“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," explained Goodwin. "However, we’re confident that the global market remains sizable enough for all of us to fit in and play.”

Moovn---much like Uber and Lyft---offers users the ability to schedule rides for a later time, and it also aids in moving products and services, at competitve rates.
