Rideshare in 2014 was characterized by insane growth and rapid change. Some of that change was good, some of that change was bad, but the industry is still alive and kicking. Sometimes I think we forget that rideshare is still in its infancy. We want issues like insurance and regulation to magically disappear but that won’t happen overnight. You have to give these things some time.
I released an article last week that featured 43 industry experts giving their outlook on rideshare in 2015, but today I wanted to give you guys my take. This podcast will cover everything from what went down in 2014 to what companies we should be on the lookout for in 2015. Since I talk to so many drivers and people in the know on a daily basis, sometimes I feel like I have a crystal ball into the future. I can see companies on the rise and driver support systems gaining momentum. And although it might seem like things are getting worse for drivers due to lower fares, as you’ll hear in this podcast, there is a lot of potential and opportunity for drivers going forward in 2015. You just have to be patient 🙂
