All-in-one transportation app begins their “Summer of 69” with increased app coverage in North America.

Austin, TX-June 9, 2014: Today, RideScout, the technology platform revolutionizing how people find and use ground transportation, announced their expansion to a total of 69 cities in North America, beginning their “Summer of 69.” Prior to today, RideScout had full coverage in five US cities.

In their free iOS and Android apps, RideScout brings together 337 transportation services, enabling 186 million people to search for rides, discover more options and explore dozens of cities, with more coming soon.

“In a short period of time, RideScout has secured relationships with ride providers in these 69 locations and people from cities around the world who have been asking for RideScout, a marketplace for all their transportation options,” said Joseph Kopser, Co-Founder and CEO of RideScout. “Our ride search engine has allowed us to scale quickly across North America, integrating both nationwide and hyperlocal solutions, something none of our competitors have been able to match.”

RideScout offers national carshare services like Zipcar and car2go, bikeshare systems like Citibike, Bay Area Bikeshare and B-Cycle nationwide, and taxi services like Hailo and Flywheel, enabling the company to expand coast to coast at a rapid pace. Integration of local services like City CarShare in San Francisco, or Gett in New York City tie RideScout to the local transportation community.

“RideScout is a great example of innovation, a company that is moving fast to solve one of our country’s biggest challenges-transportation,” said Aneesh Chopra, former White House CTO, author of “Innovative State” and current RideScout advisor. “By leveraging available open government data and partnering with private industry, RideScout provides the best of both worlds in one platform, completely changing how people everywhere can make decisions about how they travel.”

RideScout aggregates ground transportation services, including public transit, private options, and social rideshare, allowing people to search and compare options on demand and in real time. Last week the company was selected as a winner of the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Data Innovation Challenge, recognizing how RideScout simplifies the way Americans see and understand transportation.
