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 longer have just as much as 30% taken by companies like has been occurring with Uber and Lyft. The actual purpose for drivers to switch is that they will have to work less hours to make more money.
The organization plans to launch the service in the the following month and it is targeting the opening for first time drivers in LA and Orange counties since there is a dense population of both riders and drivers.
The service is also unique for riders because they receive money to discuss the app along with other friends, colleagues and family. Each 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 have people on the app, essential to bringing in the drivers. Tryp has communicated along with us that they want to launch sometime “within the next two weeks” in Orange County and L . A . in California. However, they are heavily recruiting drivers in places like Atlanta, New Orleans, and any area of the country they could obtain.
We made a decision to attend one of those presentations and record it for the notes. I quickly found a hyperlink that connected me to among the 4 daily Zoom video conferences that Tryp gives to eager rideshare drivers seeking to find out more. The presentation itself lasts about one hour and a half and is much like the kind of MLM presentation you would probably see from Vector Marketing (Cutco knives) or Herbalife, albeit modified to capitalize on the wonders in the modern internet.
What’s more, the presentation focuses heavily on recruiting other drivers. There is certainly hardly any reference to any rideshare-related details. Because the Rideshare Professor points out, at the time 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 companies like Ride Austin and studied new entrants like Juno then one common theme would be that the rideshare business is very tough and very expensive. Juno only gained market share because they were funded with millions of dollars and had the ability to subsidize rides – but since 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 dominated by Uber as well as Lyft in just one city.
Tryp’s emergence should prove that it’s easy to get drivers to sign up with a company but getting passengers is when the real 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 therefore the amount of money is.
Why Does This Appeal To So Many Rideshare Drivers? It’s no secret that many rideshare drivers are unhappy with the direction they have already been treated within the gig-economy. It’s very easy to victimize that sentiment by offering a fast solution that appears to offer drivers a road to solving their problems. This is why it’s no coincidence that Tryp offers to provide drivers everything they’ve ever wanted with few information on how.
Prime Leads: We are already “entrepreneurs” who have taken a leap of faith and demonstrated a willingness to shell out our own money in something. We have taken the initial risk to even start driving for Uber and some of us are even comfortable being independent contractors. We even have experience referring people to drive for Uber to get a bonus.
