processing, on-demand reservations, demand/supply balancing, and fleet operations. The Ridecell platform lets customers roll out innovations quickly and customise their offering with Ridecell APIs.
“Penske has been a leader in the transportation services business for many years,” said Aarjav Trivedi, CEO of Ridecell. “Our mission is to help move the world better as the new age of transportation unfolds. We are thrilled to help Penske enter the market as a carsharing provider.”
