“We founded Gotcha on a commitment to partnership and collaboration with universities and cities to help solve fundamental transportation challenges through sustainable mobility options. While we aim to offer these solutions in as many places as possible, we can’t do it all. We need to focus our resources on cities where we can make a more effective and lasting impact. We loved being able to provide our Nashville riders with a fun mode of transportation and very grateful to them and our hardworking staff for our time here.”
