Luxury transportation service miRide rolls into Broward, Palm Beach

By Nancy Dahlberg

On-demand transportation options are revving up: miRide, a luxury service that launched in Miami-Dade County last summer, announced this week it is driving its chauffeured car service into Broward and Palm Beach counties.

Customers can use miRide’s app on iPhone and Android to summons the fixed-price black car service, which also can be scheduled in advance through the app. The cost is slightly more than a taxi, and unlike Uber, there is no surge pricing, said JC Carey, miRide’s co-founder and managing partner.

Also coming as part of the miRide platform is miKids, a transportation service for teens and pre-teens, tailored to simplify the lives of working parents. “MiKids offers safety and convenience while providing parents peace of mind,” Carey said.
