Families are getting ready for trick-or-treating Thursday night, and safety experts remind us there are a number of hidden dangers that could affect your children. One of the biggest dangers is on the road.
Alto is the trendiest of rideshare companies. You’ve probablyheard about the Dallas-based appthat lets you choose everything from the car’s playlist to whether you want to make small talk with the driver, but have you seen it around lately? Alto has been partnering with local artists to create “art cars” with eye-catching designs and millennial-friendly bonuses (like a selfie station in the backseat). This weekend, it unveils its latest creation by muralist Mariel Pohlman at Flea Style.
Alto was created by a pair of friends from Dallas, Will Coleman and Alex Halbardier.
“Alto is a service company enabled by elegant technology,” Coleman told ParkCitiesPeople. “Technology features like panic buttons admit a problem exists, but don’t solve the root cause. Instead, we’re focused on redefining the model entirely to create a different experience for passengers and drivers.”
Many of us have embraced ride-sharing as a preferred mode of transportation, but we can also probably agree there’s room for improvement in the experience. Although you would define the ride-sharing companies as disruptors, it’s now time for disruption to happen to them.
Will Coleman saw an opportunity to improve this experience when he found that his wife wasn’t willing to participate in the ride-sharing world because of safety concerns. Plus he saw that ride-sharing wasn’t actually helping with the over congestion of roads, it was actually making it worse.
