Taking several vehicles just so everyone can get to the same destination can be a hassle. Those days are long over now that Fetii has come into the picture. Fetii is a ride-sharing app that provides on demand group rides for users to book for their upcoming events. Fetii offers on demand group rides to groups of 5- 50 people. No other app available in the market can provide this to their users.
How it Started
Pyro Equity, a business development firm managed by world class investors Matthew Iommi and Justin Rath, is known for its success in building and scaling multiple technology-based businesses. Using its elite team of digital marketers, developers, and managers, Pyro Equity is equipped to invest in startups and build them into titans of that industry.
Iommi and Rath both saw a market opportunity in the transportation industry and began to capitalize on it immediately. Iommi and Rath took an outdated group transportation model and evolved it into what is now known as Fetii.
Types of Fetii Vehicles
Fetii is currently offering two types of vehicles users can select when booking a ride through the app. Depending on the number of passengers, users can ride the Fetii van or the Fetii bus.
The Fetii van can hold up to 14 passengers. The average cost per person to ride this vehicle is roughly $4. In order to book this vehicle there needs to be a minimum of 6 passengers in order to start the trip.
The Fetii bus can hold up to 25 passengers. The average cost per person to ride this vehicle is roughly $6. In order to book this vehicle there needs to be a minimum of 15 passengers in order to start the trip.
Booking/Scheduling a Ride
Once you download the Fetii app, you must have a payment method set in order to book a ride. When the payment method is set up, you are able to book a ride to your desired destination. You can then choose what vehicle you prefer to ride in based on the estimated number of passengers.
With Fetii, you do not need to enter the amount of people that are going to be riding. This is to accommodate people who don’t know the exact number of people who are going to be riding the Fetii.
Fetii also allows you to schedule a future ride. You are able to schedule a ride up to a month in advance. The steps for scheduling a ride is the same, instead of clicking “Book a Ride”, you click “Schedule a Ride”. The process is simple and the app is very easy to navigate.
When riders are checking in, they must have the Fetii app downloaded onto their mobile device. They also must have a payment method saved in the Fetii app. (This also applies if you have a free ride). Payment methods include PayPal, Apple Pay, and Debit/Credit Card.
When your Fetii vehicle arrives, everyone who is going to ride needs to check-in. When checking in, the Fetii app will ask how many passengers you are paying for. If you are just paying for yourself, you would put only “1”. If you are paying for yourself and other riders, you just put the number of people you are paying for plus yourself. If someone else is paying for your ride, you would put the number “0”.
Each vehicle has a unique QR code that the riders must scan through the Fetii app in order to board the vehicle. Payment will be taken as soon as the rider scans the QR code.Every single rider must scan the QR code regardless if someone else is paying for them. They will not get charged when they scan if someone has paid for them.
Moving forward, Fetii will continue to increase in popularity and is soon to be a leader in the group transportation market. We can only expect growth and expansion in the future as the company will be sure to expand to other states in the United States and in the future even expand world-wide. Only time will tell.
