Regency Global Transportation, Driver of Choice for G-20 Summit, Will "Tweet" Live Traffic Conditions

PITTSBURGH, PA--(Marketwire - September 24, 2009) - Regency Global Transportation Group, Ltd., the leader in first-class, reliable ground transportation, will play a pivotal role in this week's G-20 Summit as the transportation provider for half a dozen delegations representing the world's most powerful nations -- more than any other local transportation company.

At the same time, Regency will debut a new Twitter traffic service for the Pittsburgh region, as its dispatchers will be "tweeting" first-hand traffic conditions as Regency's dozens of drivers navigate the Pittsburgh area during the summit.

As an executive transportation company that must know road conditions to do its job, Regency unveiled its Twitter identity (http://twitter.com/regencytrans/) in time for the G-20, so that real-time traffic tweets would help the Pittsburgh community learn of security-caused traffic situations caused by the gathering of world financial leaders not just downtown, but on major arteries such as the airport corridor and in surrounding communities.

Each "tweet" will include the hashtag "#regtraffic" so Twitter users can easily receive updated traffic information. On an ongoing basis, Regency plans to use Twitter to provide followers daily transportation news, real-time traffic updates from on-road drivers and local news, as well as appropriate promotional information for the company.

The busy months leading up to G-20 have been filled with coordination between Regency staff and the nations they will be serving. Regency has brought additional cars and drivers to Pittsburgh to accommodate the large number of people it will be transporting between the airport, hotels, the David L. Lawrence Convention Center where the G-20 will be held, as well as additional venues that will be hosting the delegates before and after the summit.

"Not only are we a part of one of the biggest events Pittsburgh has ever seen, but we are stepping forward to help the community by sharing what we know in the social media space," said Tom Miller, Regency president and CEO. "Our goal is to strike a balance between serving the world's leaders, and also serving the Pittsburgh community with up-to-the-minute traffic news from our drivers, who are out on the roads every day. This is another example of how Regency is striving to exceed our client's needs and expectations through quality, reliability, and exceptional customer service."
