The Zeelo Story

Why did we start Zeelo?

Two friends, Sam and Barney, were frustrated by the way the world moves. We believed transport services needed to be designed around the rider, not the operator.

So we got going. A couple of friends on a mission to reinvent the way people travel. We got together with fellow co-founder Dani to build an algorithm that understood when large groups of underserved people wanted to travel.

Ready to depart

We tested the service by Zeeloing to watch Sam's favourite team. On a cold Saturday afternoon Zeelo was born, transporting 750 like-minded fans to Wembley (Sam's beloved Spurs lost by the way).

Alongside football, we quickly learnt that there was similar demand for event-goers traveling to rugby matches, the races, festivals, and more. But we knew Zeelo could be accessed by more disconnected riders, so we launched a commuting service giving thousands of daily travellers a viable alternative to the car.
