SFLaunchRideScout, an app that helps people find transportation, announced it is expanding to the San Francisco area.
The Austin-based company has also recently expanded its coverage to include “Sidecar, Silvercar, Muni, BART, Caltrain, Golden Gate Transit, AC Transit, Blue & Gold Fleet, Baylink Ferry and SamTrans — along with Flywheel, City CarShare, Bay Area Bike Share, and Scoot– as well as walking, driving, and even parking with Parking Panda,” according to its news release.
The free mobile app, available for both iOS and Android mobile systems, aggregates all ground transportation options for users.
“From day one, we have received requests for RideScout in San Francisco, as people have seen how easy and efficient it is to get around a city with our app,” Joseph Kopser, RideScout Co-Founder and CEO said in a news release. “The Bay Area has a wealth of ground transportation options, but the fastest or cheapest ride is not always clear. With RideScout, people can choose the best transportation option based on their needs right then and there, wherever they are, sorting by arrival time, cost or type of ride.”
RideScout is also available in Washington, D.C., where it launched in November of 2013 and Austin. It plans to add more partners in the Spring.
