    The founders tell FOX23 their research shows a need for a shuttle service for commuters and people looking for transportation without having to drive. The company is planning for a soft launch hopefully by the end of the year, with shuttles to and from Oklahoma City for Thunder basketball games.

    FOX23 has a crew talking with the founders and commuters about the new business. We'll have a full story on FOX23 News at Noon and Five, and stay with FOX23.com for updates.
