Otto (a RideOTG company)

Founded by Arman Uygur ’17SEAS/DSI, Otto is an eco-friendly ridesharing app that pledges to have zero net green gas contribution on the environment while providing more affordable, safer, and highly customizable routes for the ride. We are planning to achieve this by a) incentivizing (in terms of higher matches/rides and lower fees) electric/hybrid car drivers and users (cheaper overall fares) b) planting adequate number of trees to clean the CO2 contribution from gasoline cars c) partnering up with other environmental organizations to strengthen green initiatives d) providing multiple route options (for safety, view, price or speed).
