Company Summary

Dollaride is a new micro-transit service providing transportation in communities underserved by public transit. 120K New Yorkers living in transit deserts use "dollar vans"every day. However, 2M+ residents need this service given their proximity to the MTA.
So Dollaride aims to expand the dollar van network by adding a digital platform (mobile & web), making the private network of drivers accessible in all neighborhoods with weak public transit.
