Having commuted in Seattle traffic for more than 13 years, I knew there had to be a better way for people to get from one point to another.
Seattle, WA (PRWEB) April 29, 2010
Zebigo.com is a new, national, on-demand ride sharing service for drivers and riders to find each other via http://zebigo.com, its web and mobile apps for commuting to and from work, to go to sports, concerts, and arts and entertainment events, or for any other one-way trips where you want to travel on your schedule.
“Having commuted in Seattle traffic for more than 13 years, I knew there had to be a better way for people to get from one point to another,” states Mark Russell, Founder + CEO of Zebigo.com.
“Seeing thousands of single-occupancy vehicles in daily bumper to bumper traffic, I started questioning how to make it work better. The idea that drivers could share their extra seats with riders, use the HOV lanes, make some money, lower their environmental impact, reduce our dependence on foreign oil, and build a stronger sense of community all inspired the concepts behind Zebigo.com.”
With its roots in the Northwest, Zebigo.com is gathering additional thoughts from Washington residents about their commuting and travel habits. The first 500 people to take the survey will receive a $5 credit at Amazon.com or a $5 gift card for use at Starbucks.
To take this 15 minute survey, Washington state residents can visit: http://zebigo.com/survey
Starting in late May, Zebigo will launch along the 405 and 520 highways in Washington state, through Auburn, Kent, Renton, Bellevue, and Redmond, then launching in Seattle this summer.

Russell received his MS in Aeronautics and Astronautics from Stanford University and his BS in Aeronautical Engineering from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. He is the founder of Zebigo.com, which develops green, intelligent micro-logistic technologies and business opportunities. Russell’s previous experience includes Boeing Commercial Space Company, Intel Corporation and Crew Capsule Element Lead Engineer/Manager at Blue Origin, the aerospace company owned by Amazon.com’s Chairman and CEO Jeff Bezos.
Zebigo.com’s development team includes engineering professionals with experience from NASA, Boeing, Oregon State University, Blue Origin, and Garmin.
With Zebigo.com’s offices in Seattle and Spokane, the company will launch the service in Seattle, with other cities launching in North America through 2010-2011.
