About Gary Bauer:
iCARS was conceived, founded and launched by Gary Bauer, a 26-year transportation industry veteran and owner of Bauer’s Intelligent Transportation. Bauer’s IT is the largest privately-held provider of passenger transportation in the San Francisco Bay Area.
Gary Bauer’s vision for this independent start-up company centered on the limousine industry’s dire need to compete “head-on” with Uber and Lyft in terms of on-demand ride hailing technology. The key to success will be differentiating iCARS' unique benefits – enabling third party bookings, in-app future reservations, comprehensive expense reporting and integration, leveraging only high-end vehicles and professional, thoroughly-screened chauffeurs to corporate and private clients.
iCARS has been in development for over four years, at a seed cost of over $5 million. iCARS soft-launched in San Francisco in 2015, and an aggressive roll-out is planned for major U.S. cities throughout 2016. iCARS is adding professional drivers and operators every day as word spreads of this exciting new alternative to Uber and Lyft, especially for corporate or business travel.
