Since May, Bandwagon riders have saved 8,170 pounds of CO2 by taxisharing from LaGuardia Airport. And every match saves about 8.5 gallons of fuel.
We’re doing our part behind the scenes also: Bandwagon’s proposal for a citywide taxishare pilot is now in the hands of Mayor de Blasio’s office, the NYC Taxi & Limousine Commission, Manhattan Borough President Gail Brewer, and major stakeholders in the taxi industry. We want to make it easier to share taxis throughout New York City—during rush hour, shift change, from MSG or Central Park during the next papal visit? The possibilities for taxisharing abound.
Meanwhile, Bandwagon users are continuing to draw the attention of the media, who have called the service a valuable addition to the taxi ecosystem, and one that supports licensed drivers. Here’s CNN’s Samuel Burke’s recent visit to LaGuardia, and Fortune Live, where our CEO David Mahfouda and our friend Daniel Ramot of Via discussed behavior change to reduce congestion.
