Can a zero-emissions rideshare startup help reimagine transportation in Madison?

I just spent two weeks in Switzerland and France (groan, I know), and one of the highlights of that trip was the interconnected public and private transportation options, or mode share. I could get anywhere I wanted using my smartphone. I could walk out my door and hop on a bus to the train station. I could wave my phone and locate an Uber bicycle near me. I could use my apps to find and pay for a cab, scooter or the subway, sometimes all in the same trip.

It wasn’t that there weren’t any cars. There were plenty. It’s that cars weren’t the automatic first choice. It was almost … un-American.

Back in Madison — where 62% of commuters drove to work alone in their cars in 2017 — Shree Kalluri was already dreaming of creating a different mode share option. The tech entrepreneur and founder of Forte Research Systems has worried about climate change for years, and he purchased an expensive, all-electric Tesla Model S in 2017.
