ZTrip: The new face of taxi

The new face of taxi

zTrip was founded in January 2018 as “the new face of taxi”—a hybrid between traditional taxi service and the modern convenience of ride booking applications.

The company, based in Kansas City, transports approximately 18 million passengers per year across the United States. Like traditional taxi cabs, riders may book a ride over the phone or hail a zTrip vehicle wherever they are—or, like the mobile applications offered by Uber and Lyft, they may book trips on the robust zTrip app, complete with saved payment methods, up-to-theminute updates, and ride and driver preference selection capabilities.

zTrip is focused on and committed to:

  • Safely transporting students to and from school
  • Picking up elderly patients from surgery in wheelchair-accessible vehicles
  • Shipping services with hassle-free deliveries

We have almost been able to cut our monthly operating costs for wireless services in half, which is huge for us,” said Derrick Hilmoe, Business Development Manager at zTrip. “I can activate or cancel devices at the drop of a hat… there’s no penalty there for me. I don’t have to worry about spending $200 to cancel a line, which means substantial savings for our business and helps us keep our costs competitive.
