A Nap Mobile will be cruising around DFW this weekend, the TEX Rail project reaches a milestone, and a North Richland Hills-based calendar startup is overhauling its app.
Wouldn’t it be nice to get some shut-eye on-the-go? If only, a 15-minute power nap infusing some much-needed energy to continue your genius creativity. Starting Friday your wish is granted (and ours too), when sleep startup Casper’s Nap Mobile will be making its rounds throughout the Dallas area. The truck has four pods on it, which include air conditioning, pillows, and blankets. For 15 minutes, you can enjoy a sweet siesta during a reserved time. Visit Casper’s website to find out where the Nap Mobile will be this weekend.
A project bringing more connectivity to the area reached a milestone earlier this week. The 27-mile commuter rail line planned to span from downtown Fort Worth to Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport’s Terminal B received a “letter of no prejudice” from the Federal Transit Administration. This gives the Fort Worth Transportation Authority a green light to begin construction on the TEX Rail line in July, which puts it on track for completion by late 2018. Find out more about the new rail from the Star-Telegram.
Mobile calendar company, Allcal, has started developing new enhancements since Dallas Startup Week.The North Richland Hills-based startup’s application left some users frustrated during the April event series when it wasn’t functioning properly. Recognizing the problem, the company challenged developers at Dallas Startup Week to revamp the app’s user experience. As a result, the startup has brought on two new team members, and their improvements to the application are expected to launch in August. DCEO has details about the new developments.
