A new rideshare company, Tryp Rides, is soon to launch their unique service of 100% fare, tips and wait chargers for drivers in LA and Orange county. Drivers will no more have as much as 30% taken by companies such as has been occurring with Uber and Lyft. The underlying purpose for drivers to switch is that they will need to work less hours to earn more income.
The organization wants to launch the service inside the the following month and is targeting the opening for new drivers in LA and Orange counties while there is a dense population of both riders and drivers.
The services are also unique for riders because they get paid to discuss the app along with 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 may generate a viral sharing frenzy to obtain people on the app, essential to attracting the drivers. Tryp has communicated with us that they intend to launch sometime “within the next two weeks” in Orange County and La in California. However, they have been heavily recruiting drivers in places like Atlanta, New Orleans, and any part of the country they could 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 one of the 4 daily Zoom video conferences that Tryp gives to eager rideshare drivers seeking to find out more. The presentation itself lasts about an hour along with a half and it is very similar to the kind 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 certainly very little reference to any rideshare-related details. Because the Rideshare Professor highlights, as of this writing there is no brick niljss mortar HQ, no offices, no downloadable apps, nor any evidence of licenses.

Rideshare Companies are Tough – We’ve interviewed CEOs of rideshare businesses like Ride Austin and studied new entrants like Juno and one common theme is that the rideshare organization is very tough and extremely expensive. Juno only gained market share since they were funded with vast amounts of money and were able to subsidize rides – but as of July 31, 2018 these were doing around 33,000 trips daily, when compared with Uber’s 453,000 trips per day. So despite everything that effort, these people were completely covered with Uber and also Lyft in just one city.
Tryp’s emergence should prove that it’s simple to get drivers to sign up with a company but getting passengers is the place where the actual companies separate themselves through the others. There’s reasons why most drivers prefer driving for Lyft over Uber yet they still do almost all of their rides with Uber – it’s because Uber is when the passengers are and so the money is.
Why Does This Interest Numerous Rideshare Drivers? It’s no secret that lots of rideshare drivers are unhappy with the direction they have already been treated inside the gig-economy. It’s very easy to prey on that sentiment by giving a quick solution that generally seems to offer drivers a way to solving all their problems. This is the reason it’s no coincidence that Tryp is offering to provide drivers everything they’ve ever wanted with few particulars on how.
Prime Leads: We are already “entrepreneurs” which have taken a leap of faith and demonstrated a willingness to invest our own funds in something. We have now taken the primary risk to even start driving for Uber and many of us are even comfortable being independent contractors. We have even experience referring men and women to drive for Uber for any bonus.
