DROP, an online transportation service provider, has officially launched operations in Guyana. This announcement was made via a radio broadcast and through advertisements on the company’s social media page.
DROP joins the market as the second transportation service provider conducting operations through an online mobile application. This business initiative reached Guyana following the emergence and success of similar business entities, such as UBER and LYFT in the United States.
But while offering services that are similar to those which are already in existence, DROP promises to go the extra mile in providing added features which will benefit its customers. Drop claims to be Guyana’s ultimate on-demand taxi/transportation application, connecting thousands of passengers to independent drivers all across the country.
DROP is currently creating a vast network to make transportation quick, easy and reliable for both passengers and drivers, while guaranteeing safety. The unique business initiative allows passengers to save money with much lower rates, while giving anyone in possession of a car the opportunity to work part-time or full time in providing rides to earn an income.
Chief Executive Officer of DROP, John Singh, has said that unlike its local competitors, DROP is USA developed, engineered and supported, which means the DROP’s apps are more likely to be safer and more secure to use than any other similar apps that may be released in Guyana.
It is important to note that while customers are comparing DROP to UBER, this transportation service differs to some extent, especially in regard to plans to offer a much more customized service for Guyanese. Furthermore, the CEO indicated, if successful in Guyana, DROP plans to roll out services throughout the Caribbean.
Hundreds of potential passengers have already downloaded the DROP app within the few days it has been launched. Numerous drivers have also indicated interest, and have already grasped the opportunity to earn an income through this technologically-advanced approach, replacing the many conventional taxi services which have been operating throughout the country.
DROP is therefore pleased to announce that it has been receiving excellent responses in the short period since commencing this service, and is currently recruiting drivers from all corners of Guyana. Interested car owners are invited to contact DROP at 227-0873, or to visit its offices at 20 Bel Air Road, Lamaha Gardens Georgetown to register as a driver with the company.
The DROP app is now available for download on Android and Apple iOS App Stores on mobile devices worldwide.
