Additionally, the company has hired Gabe Klein in the role of Chief Operating Officer. Most recently Klein was Commissioner of the DOT in Chicago under Mayor Rahm Emanuel, and prior to that was Director of the Washington D.C. DOT under Mayor Adrian Fenty, as well as a VP at ZipCar.
Bridj launched beta service this past June and thousands of Bostonians have already taken rides. Both the funding and the addition of Gabe will allow Bridj to expand nationally and beyond, according to the company.
