D.C.’s own ridesharing service, Split, just keeps expanding.
Today the company announced it’ll be serving six new neighborhoods: American University, Tenleytown, Van Ness, Cleveland Park, Massachusetts Heights and Cathedral Heights. According to a statement, this leap represents a 20 percent expansion of coverage in the District.
Expanded ridership supports Split’s narrative that they’re building an affordable and reliable (and yet still sustainable) alternative to public transportation. “We’re essentially creating a personal means of public transportation — with just a few other riders,” Split CEO Ario Keshani said in a statement.
Split also recently outgrew its space at 1776, and has “graduated” on to new offices at WeWork in Dupont.
