SEATTLE, Dec. 14, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Migo, the search app for on-demand rides, has launched its free new service in Washington, DC this month, after successful launches in Seattle and Portland in Q3. Migo is the first app available in the U.S. that allows users to search, compare and hail multiple types of personal transportation, such as Lyft, Car2Go, Yellow Cab, Limebike and more, without having to jump from one app to another. The Migo app displays real-time data for price estimates and wait/walk time - and makes it possible to search, hail and book a ride, all from within the Migo app. In-app payment is available for many partners today and will be expanded in the future.
Migo launched first in Seattle and Portland on the iPhone, and is expanding quickly to additional markets, like DC, and to Android. In addition to expanding to additional markets the Migo team has been regularly adding or testing new services, like bikeshare and public transit.
Migo has seen significant growth in its initial markets since their launch this summer. Since launch, the Migo app has been used over 20,000 times. In this same period downloads are up over 1000% and hails generated for Migo partners are up over 1500%.
"Our customers are telling us they've been waiting for a service like Migo. They're tired of jumping from one app to another to discover their best transportation option," said Jeff Warren, founder and CEO of Migo. "And with the congestion and traffic challenges in Washington, DC, we're thrilled to be able to offer the growing population of the greater DC area a smart solution that allows them to first discover and then easily choose the best (cheapest, fastest, coolest) way to get from A to B."
Getting started with Migo is as simple as downloading the app from the Apple App Store and hailing your ride. Services requiring an account will either ask you to link to an existing account or Migo can help you create one 'on the fly.'
Migo is your free search app for on demand rides, where you can search, compare and hail, without having to jump from app to app. Whether you want to get driven by a pro, just find the closest or cheapest way to go, or drive yourself and your friends, Migo can help you find, book and enjoy getting from A to B. Migo shows all the rideshare, carshare, taxi, bikeshare and specialty options out there, with more cities and services being added every day. We're not a new transportation company – we're the search app that helps you find, book and enjoy your ride.
