Overair’s mission is to bring people together – enabling access to opportunities that would otherwise be unavailable because of the friction of moving around urban areas.
Be it a job, a sporting event, or a trip to the airport to access longer-range transportation, if we can reduce travel time, we give people freedom to live better lives. And our mission is to provide this freedom in a sustainable and equitable way, at a price point accessible to everyone.
