Uber, Lyft, and other ridesharing companies have shown how important apps are to the transportation industry. Today, we’re looking at a few other apps to help you take your rideshare business to the next level. Here’s the video version (which we also posted to our Youtube channel) but read on if you’d like to learn more.
Harry here. Navigation is one of the biggest reasons for a low rating, and today we’ve got RSG contributor Jon Knope to talk about two of the most popular options and see how they stack up against each other. Let us know which one you prefer in the comments section below.
For thousands of years, philosophers have pondered this age-old question: what’s the best smartphone navigation app? 😉
As rideshare drivers, the question is especially important since we rely on GPS to help us make money every time we log on. Much like the rideshare business itself, there are two main players in this game: Google Maps and Waze. We’re going to ignore Uber’s in-app mapping system since, as any savvy driver can tell you, it’s severely lacking when compared to these two third party options.
Google actually purchased Waze in 2013 for $1.1 billion, but the apps themselves are very different. Today we’ve got a video summary and a head to head comparison so you can take your pick.
