Metro Cars Introduces Service To Ensure Passenger Safety

Posted on April 28, 2016

TAYLOR, Mich. -- Metro Cars, a Detroit-based ground transportation service, recently introduced its new ‘Chauffeur Direct’ service -- an automated messenger system that introduces passengers to their driver up to one hour before pick up.

Passengers are provided with the driver’s photo and cell phone number. During the trip, real time tracking updates can be provided to both the passenger and anyone they designate.

“Metro Cars has long been an industry leader in ensuring passenger safety,” commented Metro Cars CEO Daniel Ret. “This service is a natural continuation of our commitment to putting the customer’s safety first.”

Although not created in response to the recent tragedies surrounding Uber and other newer transportation companies, this new service reinforces the importance of choosing the right company. .

Passengers can book a ride through Metro Cars’ new online booking app, which is available for download. Once booked, all aspects of the ride can be tracked via the online app or through text message.

Information: Paula Mikola at (734) 946-1701.
