MEMPHIS, Tenn. (localmemphis.com) – It was definitely not a Harley, not a “Born to be Wild” machine. If anything, it has a born to be mild attitude to it.
MyCityRides is a workforce development asset meant to give riders affordable independence. MyCityRides is the first program of it's kind in the country and it started in Memphis. Currently there are nearly 120 Flyers in the program and those scooters have traveled nearly 140,000 miles saving riders nearly $85,000 compared to owning and operating a car.
When Megan Klein joined the team at My City Rides, an innovative transit company, she didn’t know what to expect. The nonprofit was in its infancy, and the concept was the first of its kind in Memphis, allowing people the opportunity to lease-to-own scooters to get to and from work. Although a new concept to Megan, she relied on her 15+ years of experience in communications to jump right in and become a major asset to the growing company.
