CEO Kyle Thomas Offers Commuters Another Travel Option With ‘Catchr’ App!

*(Los Angeles, CA) ? Kyle Thomas, a Los Angeles-based entrepreneur recently entered the technology business with his newest invention — ?Catchr? a state-of-the-art app that allows commuters to request and purchase rides from their smart phone.  Getting to and from the bus stop or train station remains a significant barrier to using public transportation. Even though many commuters are interested in using public transportation, many are discouraged because they still have to spend time and money on using their own car, a taxi, UBER or Lyft to reach their final destination.  Catchr closes the gap by transporting passengers from the train or bus stop to their office or to their home at an affordable cost.

Catchr?s services are targeted to first and last mile users. This usually means commuters who need to get from the train or bus station to their final destination, which is usually home.  Catchr eliminates stress by freeing commuters from having to use their cars and pay for parking. Catchr also transports passengers from train stations to shopping centers, from business parks to bus terminals, or from doorstep to doorstep.

As Kyle Thomas explains to EURThisNthat, ?What I?ve created is a ?liquid? flexible routing system between point A and B.  We want to ease the lives of commuters by offering them a stress-free experience and live up to our slogan ?Always Going Your Way!?

Uber CEO Sent ME This Email: Takes Stand Against Trump’s ‘Immigration Ban’

As a member of his Uber driving team, it’s not rare to receive messages from “Travis” but this one was especially sensitive because it is in response to something…or should I say someone… that has our entire country up in arms right now.

Donald Trump and his “Temporary Immigration Travel Ban.”

As is the case with any entrepreneur, any businessman, such a dramatic stance as Trump’s decision to halt all movement of immigrants coming to this country; and threatening to stop those who reside here but travel back home from returning not only has devastating humanistic effects, but profound effects on business as well.

Many Uber staff members are immigrants — drivers and technicians.

But the email is in direct support of drivers.?So Uber has decided to take a stand and assist those affected by the ban.

No matter what some will call a hidden agenda, (hey, he’s a businessman but does that make him any less human?) I already applaud the gesture.

Here is the email I received from Travis Kalanick. Continue reading
