ome stories begin with a chance discovery, but not this one. It was actually quite the opposite. There was much intention – and equal parts frustration.
An eminent domain attorney named Keenya T. Justice drove the mountains of North Carolina serving the residents of its beautiful cities and small towns. She became increasingly bemused by “being held hostage behind the steering wheel” and, to add insult to injury, forced to work more when she arrived back at home due to the lack of productivity of her day-long drives. Sometimes she had employees and interns drive her, but that only left important office work unattended.
She found a viable solution in the most unlikely of places: her child’s bus stop. She joined forces with a fellow parent – who also happened to be a programmer – and, a few months later, Intercity was born. Today, they all work within a larger team to drive productivity for all professionals traveling to nearby cities for work. And they have no plans of stopping until every travel hour for their riders is being used to its highest degree. The journey continues.
