What to know about Taipei’s YouBike

 

Ridesharing is fast become a preferred means of transportation for many. It is cheaper, more convenient and an innovative way of commuting without owning the vehicle. The rideshare industry is growing with many new entrants daily. Pioneer rideshare companies like Uber and Lyft remain at the forefront and start-up companies in the industry are modelling their businesses after them.

Now, various vehicles are being introduced into rideshare. People do not only have to travel with cars; other vehicles like bikes, scooters, trucks and even tuk-tuks are being introduced into rideshare. In a bid to promote cleaner environments and reduce greenhouse gas emissions from transportation systems, cities are partnering with rideshare start-ups to introduce smarter transport solutions. In some cases, cities are going it on their own and introducing public ridesharing schemes to reduce the number of vehicles on the road.

In this post, we will shed some light on Taipei’s public bikeshare system called YouBike (Ubike). YouBike

 

More About YouBike

 

YouBike is a Taipei based public bicycle sharing service. The service is offered by the city’s Department of Transportation. Taipei is collaborating with local bicycle manufacturer, Giant Bicycles to provide this service in over 6 cities in Taiwan. The service was launched in 2009 and now boasts over 22 million rentals annually with over 200 rental stations.

 

Fare

To rent a bike, it costs NT$5 for the first 30 minutes then NT$10 for every 30 minutes within the first 4 hours, NT$20 for every 30 minutes between 4-8 hours and NT$40 for every 30 minutes after 8 hours.

 

To rent a YouBike

To download the app, visit Play store or the App store. You can rent either as a Member or as a single user. As a member, you will require an Easycard electronic card and a Taipei mobile phone number to register. As a single renter, you will require your credit card and will only be able to rent from a kiosk at a bike station. Please note that YouBike will pre-authorise NT$2,000 on your card which will be cancelled when you return the bike with no incidents.

 

To Use

Inspect the bike before renting it. Once you are satisfied with the state of the bike, place your card on the sensing zone of the bike. Once the green light flashes, makes a beep sound and says “Take”, retrieve the bike from the rack immediately and start riding.

 

To Return

Find an unoccupied parking slot, insert bike lock plate into the dock to lock. Wait for the indicator lights to ask you to place your card on the sensor, then place your Easycard to make payments. Once the fees are taken, the bike has been returned.

 

If you happen to visit Taiwan, be sure to try out a YouBike.

Uber and Cargo Partnership to Feed You On The Go

 

Despite the setbacks Uber has experienced over the years, the company continues to introduce innovative ways of providing exceptional service. In June 2017, Uber launched the 180 days of change to improve driver/partner experience. Now, Uber is partnering with Cargo to help drivers make more money by selling confectioneries and other items during rides.

Cargo is a start-up company that targets rideshare drivers by turning their vehicles into a unique version of a convenience store. This Uber and Cargo partnership will see drivers in San Francisco and Los Angeles pick up Cargo boxes from Uber Greenlight hubs. These Greenlight hubs are Uber’s driver support locations around the city. Uber and Cargo Partnership

 

How does the Uber and Cargo Partnership work?

These Cargo boxes are filled with snacks like protein bars, gums and others. Other tech accessories like chargers and ear phones can be found in these boxes. These boxes are placed in the center of the vehicle’s console, visible to passengers. Cargo gives these items plus samples to Uber drivers for free and the drivers earn attractive commissions on each purchase made by passengers.

Right now, riders can only pay for items via the Cargo app. To buy an item, identify what item interests you and scan the QR code on Cargo’s mobile site. Once the item is duly paid for, the Uber driver will give the item to the buyer.

“Through partnerships with major brands like Kellogg’s, Starbucks and Mars Wrigley Confectionery”, Cargo is able to offer these items for free to drivers, Uber stated in a press release.

 

What it means for Uber drivers

To take advantage of this Uber and Cargo partnership, interested Uber drivers must have a rating of 4.75 at least and also be very active on the platform. Cargo is offering the following incentives to drivers:

  • $1 per order (even on free samples)
  • 25% commission on retail sales
  • Free product shipments
  • Referral bonuses
  • Tipping option available and payable to drivers
  • Drivers are paid twice every month

 

What we think

As an Uber driver, having supplementary income is always a welcome idea. Now drivers do not have to rely solely on ride fares; they can earn more money while riding by becoming expert salesmen. The awesome part is that you don’t have to go looking for customers as they are already riding in your vehicle. Hopefully this program spreads to other cities so that eligible drivers can earn more on the go.

All About Bridj Rideshare Service

 

Rideshare services are becoming the preferred way to travel. With an influx of new entrants, the rideshare industry is offering services that aim to simplify traveling and also provide drivers with diversified means of earning. Commuting in a busy city can be a drag and leave riders and drivers stressed out but with rideshare, it can be a convenient and comfortable experience.

Among the many players in rideshare is Sydney based Bridj; a company birthed to provide transport services in areas that are not adequately serviced by public transportation.

 

More About Bridj bridj

In 2014, Bridj originally launched in Boston Massachusetts to cater to areas that were under-serviced by public transport. The service later expanded to other cities like Kansas and Washington D.C by 2016. In 2017, the service was acquired by an Australian company called, Transit systems. Now, Bridj has recommenced services in Sydney, providing efficient bus services to registered passengers.

 

How does Bridj work?

Bridj is designed to serve communities by providing “pop-up” bus services. The company prides itself on using “real time” traffic data and suggestions from passengers to ensure buses take the quickest routes to destinations. The buses only stop at locations designated by passengers in the bus.

 

How to book a ride with Bridj

To begin, follow the quick steps below:

  • Download the Bridg app from google play or apple store and register. Make sure you have your credit card details handy to set up your payment options.
  • Enter your location and destination then confirm your booking. The app sends you a boarding pass in-app and a confirmation via email. You will be given details of your bus and an itinerary.
  • Bridj will also assign a safe pick-up location not far from your location where you can safely hop on board the bus.
  • Track your Bridj in real time. Now you can see your bus as it approaches in real time in-app. This will help you know when to leave your location and begin the walk to your pick-up spot.
  • To board the bus, all you need to do is show your Bridj travel pass to the driver and you can begin your trip.

 

Conclusion

It’s hard to miss the bright orange buses as they traverse the streets transporting passengers to their destinations. The goal is to provide affordable and convenient transport solutions to riders all over the world. We hope to see Bridj extend its services outside of Australia in the nearest future.

More About Uber EV Champions initiative

 

It’s no longer news that Uber is changing the way it did business previously. With a change of management came a new business strategy that is “focused on organic growth—growth that comes from building the best products, services and technology in the world, and re-building our brand into the mobility brand that riders, cities and drivers want to support and partner with.” Uber’s CEO made this statement when he announced Uber was selling its South-East operations to fierce rival, Grab.

Now, the rideshare behemoth has announced a pilot program designed to encourage the use of electrical vehicles. The Uber EV Champions initiative has launched in over six cities in the U.S namely San Francisco, San Diego, Sacramento, Los Angeles, Seattle, Austin and Montreal Canada. In a blog post announcing the pilot, Uber’s lead on sustainability and environmental impact Adam Gromis reinforced the company’s commitment to facilitating “reliable transportation for everyone, everywhere and making our cities more efficient and less reliant on personal car ownership”. Uber EV

 

More About Uber EV Champions initiative

This program was first piloted in Pittsburg and Portland and its success prompted pilots in other cities. The Uber EV Champions initiative will reward Uber drivers in different ways when they switch to electric cars and offer rides in these cars. As a driver, you stand to be rewarded either in cash or via other incentives as an EV driver.

The initiative wants to deliver at least 5 million EV rides in 2019 through Uber drivers/partners. Uber will be partnering with leading electric vehicle (EV) adoption experts like Association des véhicules électriques du Québec, Canada, Electric Mobility Canada, Plug-in America (PIA) and others.

 

Uber Drivers/Partners Adoption of Electrical Vehicles

According to Uber, many Uber drivers have expressed interest in offering rides with EVs but are worried that the limitations of driving EVs will affect their earnings. EVs have to be charged during the day at some point. Also, some EVs can’t do the miles that fuel-powered vehicles can do and identifying charging points across the city may affect valuable work time.

To assuage these concerns, Uber identified proposed the following solutions in-app:

  • Access to EV education and resources: Driver/partners will be given up to date information on all resources, incentives, discounts, and programs they can use to their advantage in their cities.

 

  • In-app features built for EV drivers: Uber drivers will receive in-app support that will notify them when they need to charge their cars. The long trip notification feature will be of great help to EV drivers.

 

  • Advocacy for shared-use EV drivers: Using EVs for shared rides will be a great way to spread the news for the widespread adoption of EVs.

 

Conclusion

Customers who match with Uber EV drivers will be notified that they will be riding with an EV. This move will help sensitize customers about the need for a greener environment. To make it easier for drivers to charge their cars on the go, Uber will be partnering with public utilities companies like Portland General Electric to create charging networks for drivers. We look forward to the worldwide adoption of EVs in the nearest future.

All About UberEATS Kenya, Africa

 

In our previous posts, we have discussed how Uber moved from just providing ride requests to offering food delivery services. This foray into the gig industry provides Uber drivers with the opportunity to earn more while already on the road. UberEATS is also open to non-Uber drivers. The service started up in several areas in the U.S including San Francisco, Washington, L.A, Seattle, Chicago, New York, and Atlanta. The service has since spread all the over the country and even outside the U.S to other continents like UberEATS in Tokyo, SA, London and now UberEATS Kenya.

 

UberEATS Kenya, Africa

 

Alon Lits- General Manager of Uber in Sub-Saharan Africa shared the goals behind the company’s expansion in Africa. He revealed that Uber is not only committed to providing alternative means of transport for Africans but also empowering willing drivers. It is equally important to note that unemployment is a big problem in most African countries.

In September 2016, UberEATS, launched in Johannesburg South-Africa. The service has since spread to Capetown, Bedfordview and Jozi CBD, Pretoria in South Africa. UberEATS South Africa users get to request their favorite meals from local restaurants that have partnered with the food delivery service.

Now, Uber has finally launched UberEATS Kenya. Kenya is the 2nd African country where Uber is operating and the 4th city in Africa. Just like in South Africa, users in Kenya can request meals from UberEATS’ restaurant partners. The meal will be delivered immediately or at a requested time. Users will also select in-app whether they want the meal delivered to a particular location or if they will meet the driver at the car.

To find the over 100 participating restaurants in the UberEATS app, navigate to the tab that says “popular near you” and select your preferred restaurant.  Users will be charged a Sh150 delivery fee.

 

Deliver for UberEATS Kenya

See below the requirements for delivering with UberEATS Kenya.

 

For existing Uber drivers

If you are already an Uber driver or partner, visit the accounts section of the Uber driver app and accept the delivery terms. This will allow you start accepting delivery requests for UberEATS.

For new drivers

According to UberEATS Kenya, see below the requirements for delivering with the service:

  • Be at least 18 years old
  • Any make or model motorbike
  • Valid Driver’s license
  • Valid National ID
  • Vehicle Registration (Log Book) or “Permission to Use” document
  • Third Party / Comprehensive Insurance must be valid

After submitting the required documents, you will have to go through a screening before you can start driving.

 

Conclusion

Uber has spread to other cities like London and Tokyo. The ride-share company initiated a gradual rollout across Japan—a country where its main ride-hailing business is barred. Uber’s inability to keep up with local laws mandating that Uber drivers have taxi licenses prompted a ban on Uber’s services in Tokyo. It is great to see how the UberEATS service is empowering willing drivers and also providing existing drivers with new means of earning while on the go.

What To Know About Curb Rideshare

 

Driving, especially in busy cities can take a toll as you have to deal with traffic and impatient drivers. Rideshare services are becoming the preferred way to travel. The rideshare industry is growing with an influx of new entrants offering services that aim to simplify traveling and also provide drivers with diversified means of earning. One major aspect of ridesharing is its impact on the lives of people. Rideshare is fostering the spirit of entrepreneurship and also improving quality of living.

Now, the rideshare model is being channeled into the local taxi industry to help people request for local taxis via an app. Curb rideshare, a mobile app connects users directly to thousands of taxis in over 60 cities in the U.S including New York, Chicago, and Miami. Previously known as Taxi Magic, Curb is an on-demand service that allows you hail existing licensed traditional taxi via the Curb app. Users can also hail professional car hire services via the Curb app.  Taxi fleet owners are supplied with data detailing the whereabouts of their fleet and how many trips their taxis have undertaken. Curb Rideshare

This is a welcome development as local taxi drivers believe that rideshare services like Uber enjoy unfair advantages in various markets. Services like Uber and Lyft do not go through the regulations that local taxis undergo. Also, rideshare services are mobile app based allowing for easy hailing and convenience.

 

How Does Curb Rideshare work?

According to the Curb website, “local partners (taxi companies and private for hire cars) set the fares, so prices will vary depending on location. Curb does add a $2 fee to each ride for using their app.” Users will have to download the app to request local taxis. If you hail cabs physically, you will have to download the app inside the cab and input the code on the backseat screen of the taxi to pay for the ride electronically. Users can pay for rides using either cash or credit cards. Just like Uber, users can also book a ride in advance. However, Curb implements a “no surge pricing policy”.

Founded in 2007, the Curb app boasts over 50,000 taxis with 90 fleets and millions of users all over America.

 

Different Curb Rideshare Services

Professional Car Hire services

Standard

This service offers rides in a standard car that can seat up to 4 people. Riders should expect to be picked up in vehicles like W Passat, Nissan Teena, Toyota Camry or a Honda Accord

 

6 Passenger Van

This is a great for group travel to convey a party 6 people. Riders should expect to be picked up in vehicles like a Buick GL8.

 

Premium

This is a luxury option that offers rides in high-end sedans like an Audi A6L, BMW 5-series, or a Mercedes-benz E class. Premium fares are slightly higher than other services.

 

Economic

This is the cheapest option and only available in few cities

 

Local Taxis

Users can request local yellow taxis in their city via the Curb app.

Curb Share

This allows you share rides with other people. It is just like the Uberpool service.

 

Conclusion

The goal is to provide affordable and convenient transport solutions to riders all over the world. With the influx of new rideshare services, riders enjoy the merits of fair competition in the market place; lower fares and many options to choose from. Curb  is providing local yellow taxis a fair chance in the transport industry. Now, they can be hailed in-app as well as physically.

All You Need To Know About Summon Rideshare

 

Uber is facing stiff competition from numerous rideshare start-ups hoping to become the next Uber. Uber disrupted the transportation industry bringing with it a more convenient way to ride that is both affordable and seamless to use. The Uber business model for operating a rideshare business has been copied by many other budding companies. The model seems to work as evidenced by the company’s growth over the years. Uber offers both on-demand and scheduled ride services to Uber users.

Now, a  service called Summon rideshare is offering scheduled rides using personal cars or local taxis to its passengers. Summon Rideshare

 

What Is Summon Rideshare?

Like most TNCs (Transportation Network Company), Summon allows users request scheduled rides online or via their mobile devices. To use Summon, you have to download the app on your smart phone and register or register online via the company website. Previously named Instant cab, the company was founded in 2012 by Aarjav Trivedi after he missed an international flight while waiting for reliable transportation to take him to the airport. With headquarters in San Francisco, California, U.S, the company also operates in Oakland, Berkeley, Emeryville, Redwood City, Foster City and San Mateo.

 

How to use Summon Rideshare

 

For Riders

It’s quite simple. On your mobile phone, download the app and register. You will be asked for your details and registration is instant. Once approved, sign-in and request either a private ride or a local taxi. With a flat fore of $12.50 for 20 minutes, fares are in no danger of surging. The company has a policy of no surge pricing.

You can cancel your requested ride for free up to 30 minutes before pick-up. You can also use Summon for your airport pick-ups and drop-offs.

 

For Drivers

Personal drivers

You stand the chance of earning up to $35p/h. You also get a no show payment (when a rider cancels) of $5 for making an attempt. To sign up as a Summon personal driver, visit this page and follow the instructions. You will be asked for some personal details like your phone number and driver license details. Once it’s completed, you will be contacted for a follow-up session and training.

 

For Taxi Drivers

The process is almost the same and you will be asked to submit your taxi permit number and driver license number. You will still need to undergo some training before you can use the service. Drivers are paid via bank deposits every 24 hours.

 

Conclusion

Just like most rideshare start-ups, it is apparent that Summon is not seeking to engage in fierce rivalry with rideshare giant, Uber. The market is big enough for everyone and one company can’t service everyone. Also, the entrant of new players into the industry is great for all players. Riders get to enjoy fair rates induced by competition; while healthy rivalry is great for service providers as it keeps them on their toes.

All About Uber Health

 

Uber is on a path to revolutionize transportation worldwide. As a pioneer in rideshare, the company has endured its fair of challenges and obstacles and is now on the mend.

Now, Uber is launching a new product that is focused on the health sector called Uber Health.

 

What is Uber Health

According to Uber, “Uber Health is a HIPAA-compliant technology solution for healthcare organizations that leverages the ride hailing power of the Uber platform. The web-based dashboard allows hospitals and other healthcare professionals to request, manage, and pay for rides for others, at scale.” In simpler terms, Uber Health is Uber tailored for medical institutions. From a dashboard, medical practitioners like Hospitals, rehab centers, clinics and others can schedule and request rides for their clients and patients. uber health

 

Why Uber Health?

Uber is focused on changing the face of transportation in every sector. Statistics have shown that about 3.6 million Americans miss their doctor’s appointments due to transportation concerns and other health related factors. By partnering with organizations that provide healthcare, patients can be picked up from their homes for scheduled doctor’s appointments. The Uber Health API is designed to integrate with the organization’s existing products.

 

How Will It Work?

There is no service fee for signing up to use the service and riders do not need to have an Uber Health account. In easy steps, see how healthcare organizations can sign up to use Uber Health:

  • Create an Uber Health account via the Self-Service portal
  • Provide a valid email address and a password
  • Enter Company name
  • Fill out your payment profile.

Conclusion

Uber Health is a cost effective way of transporting patients. The Uber Health dashboard helps pool all your logs in one place thereby making it easy to coordinate and schedule trips. Company reps can monitor trip details, see trip status and so much more. The costs of rides are based on standard Uber rates at the time and the Health care provider is presented with a monthly bill.

All About Arro Rideshare

 

It is without doubt that Uber is a giant in rideshare. The company provides a plethora of services tailored to suit different budgets and styles. In some cities where Uber launched, the service has met with opposition from local taxi drivers who feel that the ridesharing service enjoys unfair advantages in various markets. Uber apparently did this by introducing dirt cheap rates in these cities to the chagrin of local taxi operators. Arro

This development has met with different forms of protests. In France for example, local taxi drivers took to the streets in an anti-uber protest that quickly escalated into guerrilla warfare. Local taxi drivers in America as well have protested the unfair advantage Uber has over them as Uber drivers don’t have to pay license fees to operate and rides could be requested right from a mobile phone.

 

All About Arro Rideshare

Arro, a ride hailing app is partnering with CMT technologies to give local taxi drivers a fair chance at competing with Uber. Creative Mobile Technologies is a technology company that created the technology and media systems you find in some local taxis in America. Local taxi drivers who have the CMT technology installed in their cabs can be hailed by Arro users.

 

What This Means

Local yellow taxis will now be hailed on the streets as well as via the Arro app. Arro is an online based rideshare service that allows its users hail local taxis on-demand. The company operates in over 5 cities in the U.S including New York, Chicago, Houston, Boston and San Francisco. This is great for those who prefer to ride exclusively with yellow cabs. Now, you can request a cab right from the comfort of your home.

 

Not exactly a novel development

In a bid to assuage irate local taxi drivers in select cities, Uber also designed an API that allows its users request local yellow taxis. Arro has argued that its direct integration with local taxis makes it more convenient for both riders and drivers to request and accept rides respectively.

 

Features of Arro Rideshare

  1. No surge pricing
  2. Easy payments with in-app payment systems
  3. Local taxi drivers are said to be safer than other drivers due to licensing
  4. Hail taxis offline and online and still pay with app
  5. Faster arrival times

 

What we think

Arro still has a long way to go if it has its sights on toppling Uber in the cities it operates in. Not all local taxis are equipped with CMT technology and cabs that don’t have this technology installed can’t be hailed by Arro users. What this means is that there will be less local taxis available to Arro users and slower arrival times for drivers. It is been reported that Arro is in talks to partner with technology giant, Verifone in New York City. If this partnership is successful, there will be more local taxis operating on the Arro platform and then maybe Arro will stand a chance.
