ProntoShuttles
today announced the launch of 'Book My Shuttle' - an open
shuttle booking platform for turnkey operation of fixed route, fixed
price event shuttles for sporting events, concerts and other large scale
events as well as crowd-sourced, dynamic price shuttles created by and
for groups for any occasion, any destination and for groups of any size
nationwide.

In a related announcement, ProntoShuttles also announced the launch of
several curated Pronto-sponsored fan shuttle services showcasing the

  • 49ers home games @ Levi's Stadium
  • Dallas Cowboys home games @ AT&T Stadium
  • Other concerts - Outside Lands, Willamette County Music Festival, Kid
    Rock

"We are excited about the launch of our turnkey shuttle booking platform
and fan shuttles for these blockbuster events," said Al Linden,
ProntoShuttle's Director of Marketing. "Our ability to offer these
shuttles covering such a large footprint on such a large scale showcases
the ease-of-use and scalability of our platform not just for booking but
also for automated shuttle management and operation. We have perfected
our platform to the point where we can set up and launch shuttles for
event of any size, scale, scope and coverage in a matter of minutes."

The Book My Shuttle platform enables two primary modes of shuttle
services:

  • Fixed route, fixed schedule, fixed location, fixed price shuttles for
    Commuter service, Transit service, Conventions, Political / public
    rallies, Sporting Events, Concerts
  • Customized route, schedule, location(s) with dynamic, variable
    price shuttles for ad hoc groups
    for Crowd-sourced Events for
    outdoor activities - skiing / snowboarding, rafting, sightseeing - and
    social activities - wine tasting, casino outings, birthday bashes, etc.

Over the past few years, ProntoShuttles.com has built a loyal customer
base with its San Francisco 49ers, President's Cup and Pebble Beach
Golf, UC Berkeley Cal football fan shuttle services and skiing /
snowboarding shuttle services which have served more than 55,000 fans.

The new platform has been built as an open platform for event organizers
to develop and operate their own shuttle. With the social media and
networking incorporated as a core element, the platform is ideal for
crowd-sourced event shuttles booking. The platform also incorporates
shuttle operation, management and tracking by linking it with ProntoResTM,
the company's cloud-based reservation system, to offer a complete,
turnkey shuttle booking and management platform to event organizers and
to venue and stadium management companies.

"Ride sharing service model and Charter service models are not well
suited for per seat booking model for event shuttles and for any group
outing where the composition and headcount are dynamic and unknown and
where each person pays for the trip," said Cory Smith, VP of Business
Development. "Our Book My Shuttle platform addresses the
needs of both types of shuttle service models - event shuttles and group
shuttles - making it an ideal platform for the $15B event shuttle
services market serving an estimated 500M+ fans and $29B leisure
activity market serving 763M attendees in the US."

Pronto-sponsored curated shuttles and crowd-sourced event shuttle
booking platform are available and open for booking nationwide. The
turnkey open & crowd-sourced event shuttle booking and management
platform is also available now for Event and Venue organizers who wish
to license it to set up and offer their own branded shuttle services.
