GoLoco was created to fill what we see as a pressing consumer need -- to share car travel, split costs, and reduce emissions – in a world with few alternatives. How else can you cost-effectively get between locations not served by transit, or expensively served by bus, train, or plane? We also seek to use social networking, electronic payment, the internet, and mobile media tools to reduce the hassle and increase the benefits of ride-sharing.
Our team has a long history of working together in the realm of transportation, internet, wireless technology, and consumer services.
