With cities expanding and the lifting of pandemic restrictions creating pricing fluctuations in the private transport marketplace, it has become challenging for consumers to navigate the personal mobility maze. Placie has been created to simplify this transport landscape for consumers via one easy-to-use app, saving them time, money, and effort in the process. Placie’s transport partners are all accredited and in the case of an emergency, consumers can raise an emergency alert within the app.
Technology used in the Placie app can easily scale to provide trip planning in many major cities around the world. The integration of companies such as Ola and taxi backend dispatch systems are also scalable and in use in many markets, ensuring that Placie can readily be implemented in other countries.
Beyond rideshares, taxis and public transport, Placie also has the ability to aggregate services such as airport shuttles, chauffeured vehicles, car rental, car-share, e-scooter and carparking.
Placie was soft launched in January 2021 as a Beta version, and officially launched nationwide in November 2021. Placie has already helped tens of thousands of Australians get from A to B smarter, faster, and cheaper, putting users of the app in the driver’s seat to make informed decisions on various modes they may take to complete their trips.
