Migo, the search engine for on-demand rides, has launched its free new service in Seattle and Portland after a three month beta test period with over 200 Seattle and Portland-based users.
Migo is the first app available in the U.S. that allows users to search, compare and hail multiple types of personal transportation, without having to jump from one app to another. It displays real-time data for price estimates and wait/walk time and has in-app payment available.
The new service is launching first in Seattle and Portland on the iPhone, and is expanding quickly to additional markets and to Android.
Seattle and Portland are key launch cities for the app in part because of their role in the White House Smart Cities Initiative, which was launched in 2015 to help deliver smart city solutions, including eco-friendly transportation options that best leverage the cities’ resources and infrastructure.
“Migo was designed to help residents first discover and then easily choose their best ride option”
“Seattle and Portland are hotbeds for testing new transportation services and models, like car share, ride share, carpooling, bikes and taxi services,” said Jeff Warren, founder and CEO of Migo. “Migo was designed to help residents first discover and then easily choose their best ride option – whether that means closest, cheapest, most environmentally friendly or simply the coolest option to get from place to place and with the rapidly expanding populations of both Seattle and Portland, we see Migo as a key partner to help keep the cities moving.”
