World Moto Releases Video Highlighting Its New Android/iOS Application Integrated With the Moto-Meter™

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Feb 2, 2015) - World Moto, Inc. (OTCBB: FARE) (OTCQB: FARE) (BERLIN: WM7) (BERLIN: A1J8SY) ("World Moto" or the "Company") today announced that it has released a video of the Moto-Meter™ showing examples of the features and capabilities afforded by its new customer smartphone application.

The video, which can be viewed at, underlines just some of the many potential uses for this advanced technology as applied to motorcycle taxis. Motorcycle taxis are the world's most numerous type of taxi, engaging in over 15 times more daily journeys than automobile taxicabs, and the video demonstrates how the Moto-Meter™ and new unified smartphone application can seamlessly provide services to the billions of users who comprise this unique market.

The smartphone application connects directly to the Moto-Meter™ via a secure Bluetooth connection, and can access data from the meter in real-time, giving users the ability to view ratings and a profile of the driver before getting on the bike. During the ride, it provides continuous analysis on the fare and GPS location, augmenting the Moto-Meter's already significant anti-tampering security protocols, as well as transmitting the location to designated individuals or safety monitoring services. The application also has the ability to offer customized products and services to the users during the ride, with the purchase conveniently added to the fare. As credit card use is still limited in the demographic that usually engages motorcycle taxis for their daily mobility, this feature can often prevent a special trip to a convenience store to pay for the needed product.

Of particular note in the video is the ability to offer per trip insurance to motorcycle taxi passengers for a nominal fee. In much of the developing world, the operators of such taxis are often uninsured or underinsured, and additional third party insurance can either augment the user's own insurance or provide benefits to those whose own policies may restrict coverage. While optional insurance is common in the case of long distance travel such as with airlines, the ability to offer pay per trip micro insurance for local driving is a unique feature not currently offered. The Company anticipates that this type of novel service, which requires both a regulated and trusted device on the motorcycle plus a trusted device of the purchaser, will be a strong driver of Moto-Meter™ sales.
