With all of the driver pay issues surrounding Uber and Lyft, many drivers are wondering why there hasn’t been a competent challenger to Uber and Lyft. Recently, drivers reached out to us about a new company called Nomad Rides, which seeks to disrupt Uber and Lyft and take over as the truly driver-friendly company. We had RSG contributor Sergio Avedian take a look at Nomad, what it promises drivers, and the likelihood it will succeed below.
Nomad Rides is a new driver-centered rideshare company, whose intent is seemingly to overthrow Uber and Lyft by appealing to drivers, with a much more generous pay system than Uber/Lyft currently have. With driver pay and incentives getting cut what seems like every few months, there certainly is a lot of discontent to go around. I’m surprised a challenger to Uber and Lyft hasn’t arrived sooner! Is Nomad Rides the David that will take on the Goliath’s of the rideshare industry?
