A new rideshare company, Tryp Rides, is soon to launch their particular service of 100% fare, tips and wait chargers for drivers in LA and Orange county. Drivers will no longer have as much as 30% taken by companies such as has been occurring with Uber and Lyft. The actual purpose for drivers to switch is they will have to work less hours to earn more income.
The business wants to launch the service within the the following month and it is targeting the opening for new drivers in LA and Orange counties since there is a dense population of both riders and drivers.
The services are also unique for riders in this they receive money to talk about the app with some other friends, colleagues and family. Every time someone they share the app with uses the app to hail Tryp ride share, they earn $.40. This can produce a viral sharing frenzy to obtain people on the app, important to attracting the drivers. Tryp has communicated along with us they plan to launch sometime “within another two weeks” in Orange County and La in California. However, they are heavily recruiting drivers in places like Atlanta, New Orleans, and any area of the country they are able to get a hold of.
We made a decision to attend one of these brilliant presentations and record it for your notes. I quickly found a web link that connected me to among the 4 daily Zoom video conferences that Tryp gives to eager rideshare drivers seeking for more information. The presentation itself lasts about an hour and a half and it is much like the type of MLM presentation you will see from Vector Marketing (Cutco knives) or Herbalife, albeit modified to capitalize on the wonders of the modern internet.
What’s more, the presentation focuses heavily on recruiting other drivers. There is hardly any mention of any rideshare-related details. Because the Rideshare Professor points out, since this writing there is absolutely no brick niljss mortar HQ, no offices, no downloadable apps, nor any evidence of licenses.

Rideshare Businesses are Tough – We’ve interviewed CEOs of rideshare companies like Ride Austin and studied new entrants like Juno and something common theme is that the rideshare business is very tough and very expensive. Juno only gained market share since they were funded with huge amounts of money and could actually subsidize rides – but at the time of July 31, 2018 they were doing around 33,000 trips per day, in comparison to Uber’s 453,000 trips per day. So despite all of that effort, they were completely covered with Uber and also Lyft in just one city.
Tryp’s emergence should prove that it’s easy to get drivers to join up having a company but getting passengers is the place where the real companies separate themselves from the others. There’s reasons why most drivers prefer driving for Lyft over Uber yet they still do most of their rides with Uber – it’s because Uber is the place where the passengers are and therefore the cash is.
How Come This Appeal To Numerous Rideshare Drivers? It’s no secret that many rideshare drivers are unhappy with the way they happen to be treated in the gig-economy. It’s easy to victimize that sentiment by giving a fast solution that generally seems to offer drivers a path to solving all of their problems. This is the reason it’s no coincidence that Tryp is providing to provide drivers everything they’ve ever wanted with few information on how.
Prime Leads: We have been already “entrepreneurs” who have taken a leap of faith and demonstrated a willingness to spend our own money in something. We now have taken the first risk to even start driving for Uber and some of us are even comfortable being independent contractors. We even have experience referring individuals to drive for Uber to get a bonus.
