About Us

SafeRide/WalkSafe is the brainchild of an elite team of innovators, marketers, and developers in the Boston area.

When colleagues described having a frightening experience with a driver while traveling, we asked ourselves if we could create a simple and effective way to help travelers minimize the risks associated with such situations, or, ideally, avoid them altogether. We wanted to harness the power of social networks to create a real-time support system that would travel with them, albeit in a virtual sense, every step of the way until they arrived safely – whether by car or by foot. We are proud to say that our mobile app accomplishes this objective.
