What is a rideshare program?

You might have heard about ridesharing, but what exactly is it? What are the benefits? And how can you join in a rideshare program? The key to understanding ridesharing is learning about the program itself and realizing that there is no reason to not be open to the idea.

Ridesharing has been around since the 1940s when people had to carpool in order to ration gasoline to send to the troops fighting the war overseas, but when rationing ended, the numbers of people carpooling fell.
Many people avoid rideshare programs because they stubbornly refuse to give up driving their own cars alone. Millions of solo drivers hit the roads every day adding to the traffic congestion in the nation. All of these cars on the road also increase the levels of carbon dioxide put into the Earth’s atmosphere. Such a rise in this greenhouse gas increases the already rampant pace of global warming. read more

Are All Hybrid Cars The Same?

So you’re in the market for a hybrid car and think all hybrids are the same? Better think again as there are a number of different types of hybrid vehicles available and even more on the way. Buyers need to be informed and realize that hybrid vehicles can be drastically different in terms of both technology and the hit to your checkbook. In the following article I will breakdown the different technologies available and help you determine what is best for you.

Full Hybrids

At this point most people would agree that these are the best types of hybrids currently available. They operate using two separate propulsions systems, the internal combustion engine and the electric motor which can work independently of each other. Under certain driving conditions, typically low speed, the car can operate purely on the electric motor. Full hybrids use regenerative braking which takes energy that would normally be lost and uses it to charge the hybrid battery packs.

Full hybrids usually achieve very good fuel efficiency. At this point full hybrids can be more expensive than the other type hybrids cars, but the price should come down as popularity increases.

An example of a full hybrid is the Toyota Prius. read more

Becoming a Driver For Uber

I am becoming an Uber driver this week. My town, Portland, is one of the last major cities in the US to get Uber and Lyft, thanks to stringent cab laws here. I run a small business with my husband, part time, and am also a part time stay home mom. My daughter is now a teen and my business is pretty stable, so I need something to keep me occupied during my free time.

I have tried affiliate marketing, house flipping and selling on eBay. Those home businesses all were OK but each had problems that left me wanting to try something else. Uber offers the flexibility I want; I can work when I want and as often as I want, as long as I complete one trip per month.

I started blogging about Uber to find out what it was all about first. To do so I read articles and forums to see what was up. There were a lot of people complaining about low pay, especially in cities where the per mile average has gradually declined. Our per mile average is $1.55 as of Sept. 2015, which is about in the middle. We are about in the middle for cost of living here too, so that may be why. read more

Why Work for Uber, Lyft and Breeze

More unconventional ways to make money have cropped up with time. One of the most recent ones is Uber, Lyft and Breeze. These companies provide the everyday driver a chance to make money by picking clients and dropping them at their preferred destinations. They set up a system that allows the driver to log in and pick clients. They also set up a system that allows a client to request a driver. The companies have also set up strategies to ensure that the process is safe and also minimizing incidents that would result from the lack of security. These companies have provided one of the best ways to make money fast and easy with zero experience. Here are some benefits of working with Uber and Lyft.

Extra money in your wallet quickly

The TNCs have made it possible for car owners to make an extra buck fairly quickly. This is a welcomed thought especially with an economy as tight as it is today. Uber drivers are able to make up to $20 a trip. The cost of the trip is measured in miles. Clients that go further will pay more while those that go for short distances pay less.

Work at your own convenience

Drivers do not have to work full time for them to be with the companies. A driver can choose their working hours and login to pick up clients when they are ready.

How Does RideSharing Work?

Ridesharing: How it Works

It wasn’t until recently that ridesharing has become a hit. Uber, Lyft and Breeze have enjoyed an increased number of partners and clients over the years but not without challenges. These companies have made it possible for car owners to operate taxis using their very own cars to make extra money. The drivers sign up with the companies and are given an app that shows them where clients need to be picked up.

The companies then pay out the drivers through the same system. The clients use an app to find available cabs from the companies and get connected to those unoccupied. The plan is not only convenient but easy as well. A driver will choose to work at their convenience. The idea was set up to help car owners make an extra buck while the clients enjoy convenient and cheaper rides. The companies have grown in leaps and bounds which has created some challenges. This is where Rideshare Hotline comes in. We help our drivers get up and running quickly and without hassle.

Ridesharing actually started after most drivers testified that they had difficulty getting work. Rideshare came in to ease the load by providing carpooling services within these units. Carpooling works on the premise of using the same ride to a destination. The fare is shared among the users making it way cheaper than the standard fee.

Users are now able to log into the platforms and feed in their locations and destinations to generate new business on demand or to get rides on demand. The systems have an algorithm that maps out those that have the same need and time and puts them together for this sole purpose. The car users have to be at the pick-up point at the required time with codes given by the TNCs. These codes allow the driver to get payouts from the rideshare companies speeding up the process of payment. Each rideshare company has its own codes. The codes help the TNCs trace the jobs and make the payouts.

This is a short summary on how Ridesharing works between all of the above companies.
