San Diego-based app 2pointb selects Dallas for launch

San Diego-based startup 2pointb has chosen Dallas as the first launch city for its transportation app.

“We’re thrilled to launch in Dallas and show our customers how great app-based transportation can be when done right,” states Josh Komenda, principal and CEO of 2pointb, in a recent public release. “We have fantastic, eager partners in Dallas that support us and our vision.”

By partnering with local companies, 2pointb connects app users to their pool of drivers.

“App-based transportation networks have revolutionized the industry, but many passengers and drivers are now asking who’s taking responsibility to ensure their ride is safe,” says Komenda.

2pointb drivers are screened for safety and reliability, with local regulators vetting drivers to ensure the 2pointb standards for safety. Each driver in the 2pointb system is also required to carry commercial liability insurance.

“2pointb will recapture lost trust by proving ourselves as an ethical company that believes in straightforward pricing, ease of use, reliability, and safety. By implementing responsible practices that benefit both the rider and the driver, we guarantee a safe and enjoyable trip for our riders, superior to other options out there,” said Komenda.

Komenda also co-founded GoFastCab, an automated taxicab booking system for customers in the United States. He sold the business to Arizona-based Total Transit in 2013 , a major transportation company that funded 2pointb in a separate investment.
