Digital Dispatch Gains Momentum in Small Taxi Fleet Market

Company will Announce 2007 Second Quarter Results on August 14, 2007

RICHMOND, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Aug. 9, 2007) - Boosting its market presence in the smaller taxi fleet market, Digital Dispatch Systems Inc. (TSX:DD) has recently won new contracts with several taxi companies with less than 100-vehicle fleets.

Digital Dispatch will soon be equipping the 20-vehicle transportation services of Yale University, New Haven, Connecticut with iPilot 8000™ mobile computers and PathFinder™ dispatch software application. Yale University, one of the premier institutions for higher education recognized around the world, operates its own on-demand and fixed route transportation services that are free for students and faculty in the town of New Haven. As this service is provided on a 24 hour basis, Yale University is focused on maintaining rider security and safety. They have selected Digital Dispatch's PathFinder™ with auto Callout functionality that notifies passengers when their rides arrive to ensure that riders do not have to wait out in the dark for their rides.

Brampton Kwik Cab of Ontario also turned to Digital Dispatch choosing a PathFinder™ dispatch application for its 80-vehicle fleet management needs. This expands Digital Dispatch's presence in the Toronto area taxi market. On the West Coast, Somali Taxi of San Diego, California, has chosen PathFinder™ dispatch application and the iPilot 8000™ for its 11-vehicle fleet.

"The fact that more and more smaller taxi fleets across the U.S. and Canada are turning to Digital Dispatch is a reassurance that our products are being recognized for their scalability and affordability within this taxi market segment," said Cliff Snelling, Vice President of Marketing for Digital Dispatch. "It is also rewarding to see our customer profiles diversify alongside this increasing market presence. Yale University contacted us directly for their needs and this is a confirmation that our brand is now being recognized outside the taxi industry."
