Two brothers are giving people who live in Ocean Beach another ride share option besides Uber and Lyft.

"It's actually something we started on Halloween," Jack McClay said.

Jack and his brother Brett dressed up like Mario and Luigi on Halloween, from the popular video game Mario Kart. They used their golf cart to give people rides all night, and decided to try to turn it into a full-time business.

“Basically it’s a donation shuttle here in Ocean Beach,” McClay said.

Their golf cart seats up to six people at a time, and the brothers give people rides every day of the week.

"It's called The OB Shuttle," Jack said. “The idea is kind of you know ‘Oh how’d you get there? Oh we took the shuttle.’”

The brothers let passengers sign their golf cart with permanent marker to give it character.

“We almost thought of it as kind of like an Ocean Beach yearbook kind of theme,” McClay said.
“Really no better way to get to know the people in the community. Cutting down on drinking and driving and all the positive things that it can be.”
