29 May 2018 Australian-owned ride-booking app GoCatch to begin driving Canberra Airport customers.

Australian-owned ride-booking app GoCatch now offers taxi and private rideshare car pickups at Canberra Airport broadening the transportation options available to Canberrans and visitors to the ACT.

With a few taps on the smartphone, passengers can use GoCatch to book a private rideshare car, taxi, maxi or premium hire car for an immediate trip or reserve a driver in advance from 30 minutes up to 1 year.

“We look to partner with companies who put a lot of thought into customer satisfaction and quality of service. GoCatch is an Australian-owned company that has catered to travellers transportation needs by offering so many vehicle and booking choices” says Stephen Byron, Managing Director of Canberra Airport.

GoCatch brings more than 60,000 registered drivers nationwide and 1500 registered taxi and rideshare drivers in Canberra. Since 2011, GoCatch has cultivated a strong network of professional and experienced taxi drivers. Local travellers and visitors booking with the app can be confident that their data and company profits remain in Australia to benefit the Australian economy.

GoCatch’s Fastest Route Guarantee means that you never pay more than the fastest route. The addition of this new ride service will help to alleviate waiting in taxi queues at the airport during peak travel times. A popular app among taxi drivers, passengers can be assured a GoCatch taxi driver is just around the corner.

“We are looking forward to driving even more Canberrans by extending our service to pickups at Canberra Airport. We know they are early adopters, who prefer using apps to book cars and taxis and we know they’ll appreciate our ‘Fastest Route Guarantee’ which uses APIs and real-time data to get you where you want to go quickly” says Andrew Campbell, CEO of GoCatch.

“We are excited to offer GoCatch as an option because of the flexibility they offer customers. With winter coming on quickly, passengers can book a private car or taxi and wait in our heated waiting area, designed to let passengers wait in comfort, no matter the season,” says Stephen Byron, Managing Director of Canberra Airport.

To promote the launch, GoCatch is offering Canberrans $20 off their next trip and 25% credit back on all trips until 30 June 2018 with the code CBRGOCATCH.
GoCatch is available today at Canberra Airport and other locations throughout the ACT via the App Store or via Google Play.
