FREE RIDES coming to West Chester!
West Chester Free Ride, the all new eco-friendly free transportation service and mobile advertising platform, just announced that it will be launching in West Chester, PA in September 2019. As proud members of the Greater West Chester Chamber of Commerce, West Chester Free Ride celebrated their promotional soft launch during two events in March, and the feedback from the community and local businesses was overwhelmingly positive.
From Greater West Chester Chamber of Commerce president and CEO, Mark Yoder, to West Chester mayor, Dianne Herrin, numerous local businesses have expressed their excitement in anticipation of the new, 100% electric ride service coming to West Chester – fully expecting it to become the “hottest free ride” in the Borough!
So how does it work? Operating initially on weekend evenings and expanding to daily service based on rider demand, West Chester Free Ride Mobile (www.wcfreeride.com/mobile.html) enables riders to reserve a free ride online, call/text on demand, leave reviews and check out sponsor offers all from their smartphone with no app download required. Riders booking reservations receive a confirmation of their pickup via text message, with links to promotional offers at nearby businesses. They are greeted with “Black Car Service” treatment upon arrival, including opening of doors, distribution of sponsor giveaways, premium sound system and lighting – all through their eco-friendly, 100% electric vehicles. Shuttles also include ad kiosks that display advertisements provided by local sponsors within the community.
Free Ride is currently looking for monthly, semester, and seasonal sponsors within the community that want to advertise through the new West Chester Free Ride, and they are recruiting licensed drivers to join the team.
The West Chester Free Ride Official Launch Party & Ribbon Cutting Event will take place on Saturday, September 7th, 2019 from 11:30AM – 1PM at Iron Hill Brewery & Restaurant. Register here to attend.
