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 like has been occurring with Uber and Lyft. The underlying motive for drivers to switch is that they will have to work less hours to earn more money.
The business wants to launch this particular service in the the following month and is also targeting the opening for first time drivers in LA and Orange counties as there is a dense population of both riders and drivers.
The services are also unique for riders in this they receive money to share the app with some 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 generate a viral sharing frenzy to get people on the app, important to attracting the drivers. Tryp has communicated with us that they intend to launch sometime “within the following two weeks” in Orange County and Los Angeles in California. However, they have been heavily recruiting drivers in places like Atlanta, New Orleans, and any area of the country they are able to get a hold of.
We chose to attend one of these presentations and record it for the 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 to find out more. The presentation itself lasts about one hour and a half and is nearly the same as the sort of MLM presentation you will see from Vector Marketing (Cutco knives) or Herbalife, albeit modified to capitalize on the wonders from 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 indicates, at the time of this writing there is no brick niljss mortar HQ, no offices, no downloadable apps, nor any proof 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 is that the rideshare company is very tough and extremely expensive. Juno only gained market share since they were funded with huge amounts of money and were able to subsidize rides – but as of July 31, 2018 they were doing around 33,000 trips daily, in comparison to Uber’s 453,000 trips daily. So despite all that effort, these people were completely covered with Uber and even Lyft in only one city.
Tryp’s emergence should prove that it’s simple to get drivers to join up having a company but getting passengers is where 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 where the passengers are and thus the cash is.
How Come This Appeal To A Lot Of Rideshare Drivers? It’s no secret that lots of rideshare drivers are unhappy with the way they have already been treated inside the gig-economy. It’s easy to prey on that sentiment by giving a quick solution that appears to offer drivers a way to solving their problems. This is the reason it’s no coincidence that Tryp offers to offer drivers everything they’ve ever wanted with few particulars on how.
Prime Leads: Our company is already “entrepreneurs” that have taken a leap of faith and demonstrated a willingness to invest our very own cash in something. We have taken the first risk to even start driving for Uber and many of us are even comfortable being independent contractors. We even have experience referring individuals to drive for Uber for any bonus.
