WeDriveU and Global Ground Automation Extend Corporate Ground Travel Choices and Savings With Chauffeur Drive

Add a Driver for Your Car or Your Avis Rental -- Book Chauffeur Drive Online via Global Ground Automation

BURLINGAME, CA--(Marketwire - Jul 13, 2011) - WeDriveU, Inc., the leader in professional driver staffing, today announced a partnership with Global Ground Automation, Inc. (GGA), a Rearden Commerce company, to integrate Chauffeur Drive by WeDriveU with GGA's online ground transportation marketplace. Corporate travel managers, agents and employees can now add a WeDriveU chauffeur for meetings, business travel, event shuttles and social occasions through global distribution systems (GDS) or corporate booking tools powered by GGA.

WeDriveU offers chauffeurs and security drivers throughout the U.S. and Canada who drive you in your car or your Avis rental vehicle. With this partnership, GGA is automating and centralizing all aspects of adding a dedicated driver from WeDriveU for itineraries that range from a full day of meetings to a week-long event.

"Organizations have many choices in ground transportation, so we're excited to team with an industry leader like GGA to share the benefits of Chauffeur Drive with travel and procurement departments," said Dennis Carlson, founder and chief executive officer, WeDriveU. "Helping corporations reduce costs doesn't mean not traveling, it's about making full day ground travel more affordable and practical. Traveling in your own car or your Avis rental vehicle not only saves 30-40% over other options, it also conveys the right image, and that makes Chauffeur Drive the ideal choice for companies in this economy."

"WeDriveU has an innovative offering that's transforming the way corporations think of full day car and driver use," said Gregg Tuccillo, president, Global Ground Automation. "Integrating WeDriveU's Chauffeur Drive service into an overall travel management plan offers considerable cost savings, and we're excited to share the benefits with our customers and partners."
