Uber will be adding public transportation to its app so that riders who need to get places can use the multiple options available to them. These options will include both public and private transport options.

Cities that are interested in partnering with Uber will be given solutions tailored to their transit system’s needs to help improve it. Uber will then integrate the city’s public transportation into its platform.

This way, riders can get access to other transport options where there are no viable public transportation service available.

Also, riders will be shown the cheapest transport option available to them even if it’s not Uber once they log into the app.

Hence, whether it is via rail, the bus, scooters, e-bikes, or even cars, riders have all these options available to them with Uber transit.

Currently, Uber transit is available in Denver, Colorado, the service will be extending to other cities in the future.

Rideshare has become a popular mode of transportation all over the world. To ensure seamless transportation, bikes, trucks, and even rickshaws are being used to simplify commute, decongest roads and reduce carbon footprints.

Carpooling is also a great way of decongesting roads. Many cities are enforcing HOV (High Occupancy Vehicles) rules where roads have dedicated lanes for these vehicles. In a bid to provide smart carpooling solutions, Rideshare Network debuted its services.

The company currently operates in North America and is looking to expand its services using Nodes.

What are Nodes?

 

According to Rideshare Network, “a node is a separate Rideshare site for your area”. Cities and towns that require ridesharing in their area will have a separate site created for them; but it is named after the city or region and has the region in the URL e.g  (https://yourtown.ride-share.org).

 

To Request Rides

 

  • Visit the website
  • Enter your location and destination
  • Indicate if you will be a rider or driver
  • Register on the Rideshare Network using your Facebook account or email.

  • A chat application is available for users to communicate
  • Drivers and riders arrange trip costs and gas money before trip begins
  • Users are asked to rate their experience

Rideshare Network does not perform checks on users, so riders and drivers need to be very careful and observe a few safety checks before agreeing to a ride.

  • Ensure you meet your ride companion in a public space before getting into the car
  • Read ride reviews
  • Enquire about the condition of the car
  • Ask for references
  • Ensure that the driver is approved to ride on the platform
  • Be alert

Try Zum Rideshare for Kids

 

The Uber business model for operating a ridesharing business has been copied by many other budding companies. The model seems to work as evidenced by the company’s growth over the years. As much as ridesharing is convenient and affordable, rideshare companies seem to have a problem with guaranteeing safety.

The rideshare model has been adopted in various forms to cater for not just adults alone but even kids as well. It is important to prioritize safety when dealing with kids and this is where companies like Zum rideshare come into play. Rideshare giants like Lyft and Uber have faced multiple lawsuits stemming from driver misconducts. They are also not allowed to transport unaccompanied children.

Creating a rideshare platform that caters to kids is a huge undertaking; however Zum rideshare is willing to take up the mantle. Zum Rideshare

 

More About Zum Rideshare

 

The company was founded in November, 2014 by Ritu Narayan and Vivek Garg. It caters to children and teenagers between the ages of 5 – 17 years. Striving to become the go to “Uber for kids”, parents and caregivers who work full time jobs can now have their kids transported to school without worrying about running late for work.

Schools are not left out as Zum rideshare also partners with local schools to transport kids to and fro daily.

 

How Does Zum Rideshare Stand Out

 

To compete in an already saturated industry, it is important to bring something unique to the table. For now, there aren’t a lot of rideshare companies competing in the “Uber for kids” niche but it’s still important to stand out.

Not a lot separates Zum from the likes of Kango and Hopskipdrive. They all boast thorough driver vetting and safety. However, Zum riders can see all their driver details up to 12 hours before a scheduled ride.

 

How Zum Works For Riders

 

To begin, follow the steps below:

  • Download the app on iOS or Android 
  • Create an account
  • Create a member profile for your kid
  • Enter payment method
  • Then choose to ride now or schedule for later

 

How Zum Works For Drivers

 

Zum drivers are known as Zumers. To drive for Zum, you have to meet some requirements and be willing to be subjected to background checks.

  • Be at least 21 years old
  • Have experience working with children
  • Own a 2008 or newer four-door vehicle in great condition
  • Have a clean driving record & pass background check
  • TrustLine approval

 

You will also be required to undergo the following:

  • Fingerprinting
  • Live scan

Bounce Rideshare To Take On Uber

 

Every so often, we hear of companies making an entrance into the rideshare industry in the quest to take on Uber. As a pioneer in ridesharing, Uber has enjoyed enormous success in almost every market it has launched in. The Uber business model for operating a ridesharing business has been copied by many other budding companies. The model seems to work as evidenced by the company’s growth over the years. Now, Bounce Rideshare has its sights set on taking on Uber.

 

More About Bounce Rideshare

Founded by Mike Potter, Bounce was created in 2016 and currently operates in San Diego alone but with hopes of expanding soon. An interesting fact to note about Bounce Rideshare is that Mike Potter had in time past successfully litigated civil and employee rights.

 

What Drivers should know about Bounce

Although it is a rideshare company like Uber, Bounce is doing things differently when it comes to its drivers. Bounce will be compensating drivers a little differently from other traditional rideshare companies. The company will be taking into account how much time drivers spend on the road, how well they promote the company and for how long they have been driving for the company.

Bounce is offering the following incentives to drivers: bounce rideshare

  • 75% of what the passenger pays minus the booking fee, with a minimum fee of $4
  • Royalties for drivers and riders referred directly and indirectly (This is more detailed and mind-blowing and will be explained to drivers upon signup)
  • Royalties that come in even when you are no longer an active bounce driver
  • 1000 stock options when they sign up with a 25-month vesting schedule

The list above is by no means exhaustive and frankly a big reason to sign up to drive with Bounce. Many have compared the compensation package to a pyramid scheme. We will let you be the judge of that.

Although Bounce doesn’t destination filter like Uber, it lets drivers know how many miles the rider will be going.

 

What Riders should Know

 

To use the Bounce Rideshare service:

  • Download the app on Play store or the App store
  • Register and enter payment details
  • Request a ride

Riders have the option of adding drivers to their list of “favorite drivers”. This does not guarantee that they will always be matched with favorite drivers but Bounce seems committed to making this happen.

Fares

  • Booking fee – $2.24
  • Per Mile – $1.15
  • Per minute – $.15
