Veyo Brings Ride-Hailing Tech To Health Care
The 335-employee transportation broker thinks it can shake up the non-emergency medical transportation business by bringing modern, app-based technology to the industry. Veyo was spun out of Phoenix-area transportation and taxi operator Total Transit. Veyo also aims to lure more independent drivers — akin to Uber — to supplement the commercial medical transportation fleets that it hires to provide rides. (Freeman, 7/13)
