Jeffrey Chernick is the CEO and co-founder of RideAmigos Corp, created in 2007 in response to a frustrating one hour subway commute from home to work in New York City. Within a week of the company’s launch, Chernick was sharing a $10, 10 minute taxi to work with a neighbor (and co-worker) he did not know prior. RideAmigos Corp is now a national leader of web-based, multi-modal transportation solutions, providing regional commuter networks, multi-modal travel dashboards, certified AQMD commute surveys, trip trackers, and reward systems. The company launched the nation’s first Virtual TMO for Century City in Los Angeles, CA.
Chernick also the Co-Founder of TravAmigos, which has re-invented the traveler’s experience with a one-stop dashboard and dynamic reservation system that connects travelers with matching itineraries via Facebook before and after their journey. Additionally, the platform links travelers with locals, offers Yelp reviews on nearby venues, suggests events and tours, provides weather updates, and more. He is the Deputy Chair of The Emerging Ridesharing Solutions Subcommitee of the Transportation Research Board, as well as a Director at The Venice Love Network in Los Angeles, a non-profit that feeds the homeless on the Venice Boardwalk monthly.
