As many of you know by now the Flywheel app, and it's related businesses, have recently been purchased by us, the CabConnect Technologies team. First, we have to apologize for this delayed communication.  We have been working on the transitional team, and as with any transition, there have been bumps we have had to deal with.

We do know that payments have been delayed, but rest assured they are coming.  Nothing matters more to us than getting payments handled, and ensuring that you are getting pa...

VSC was selected to help reinvigorate Flywheel, a three-year old mobile taxi-hailing app platform bringing on-demand technology to the millions of taxis already on the streets of the world. Our goal was to become the definitive taxi-hailing application among competitors such as Taxi Magic, Way2Ride and Arro.

About three months ago we unveiled the all new Flywheel Driver Portal and since then we have been getting a lot of great feedback from drivers on the features they want, and the overall usability of the system. We took this feedback and completely rebuilt our portal, keeping what was good and changing the things that could be better.

Today we are relaunching the portal and we wanted to let everyone know how to register as well as the features available to you in the Flywheel Driver Portal.

What is...

We love reading about taxi drivers who go above and beyond to provide great service to riders. That's why we got such a kick out of a recent story out of Boston, where a passenger left an astonishing $187,000 in the back of the cab.

According to CBS Boston, the driver Raymond “Buzzy” MacCausland promptly drove to the police station and turned in the money. We all know this is the right thing to do, but we should definitely celebrate those with with such great character. The passenger also gave Bu...

Too often stories about the taxi industry and its struggles against companies like Uber and Lyft tend to only focus on the business side of the equation and don't closely examine the human cost involved. Today we read a great story from the NY Post that explores how drivers are coping after losing financial stability thanks to inequities in regulation and a brutal correction in NYC taxi medallion values. We also get some interesting tidbits on the history of the medallion system in NYC, which pr...

Here at Flywheel we work very closely with drivers and passengers, and pay attention to companies like Uber and Lyft that compete with cabs for business. We often see the huge numbers associated with these companies $60 billion valuations, $500 million fundraises and millions of rides. But what can we learn by examining numbers closely? How do top level decisions and business plans affect the drivers and passengers?

In the past couple weeks, both companies have had significant leaks of their inte...

Taxis have always been a great way to capture some of the local flavors of a city, and it’s not surprising to find that your driver might have a hidden talent or two. Over the weekend, the San Francisco Chronicle had a fun piece on driver Buzz Brooks who over the past decade has brought the simple joy of Cabaret to, well, your cab. Dubbed the “Kabaret Kab Experience” this is definitely a ride you won’t soon forget.


Brooks has been driving a cab for over 30 years and uses music and singing to cre...

The world of transportation has always been a competitive business. Getting people from point A to point B safely and quickly will always be a top priority. Mobile technology has only fueled the competitive fires both in the entrenched taxi hardware makers and the big-money TNC startups. Misinformation flourishes in the shadows so we thought it would be good to shine some light on some of the half-truths and downright lies we hear about Flywheel and taxis.

Myth 1: There’s never a taxi n...

I know we spend a lot of our time here reaching out to riders, but we also want to help our drivers navigate features just for them.


Today we are taking a look at the updated Flywheel Driver Portal, including how to register if you are a new user and a run down of the helpful features.


What is the Flywheel Driver Portal?
