Patient Transportation Startup Roundtrip Gets a New Partnership Amid Year of Growth

Old City’s Roundtrip, makers of an on-demand transportation platform for the healthcare space, will partner with Madison, Wisconsin-based healthcare data platform Redox to improve the startup’s patient experience, the Philly company said Wednesday.

The deal comes less than a year after the company announced a $5.1 million Series A in May 2019, with plans to double its then-headcount of 26, split between Philadelphia and Richmond.

Now, about eight months later, the headcount is up to 36 employees (with plans to hire at least a few more) and the company has a roster of 48 clients, a company spokesperson said. The company also reports a 372% growth in ride volume between 2018 and 2019.
