Ride sharing isn’t just for San Francisco anymore. Fresh on the heels of securing $10 million in new funding, SideCar is ready to start its expansion into new markets. In an email sent to the SideCar community this morning, the company announced plans to enter Seattle within the next several weeks.
Seattle seems like a smart bet for ride sharing: It’s a city where the majority of residents have cars, but one that is not so spread out or sprawling (like Los Angeles, for instance) that it’s impossible to ensure ride coverage. And, of course, it’s got a tech-savvy populace, as it’s home to or near tech giants like Microsoft and Amazon.
