TRANSIT: RideScout transportation aggregator app expanding service area

App exploring city-wide transit options now available in San Francisco, Washington, D.C. and Austin, Texas

April 17, 2014

San Francisco became the third city piloting the RideScout transportation aggregator app last week, joining Washington, D.C., and Austin, Texas.

RideScout collects data on all public transportation options in a given city and lets users view them all on one screen. This includes the typical bus and train options as well as local ride-sharing services. Users can search for a ride based on a variety of filters, including speed and price.

For those transporting themselves, RideScout provides walking or driving directions to their destination, complete with nearby parking options courtesy of the web-based Parking Panda service.

RideScout is still working to sign transportation services in the respective cities to give users the most complete view possible.
