Only 2 months in and still love the extra income. I drive a Kia Forte which is really good on gas. I know the back streets of Atlanta so I prefer the shorter trips vs long trips. My main reason I drive is to finally jump off the ledge with my virtual reality business plan garuanteed to change the world in every industry including UBER. Anybody else working on a start up?

Having been an employee for the past 19 years, I'm looking to start up my independent contractor career.

Both business and pleasure. I've done it PT since 2016, recently laid off from a 15 year long job so now semi-FT so the savings doesn't drain while I work on a retail project. Also for the tax implications. I enjoy it. I drive primarily burbs in the days and evenings. Not sure I could deal with the night crowd.

I was a ex driver back in 2012 -2015, but since then i been developing my own rideshare app to help my fellow drivers. Been developing since i was 18 now 28, my goal is to start a rideshare company something exclusive and small, nothing on uber's scale because i simply don't care about them or lyft i don't want to be saturated thats a bad thing to me, i love the idea of ownership. i'll work my way to getting a small investment like $5M nothing to big start in one or two cities. I know NY is capping drivers, so i can limit my driver's to 1,000 per city for now. The plan is to become monthly subscription based driver's will keep 100% commission and they only have to pay a fee every month. also drivers will be getting ad revenue if they sign up and use our tablets in their vehicle (but that is a choice not mandatory). I understand the insurance situation and all that comes with it i been study this for a whole year, Using 2009 vehicles and up. I'm only trying to help the ones that are tired of being taken advantage of by uber. Im simply using my skills of development to help drivers if this is something you been waiting for then this could be for u. I really have nothing to lose at all, this is a passion for me, is uber a concern for me? no, because i have a whole different model. If this actually goes will it could possibly shift the rideshare industry into the way it was suppose to be. Drivers have complained for years now, You want full control as a driver it will happen soon. The app and legal documents are in the works by first quarter of 2019.

I commend your determination and passion. How does your model differ from a Cab company other than the vehicle?

We follow the same procedure as the rest of them, we don't own the vehicles, we will be paying for the insurance, riders can only get a ride through the app (No Street Hails), trade dress signs almost every single thing that approves us to be a TNC regulated company. Lets be honest taxi company will never go back to the way it was many years ago, only thing they can do is get with the program and create a app, find there on niche and some are. We aren't going to just be a rideshare company, but delivery as well not with food just business to business, home delivery accepting cargo vans, mini vans and more. 80% is already done we just waiting on legal documents. We want to start adding the right people to the team asap. I figure this may be the only way to help drivers get more money out of the rideshare industry ...at one point JUNO was around, but gave promises and then sold out, they were doing the whole 10% commission thing and GETT bought them out for $200M in NY and that was just with Rideshare.

What we will have
.RIDESHARE (2019)
.DELIVERY (2020)
.RIDESHARE IN-CAR ADS REVENUE (NOT MANDATORY) (2019)

There's an issue with the rideshare industry correct?
Uber saw a need for change in the taxi industry right?
Uber did something good and have gotten greedy since then right?
Drivers want change right? to be paid better? to have actual fool control?
so explain to me a model like monthly subscription fee/ drivers keep 100% commission and fare tips wont work?
because i can give u 1000 drivers reasons why in DC that are signed up waiting for a launch and beta test. re-inventing uber yes? if uber did it this way from the jump dont you think drivers would have been alot more appreciative and also dont feel taken advantage of. You guys want something but then when it comes away you think because 70B will stop anything if you aren't innovating in any company it will be a matter of time before someone come out with something better. Ive explained idc about how many drivers they have because drivers use more the one platform anyway the same drivers that use uber also uses lyft am i right? i dont expect them to just stick with us that be stupid why limit the amount of money u can make on many platforms. otherwise your just complacent and missing out on other sources of income. uber gonna get rid of u drivers in about 5-10 years with self driving cars then what you gonna do? ME and other companies like PULL UP N GO" will be changing the way the rideshare industry is. Taxi company thought the same thing you did and look what happen

PULL UP N GO is another subscription based company as well they will eventually get acquired but for now they staying in their own lane. nobody cares about what uber is doing if more companies start doing it this way think of where drivers will flock to and force uber and lyft to change business models. Would be surprise if uber see us getting 5,000 drivers in one city and want to buy us out just to shut us down which is obviously a good sign that things are goin well. like i said i dont care to be a billion company like them 3 - 5 cities is fine for us. You'll hear about it soon.

And you are absolutely right 100% , their only real profit is ubereats, but as of now Postmates has 60% of the food delivery market, their are 2 companies that will be a better version of uber and lyft, both will be a monthly subscriptions rideshare opportunity for drivers...100% commission fare & tips. Drivers will possibly do away with uber and lyft if they choose not to do 100% commission as well..

They had their 8 year run with taking commission. Taxi drivers and Reg drivers hate it; after that IPO uber and lyft will have to re-think the business models. They will either get with the program and do the same or simply buy the companies out just to shut them down... Again this is what happen to JUNO.
