DENVER, Colo.— Dav El│BostonCoach Transportation Network and EmpireCLS Worldwide Chauffeured Services said July 20 they would launch a nationwide on-demand app for the luxury ground transportation industry.

The two major global chauffeured transportation companies announced the service at the Global Business Travel Association annual convention in Denver. 

The on-demand app will join several hundred affiliates across the country to enable the availability of an extensive on-demand — or “ASAP Fleet” — of luxury cars. New York City will be the first location to launch later this summer, followed by a systematic roll out of destinations across the U.S, the release stated.

The new app will provide corporate clients and consumers with the convenience of tap and ride style transportation with a high level of service and safety measures (including background checks, drug testing, insurance, defensive driver training, etc.) which can only be available from companies who have spent years training and managing professional chauffeurs. 

“This is an exciting time in the chauffeured car industry,” said Scott Solombrino, president and CEO, Dav El│BostonCoach Transportation Network. “It is extremely important to both companies that our clients continue to receive the highest level of customer care they have always enjoyed, while at the same time have access to the immediacy of on-demand technology which smartphones and portable devices can now provide.”

“Our new On-Demand service will streamline the process for clients to book rides with us and our affiliates,” said EmpireCLS Chairman and CEO David Seelinger. “The app is our safe solution for clients who need last-minute transportation and have high expectations for the quality of their ride.”

More details on how the new app will be set up and connected will be announced at a later date.
