Boston Coach Setup

Limo Anywhere is integrated with Boston Coach. You can now receive trips directly in your Limo Anywhere system from Boston Coach.

Once your company has been connected to Boston Coach in order to receive trips you will need to have some settings and mappings set up.

 

Vehicle Type Mapping

Make sure all of your Vehicle Types are mapped into their appropriate category under Network>Partner Network tab. We provide you with several categories and you just need to drag and drop those Vehicle Types under the category the Vehicle Type fits into.

You must have your:

  1. Sedan mapped under Sedan category
  2. SUV mapped under SUV category
  3. Sprinter mapped under Mini Van category
  4. Limo mapped under All Limousines category
  5. Greeter mapped under All Other Vehicles category VehTypeMapping.png
