USA Today Compares New App With Two Competitors

USA TODAY: Reserving a chauffeured town car or limousine today can be as easy as moving a red pin on an interactive map.

With car-service mobile apps from companies such as LimoRes, and Uber coming into their own, smartphone-wielding travelers looking to book a ride have handy new alternatives to making their reservations over the phone or online.

While the free LimoRes (iPhone) and (iPhone and Android) apps can help you make a car-service reservation throughout much of the USA and globally, Uber's free app (iPhone and Android) currently offers reservations only in New York City and San Francisco/Palo Alto for immediate, "on-demand" service.

    Don't understand why any limousine company would accept work. They advertise 40% discounts over standard rates. What limo company can discount 40% and pay the booking fees/20% commission to This is a business model that I fear is going to destroy the industry, kill our profit margins, and commoditize our service.
