Another transportation app adds Milwaukee

Quick on the heels of ridesharing apps Uber and Lyft, transportation aggregator app RideScout has entered the Milwaukee market.


The RideScout app consolidates information about transportation options in the area. In Milwaukee, it will track Milwaukee County Transit System buses, carsharing service Zipcar, taxi availability, Parking Panda reserved parking spot options and Amtrak trains.
RideScout included Milwaukee in a rollout to 69 cities announced on Tuesday.

“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 chief executive officer 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 last week won the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Data Innovation Challenge.
