World Moto, Inc.: Yes™ App Launched on Google Play

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Mar 4, 2015) - World Moto, Inc. (OTCBB: FARE) (OTCQB: FARE) (BERLIN: WM7) (BERLIN: A1J8SY) ("World Moto" or the "Company") today announced that it has launched the Yes™ application for Android devices on Google Play in advance of commercial operation of its Yes™ platform. 

World Moto is preparing for the start of commercial operation of Yes™ on March 9, having completed a successful soft launch of the platform. Services will be introduced over a 6 square kilometer area in the densest part of Wattana district in downtown Bangkok, with plans to eventually cover the entire Greater Metropolitan Area before expanding throughout the country and into international markets. The offering will leverage public convenience store chains to deliver food, refreshments, personal and childcare products, stationery, and other necessities to the district's nearly 100,000 inhabitants in minutes. This unprecedented capability is made possible through World Moto's extensive relationships with drivers and operators in the motorcycle taxi community.

The Company estimates that the market for personal retail delivery may grow to as many as 2 million shipments per day in Bangkok alone, and will reach into the many hundreds of millions per day globally. Nearly all types of local commerce and commodities are candidates to be serviced by Yes™, representing a worldwide industry worth trillions of dollars annually.

The Company intends to use its Wheelies™ technology to advertise Yes™ in the target area. Wheelies™ are a personal digital canvas in the physical world that can display full motion images and stunning visual graphics on the spinning wheels of motorcycles. When used to display advertising, a roaming motorcycle equipped with Wheelies™ provides one of the few means of accessing a target audience in an arbitrary geographically localized area. Wheelies™ represent a critical advertising medium for the launch of Yes™.

The Company has developed an innovative yet familiar interface that internal testing has shown to offer the industry's fastest time to order completion. Based on the concept of a stylish vending machine, the interface allows a consumer to complete a purchase of multiple items in as few as 10 seconds.

World Moto CEO, Paul Giles, stated, "Our highly differentiated offering is unlike any other and we anticipate that it will be very popular with people who appreciate the convenience of instant availability." 

The Yes™ app is immediately available for download on Google Play by users in Thailand. The Company has also made the Yes™ app available to all users directly at 
(Note that new items for delivery will be continuously added.)
