GoCatch launches GoCar to dethrone Uber in Australia
e27 | PUBLISHED: 22 FEB 2016
Last year marked a year of tribulation for the ride-sharing giant Uber. In addition to being beseeched by angry taxi drivers worldwide, it faced strikes by its own drivers, both of which are showing no signs of simmering and reaching resolution.
Let’s also not forget that leading Asia-based ridesharing startups Lyft, Ola, Didi Chuxing, and Grab have formed an Avengers-style alliance to stave off Uber’s monopoly in the market. It would be no surprise if its Co-founders Travis Kalanick and Garrett Camp start ageing faster than a US president.
Now, to add increase to their burden, Australia-based taxi-booking startup GoCatch has risen to meet Uber on the streets of Sydney — with the launch of its on-demand ride-sharing service GoCar.
Ned Moorfield, CEO of GoCatch, lays out its plans for GoCatch and GoCar, in an email correspondence with e27.
