EZ-RYDR is a subscription-based ride share service that puts safety first with thoroughly-vetted drivers and other features. This start up company launched in Oxford, Miss. in October, 2018. It’s now operating in Starkville, Miss., Ruston, and will be in Natchitoches as soon as a fleet of drivers can be established. This could be as soon as a few days, according to CEO and co-founder Kyle Staude.
Kyle started EZ_RYDR with three other co-founders: CTO Jeff Tindall, Marketing Director Austen Cain, and VP Brad Beard. Also on board are advisors Jay Worthy and Tom Pecora.
Staude said they plan to offer their services within Natchitoches City limits initially, but plan on expanding throughout the Parish. Of course, rides will cost a bit more to the outer areas of the Parish, but isn’t it worth it to avoid a DUI?
“We’re a car service that cares,” said Staude. “Our focus is on the underserved and often times overlooked rural college towns. We want to bring a sense of community to what we do.”
