Whether Queenslanders and NRL fans are heading to a mate’s barbeque, work, drinks or a weekend of family fun, the smarter way to get around is to get around Placie with fast, cheap and smart mobility solutions.
Developed in Australia and available to download from app stores, Placie is a one-stop transport app for consumers to save time, money and effort, using real-time data for on-demand and scheduling via one account.
Using Placie, consumers can select travel options based on their preferences and comfort – these include public transport options as well as taxi and popular rideshare services.
“We’re thrilled to have Placie hit the app stores and what better way to launch than in
Queensland in time for the NRL Grand Final,” said Placie’s Acting CEO, Ed Myer.
Placie has footy fans sorted and can provide NRL goers with a fast way to the footy, and a cheap way home for those wanting to relish in victory following the game.
“With new transport behaviours and habits continuing to evolve, and Queenslanders returning to city-based leisure and work activities, Placie is the only app that compares rideshare and taxi services for a fast or cheap way to get to a BBQ, drinks or the big game,” continued Myer.
“Consumers can find and compare transport options based on their preferences, including cost or time, with access to some of our best-in-class partners including Ola, 13cabs and Black and White Cabs,” Myer added.
To go in the draw to win the ultimate NRL Grand Final Experience for two, Queenslanders need to download the Placie app, and book and complete a taxi or rideshare trip. ^ To sweeten the deal, Placie is providing over 15,000 Queenslanders with $20 off their first ride via the code ‘FOOTY20’.* First Placie rides must be completed by Wednesday, 29 September to be in the running.
The ultimate NRL Grand Final Experience package for two includes exclusive access to the Garden Bar pre-match, half time and post-match, gold category reserved grandstand seating, a traditional footy style menu, drinks, appearances from Rugby League Legends, a corporate gift and more. ^
Placie can be downloaded via the Google Play Store or Apple App Store. Once consumers create an account, including their preferred payment method, they will be able to compare and book different transport modes.
Placie functionality will continue to evolve over the next year as further partners are integrated into the app. For further information, visit www.placie.com.
