UZURV is a Reservation Network Company (RNC) founded in 2015 by two Uber Partners, Matt Donlon and Harold Frans. They witnessed first-hand the need for both a reservation system for on-demand travel and the desire on the part of riders to be able to request specific drivers again and again. They weren’t looking to be another Uber or Lyft. They would develop an app to handle the reservation piece only to fill the gaps in an otherwise successful and effective on-demand system.
A team of bright, experienced tech, business, marketing, and operations professionals were assembled and in just six months the UZURV Beta app was launched in our hometown of Richmond, VA. We quickly expanded testing to ten markets in Virginia and North Carolina. In March 2016 the rider app was released to the Apple and Google Play stores followed close behind by the driver app which was released in April 2016.
