A few weeks ago I heard about a new rideshare company called Opoli. Opoli is a company that connects professional fully licensed commercial drivers with passengers. It’s kind of like an on demand Uber Black car service but with a much wider variety of vehicles and pricing. Like Uber, everything is cashless but 100% of the fare goes straight to the driver.
Being a rideshare blogger, this company obviously piqued my interest and after adding them to my Rideshare List I reached out to them via Twitter and started chatting with their social media rep. At the time, I was actually looking to book a ride home for right after our wedding. Most of the limo companies I called required a 3 hour minimum which seemed kind of silly considering we only needed a 30 minute ride. But since you can reserve rides with Opoli, it seemed like the perfect solution.

One of the biggest pitfalls to services like Lyft and Uber is that you can’t reserve a car ahead of time.

With Opoli though, you can submit a ride request for pick-up right now or at any point in the future. [Read more…]
