Best Rideshare company in Austin
Elektrica Limo Vs Rideshare
Rideshare companies are similar to black car services in how they operate, with a few key differences. Both dispatch out work to drivers based on their availability, and neither company has control over the cars or the presentation of the drivers. However, black car services are licensed with the city and permitted to provide “Meet and Greets” at airports during pickups.
Rideshares are frequently on demand, however they are not permitted nor licensed with the city to operate as a chauffeur or black car service. Rideshares also tend to charge higher than black car services for trips in similar vehicles due to the on-demand nature.
We are able to provide a much higher quality experience in a much nicer, safer, better maintained vehicle for less. We also offer a mobile app for quick and easy bookings as well as being able to schedule rides for events or weddings.
When you book a ride at Elektrica, you know what type of vehicle will be picking you up, you know the driver will be licensed as a chauffeur with the city, as well as background and drug checked, and you pay much less than with a similar rideshare service.
We can compare our prices to that of similar rideshare services to see the difference. Our rate to go from Round Rock to the airport in a Tesla Model S is $106.25 ($75 rate for the car and $31.25 for the 12.5 miles over the 15 that are included with the trip). The same trip using the Lux or luxury option of a leading rideshare service is $114.92. Combined with the differences in quality and service and Elektrica is your number one transportation company.
Austin-Bergstrom International Airport, recently launched a new designated pickup area for people using rideshares. Now when you want to be picked up from ABIA using rideshare you will need to leave the baggage claim and head to the parking garage. You can then take the stairs or walk through the orange cones. Sometimes you will have an option to have a shuttle take you to the area. With Elektrica a chauffeur in a suit will help you with your luggage and since Elektrica is permitted with ABIA and the City of Austin we can leave our cars parked curbside right outside of arrivals.
