Hytch™ Carpooling App Launches in Clarksville

NASHVILLE, TN – September 19, 2016 – Hytch LLC, the Nashville-based carpooling app, announces its Clarksville launch today at Montgomery County Mayor Jim Durrett’s office in a move to connect the northern Tennessee county’s commuters for true ridesharing opportunities.

The announcement comes on the heels of its $100,000 TDOT Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality (CMAQ) grant announcement last week in Williamson County. TDOT awarded the grant to the Nashville start-up as part of its initiative to reduce traffic congestion and air pollution in Tennessee. The Hytch smartphone app is the first of its kind to be available in the Clarksville area.

Attached is Montgomery County Mayor Durrett's announcement for the Hytch partnership.

The media and public are invited to attend.
