“Travelers have historically used Embarque service for pre-planned travel between two points, such as a ride to the airport from their office or home,” said Gary L.

Embarque 10&2 service provides high-quality, standards-based on-demand chauffeured car service within ten minutes, two hours, or beyond, via an award-winning technology-enabled hailing app delivering passengers the freedom to travel on their schedule while receiving a safe and predictable experience.

Embarque will continue offering its traditional portfolio of pre-arranged services to the San Francisco area such as point-to-point transfer services, including airports, hotels, resorts, cruise ports, and convention centers and as-directed service chartered hourly.  Embarque 10&2 on-demand service will include vehicles and chauffeurs from both the Embarque and Carey brands, assuring vehicle availability and the highest levels of service possible.

San Francisco travelers can access Embarque 10&2 service immediately by downloading the Embarque mobile app (available for iOS and Android), by logging into the Embarque web site (www.embarque.com), or through the Embarque 24-hour Global Customer Engagement Center at 866-444-2144.
