Black-owned ride-sharing app ‘Moovn’ is Uber’s latest competition
Currently, Gabriel’s app operates in six U.S. cities: Washington, DC, Chicago, IL, Boston, MA, Portland, OR, Seattle, WA, San Francisco, CA, New York, NY. Moovn also operates in Dar-Es-Salaam, Tanzania.
Gabriel taught himself to code, and by his own admission, his initial launch app was “amateurish at best,” but he has since transformed the platform and has high hopes for it.
“It wasn’t until we received investor backing that I was able to hire and collaborate with a team of seasoned developers to transform the platform into what we have today,” he explained.
He then added, “The market, for the most part, is currently being dominated by Uber and Lyft with these companies enjoying the benefits of having first mover advantage with the transportation technology space. However, we’re confident that the global market remains sizable enough for all of us to fit in and play.”
Moovn differs from its competitors in that it offers customers a chance to book their ride well in advance. It also offers the chance to move products and services rather than just offering rides.
