    In this episode, I’m excited to share my interview with Shamus Hayes of RideShare Carz. I think RideShare Carz is very innovative in the fleet owner space, and it’s interesting to see a behind-the-scenes look of how it all works. Shamus himself actually gave 4000 rides, too, to understand the driver experience! We’ll talk about the driver experience, types of vehicles that are most popular, and who RideShare Carz is good for.
