Glyde, New Scooter Share Service, Launches In Downtown Detroit

October 18 13:25 2018

Navigating Downtown Detroit just got a little easier – and a lot more eco-friendly, thanks to a fledgling start-up that’s set its sights on making Detroit the Silicon Valley of the east. Glyde, Detroit’s first company based scooter share service, has now opened for business, and is poised to have Detroiters reconsider their favorite means of transportation through giving them the option of adding a touch of adventure to their everyday commuting.

Founded and run by 24-year-old CEO Mike Hacham, Glyde is a local Detroit tech company that combines the latest technological know-how with a fierce commitment to giving back to the local community. More specifically, the company pledges to help improve the quality of life of all those residing in the areas wherein it operates by contributing to various projects that include, but are not limited to, boosting local schools’ infrastructure and fixing pedestrian rite of ways. Furthermore, Glyde has vowed to prioritize hiring veterans in acknowledgement of their valiant service to their country.

“We are excited to be a local Detroit tech company startup entering the last mile scooter share arena,” said Mr. Hacham. “By choosing a scooter, instead of their prized cars, Detroiters will now have the opportunity to experience Downtown from another point of view, and relish in the freedom of motion and ease of navigation that can only be provided by riding around on two wheels. Glyde is paving the way for the future of Detroit mobility, and we can’t wait for Detroiters to join our movement and share our vision for a friendlier, cleaner and traffic congestion-free city.”

The company is currently in talks with the city of Detroit to expand its scooter sharing network to several areas in and surrounding Dowtown.

Glyde will soon launch its eponymous app, which will both complement and facilitate its scooter sharing program, on the iOS and Android platforms.

The Glyde app’s release date will be announced in future communications with the press. No further information is available at this time.
