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 as much as 30% taken by companies like has been occurring with Uber and Lyft. The underlying purpose for drivers to switch is they will have to work less hours to earn more money.
The company intends to launch this particular service inside the next month and is also targeting the opening for brand 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 in that they receive money to talk about the app with some other friends, colleagues and family. Each and every 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 get people on the app, important to bringing in the drivers. Tryp has communicated along with us which they want to launch sometime “within the next two weeks” in Orange County and Los Angeles in California. However, they are heavily recruiting drivers in places like Atlanta, New Orleans, as well as any part of the country they are able to obtain.
We made a decision to attend one of these brilliant presentations and record it for our notes. I quickly found a hyperlink that connected me to one of many 4 daily Zoom video conferences that Tryp gives to eager rideshare drivers seeking to find out more. The presentation itself lasts about an hour and a half and is nearly the same as the type of MLM presentation you would 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 very little mention of 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 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 organization is very tough and incredibly expensive. Juno only gained market share simply because they were funded with vast amounts of money and were able to subsidize rides – but since July 31, 2018 these people were doing around 33,000 trips per day, when compared with Uber’s 453,000 trips daily. So despite all of that effort, these were completely covered with Uber as well as Lyft within one city.
Tryp’s emergence should prove that it’s easy to get drivers to join up having a company but getting passengers is where the true companies separate themselves through the others. There’s a reason why most drivers prefer driving for Lyft over Uber yet they still do most of their rides with Uber – it’s because Uber is when the passengers are and so the money is.
How Come This Attract Numerous Rideshare Drivers? It’s no secret that lots of rideshare drivers are unhappy with the way they have been treated within the gig-economy. It’s simple to take advantage of that sentiment by giving a fast solution that generally seems to offer drivers a road to solving their problems. This is why it’s no coincidence that Tryp is offering to provide drivers everything they’ve ever wanted with few particulars on how.
Prime Leads: We have been already “entrepreneurs” that have taken a leap of faith and demonstrated a willingness to spend our very own cash in something. We have now taken the initial risk to even start driving for Uber and many of us are even comfortable being independent contractors. We have even experience referring people to drive for Uber for any bonus.
