It’s pretty crazy to think that even a year ago, L.A. residents were still subjecting themselves on a regular basis to screaming matches, lost phones, purposely misguided routes and other such horrors in cabs.
Thankfully, with the emergence of Lyft and Uber, hiring a service to merely get us down the street no longer comes with a guaranteed heart attack. But like with everything else, we are constantly coming up with products to “one-up” the latest trend.
We can now add Opoli to our list of transportation apps. Comparable to Uber black car, the program offers a luxury vehicle to get you around town. But here’s the kicker: Unlike as in the case with Uber, Opoli requires you to select the driver, the car and the price (that the driver mutually agrees with). And voila, your dream ride awaits!
I attended the launch event for the app last week at STK in L.A., and I’m excited to share a special $30-off promo code with my skyelyfe readers. Just download the app on your iPhone, register and enter STKLA14 for your VIP discount.
Safe travels, everyone!
