Kingstown, St. Vincent (ONE NEWS SVG) –Route, a new transportation service in St. Vincent and the Grenadines is currently recruiting drivers.
In a release, the organization said it is “seeking drivers who have their own vehicles and are interested in making an extra income and working flexible hours”.
Three Vincentians have created the new Uber-style transportation mobile application called Route in order to promote a better transportation system in the country.
The team of three young Vincentian entrepreneurs is comprised of Terry Clarke (Affiliate of ACCA), Richard Codougan (student, Bsc. Nautical Science/ Maritime Operations) and, Lawrence Bascombe (Bsc. Major in Marketing, Minor in Management).
In an article sent to One News SVG on Thursday, the team said Route is a platform that connects riders in any given area to drivers that are ready to take you from one place to another.
The app brings to St. Vincent and the Grenadines a modern, first-world approach to transportation and can almost be likened to Uber.
With Route, the entity said “Anyone who has the Rider’s app and wants a ride can place a request in the app, which will then notify the nearest drivers. The first driver to accept your request will arrive at your location to pick you up and drop you off at your desired destination. You will be notified about the transportation fare before you are able to book a ride”.
Route can be reached via email at firstname.lastname@example.org
