Kateroke: Sing along to your favourite tunes with Kater this summer

SUMMER in Vancouver is about to heat up with Kateroke.

On June 20, Kater, Vancouver’s made-in-B.C. ride-hailing app, will be launching two special Kateroke cars with a fully interactive karaoke feature.

Vancouverites can belt out their favourite summer hits while Kater gets them to their next destination. Wherever their summer plans take them, from home to the beach, the office or running errands, summer in Vancouver is about to hit all those high notes.

Riders ready to put their vocal chords to the test will be able to order a Kateroke car as an option alongside regular cars directly through the Kater app. Once their Kateroke ride arrives minutes later, they’ll find an iPad and microphone ready to go, along with in-car disco lighting to set the mood.

The set-up is intuitive and easy for riders to use so that drivers can focus on getting passengers to their destination safely. There is no additional cost to ride in a Kateroke car.

Corrie Larson, Director of Communications and Marketing at Kater, says: “Not only is Kater offering a here and now option in mobility for Vancouverites, we also want to make it as fun and enjoyable as possible to get around town! We want to go above and beyond for our customers, and what better way to get in the mood for a night out than singing your favourites with your best friends? We’ve had a Kateroke car on the road as a trial for a couple of weeks now and have had such great feedback that we decided to launch two Kateroke cars for the summer.”

Kateroke is the first of a series of new initiatives and options Kater will be launching over the summer.
