In the wake of the deadly terrorist attack on the offices of the French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo, Mediacart is offering free rides to those who wish to use its app to pay for a taxi or for a ride home.
In an article published in The Globe and Mail, the company says the app allows people to pay by the minute and can offer discounts if people feel comfortable using it.
“We have seen the value of Mediacs in providing transportation for people who may not otherwise have access to such transportation,” said Daniela Lebron, a spokeswoman for the company.
The app is currently available in the United States, the U.K. and Canada, and is available in several European countries.
The company, which has more than 60,000 members in more than 30 countries, was founded by former Canadian astronaut and astronaut Scott Kelly in 2006 and has since expanded to other countries.
It says that the app is available to users in all 50 states and in the U., U.S. Territories and Puerto Rico.
The Globe article states that the service is currently being rolled out to several cities across the country, including Boston, Minneapolis, Chicago, Denver, Nashville, Phoenix, St. Louis, Houston and San Francisco.
The newspaper said the company plans to continue providing rides to people in more cities as it becomes available.
In the article, Medisign said it had reached out to the families of those killed in the attack and was working to get the families’ names and contact information for the public.
It said that if anyone has more information on their loved one, they can contact the company directly.
The Times Herald-Tribune in St. Paul, Minnesota, has also reported on the new Mediaconnect service.
