ScooterCabs, a local business created by three University of Wisconsin-Madison grads, aims to provide an affordable alternative to taking a taxi home or driving under the influence.
The service was created as an extra option for patrons that drive out to a bar or restaurant and have a few too many drinks. The concept is similar to a taxi, except for one fundamental difference; the taxi is now the patron’s own vehicle. There is no longer a need for patrons to abandon their vehicle at the bar or restaurant to make it home safely.
"With Wisconsin’s high rates of drunk driving, Madison seemed to have a need for this type of service," said owner Justin Sisley, "but even for the majority of people who would make the responsible decision to call a cab, our service provides a much more convenient option for them. No more waiting around for a friend or cab to take you back to your car in the morning."
