RideFair Co-Op App taking back the streets for rideshare drivers
Ninja Software is pleased to launch the Kickstarter campaign for RideFair, an open-access toolkit that gives drivers the technology they need to build local rideshare services that can directly compete with providers such as Uber and Lyft.
what drivers can charge and how they make in return – without being called employees. As
the world begins to slowly reopen from the global pandemic, now is the perfect opportunity to
challenge the current rideshare model and give drivers a fighting chance.
Using RideFair's set of software tools, local drivers can band together and share in the
ownership of the companies they drive for. These companies will connect into RideFair's
management system that will deliver jobs to drivers for prices they can set themselves,
receiving 90-95% of the fare paid by riders. RideFair's fees will be used to build and rollout
future improvements for app users and drivers.
Ninja Software's CEO, Alex Dunmow, developed the idea after speaking with drivers during
his daily ride: "Since developing the RideFair concept 18 months ago, I have driver's groups
getting in contact with us at least once every two days – that tells me that there is a strong
demand for change. We all know the current platforms are not playing fair with their drivers.
The time to change things is now."
The Kickstarter campaign runs through to July 5th, 2021, with the funding being 'all or none.
"I encourage drivers and supporters to contribute a small amount to the cause, whatever
they can, and help make this a viable option for all drivers," says Dunmow.
