carGO is Bright Spot in Cape Area

carGO is such a bright spot in Cape for several reasons. First of all, they are filling an important need in our community. Transportation is a quality of life issue and having a ride-sharing service is a strong improvement. There are many examples of customers from foreign exchange students at Southeast to elderly Cape residents. But perhaps the most compelling use case is a visually impaired couple who have use the service more than a dozen times. This allows them the freedom to quickly run out and grab lunch or do some shopping. Just an incredible story.   

Secondly, they are bringing jobs and extra income. This type of work is known as the “gig economy,” basically a marketplace that utilizes short-term contracts or freelance workers. It’s critical we embrace this new economy as the world moves more in this direction. There are currently more than 60 carGO drivers.

Finally, what’s really exciting to me, is to see viable, scalable businesses STARTING in Cape. carGO isn’t the only example, but it’s a good one. They have over 1,600 customers who have downloaded the app and delivered over 500 rides. They are considering adding additional services in the future and expanding to other similar communities.
