Recently, Ronda Harris offers a much more environmentally friendly option for people to move from point A to point B.
“It’s an enhanced golf cart,” Harris said. “It’s all electricity.”
It’s a new, uniquely designed mode of transportation that instantly attracts attention and intrigues customers.
She and her wife, Murjani Harris, have launched Gest Carts Denver, an eco-friendly ride-sharing service designed to carry passengers anywhere in downtown within a two-mile radius.
“For example, it’s very crowded here to go to a basketball game. Sometimes you have to park far away,” Harris said.
Harris says it reduces the burden on guests to walk the last one or two miles.
Riding services such as Uber and Lyft allow customers to download the GestCart app. But unlike others, Gest earns 100% of its profits through advertising.
This ride is completely free for you.
Fully electric 5-seater carts have been launched in major cities across the country, including Chicago, Cincinnati and Detroit, and will soon be available in Charlotte and Las Vegas.
Harris says the overall reaction was positive, but not without doubt. She says the only backlash so far comes from older, more traditional driving companies.
“The taxi driver says we’re taking all the money, but we don’t have to charge everyone,” Harris said.
She says she plans to add up to 10 Gest carts on the day and night shifts and bring more work.
She says it’s time for a safer rideshare for both passengers and the environment.
“The air quality here is really bad, so what about now? Would you like to move people and create or start a ride service that doesn’t pollute the air?”
