SHARE featured

Hoa Pyles McManus is driven to help people and communities. She began her career of care by assisting patients for over nine years at The James Cancer Hospital. She jumped into the entrepreneurial deep-end when she and her co-founder (and husband) Ryan quit their jobs, sold their house, and moved to Oregon. There they started their microtransit company, which eventually pivoted to become SHARE.

Located in Columbus, SHARE provides door-to-door white-glove service for employers and employees, students, senior citizens, and patients, just to name a few. Listen as Hoa discusses how a young company can redefine transportation for cities with 250,000 to 1 million residents. From reductions in parking and carbon emissions to employee benefits and socialization for seniors, SHARE is a startup that from day one is impacting and improving how people live and work.


SHARE is a microtransit service created for the scheduled and recurring trips that people take most. SHARE partners with employers, schools, businesses, municipalities, and senior living and healthcare facilities to provide a transportation solution backed by proprietary technology. SHARE believes access to transportation means access to opportunities. The startup is working with Columbus to create the blueprint for transportation in Smart Cities.
