Gett, the ride-hailing startup that has been carving out a niche for itself in a crowded and competitive market for on-demand transportation by focusing on enterprise accounts and connecting people with rides in some 1,500 cities leveraging a number of third-party fleets, is adding another partner today as it continues to double down on its […]
Illustration by Alex Castro / The Verge Lyft launched a program that will let health care organizations send patients prepaid passes that they can use for rides to doctor’s appointments. “We’ve automated an important piece of health access that allows patients to be self-sufficient and in control, while allowing our partners to focus on the services they provide, rather than on administrative processes,” said Megan Callahan, vice president of Lyft Healthcare, in a statement. The program, called Lyft Pass for Healthcare, lets health care organizations or social services agencies create a budget and set approved pickup and drop-off locations. They can share the pass with patients, who can apply it to their ride. Non-emergency medical transportation is estimated to be a $3... Continue reading…
Since ride-hailing companies like Uber and Bolt disrupted the transportation industry, one of the thorns on their sides has been traffic congestion and pollution. Research has shown that trips from ride-hailing cars have more emissions than those from personal cars. To reduce their carbon footprint and solve the latter problem, both companies have floated the […]
Illustration by Alex Castro / The Verge Uber saw record gross bookings in March 2021, according to a filing posted Monday with the Securities and Exchange Commission. The increase may signal the beginning of a comeback for the ride-hailing business, which suffered mightily in 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic. Uber’s mobility segment, which includes its ride-hailing business, was up 9 percent between February and March 2021, with an annualized run rate of $30 billion. Uber’s food delivery segment UberEats, which helped the company stave off even bigger losses in 2020, doubled its annual run rate from March of last year, coming in at $52 billion. “As vaccination rates increase in the United States, we are observing that consumer demand for Mobility is recovering faster than...

Earlier this week, Uber was supposedly thinking about preventing its drivers from seeing ride request destinations and prices in an attempt to stop them from only selecting the most lucrative trips. Now, the ride-hailing company is “throwing money” at its US drivers in an attempt to address the fact that there aren’t enough of them to service demand. Today, Uber announced that it’s investing $250 million into a driver stimulus package to allegedly boost driver earnings. The extra money will serve to incentivize new and existing drivers to accept more rides. As the coronavirus pandemic hit, Uber use fell through… This story continues at The Next WebOr just read more coverage about: Uber
Riders are flooding back to ride-hailing apps. Drivers, not so much.
Photo by Eduardo MunozAlvarez/VIEWpress Uber and Lyft have a driver shortage problem. With the number of US-based drivers for both apps down around 40 percent, the two companies are pledging to spend hundreds of millions of dollars to lure people back into the driver seat. Uber announced Wednesday that it was launching a $250 million “stimulus” for drivers in the hopes of speeding their return to the platform. “In 2020, many drivers stopped driving because they couldn’t count on getting enough trips to make it worth their time,” Dennis Cinelli, Uber’s vice president for mobility in the US and Canada, wrote in a blog post. “In 2021, there are more riders requesting trips than there are drivers available to give them—making it a great time to be a driver.” “a great time to be...

According to the San Francisco Chronicle, Uber is thinking about stopping its drivers from being able to see the destinations and potential prices of ride requests. Yet again, it shows the ride-hailing Übermensch doesn’t really prioritize its drivers. It’s classic poor form from Uber, and I’m going to explain why. As the Chronicle points out, last year, Uber began letting its drivers see ride destinations and pricing information before accepting rides. In reality, this was a thinly veiled attempt to make it seem like the company was giving its workers some kind of independence and control over how they operate.… This story continues at The Next WebOr just read more coverage about: Uber

Hyundai’s handsome Ioniq 5 electric car will be ditching the driver, with Motional announcing the autonomous Lyft vehicles it’s developing will be based on the recently-announced EV. The driverless EV crossovers are expected to go into deployment from 2023, with riders booking their trip through the regular Lyft app. Motional and Lyft announced their partnership back in late 2020, with … Continue reading
Lyft and Motional have selected the Hyundai Ioniq 5 for their forthcoming autonomous ride-hailing service. Motional, which is a joint venture between Aptiv and Hyundai, said the Ioniq 5 was chosen because it represents a “convergence of mobility’s two most transformative technologies — electrification and autonomy.” Motional hasn’t said how many vehicles it would acquire, nor where it will eventually deploy them for its robotaxi service. The company is currently testing its fleet of Chrysler Pacifica minivans in Las Vegas, where it is also running an autonomous ride-hailing service with Lyft. The Ioniq 5 was first unveiled by Hyundai last month, and won’t go on sale until later this year. Also, the vehicle won’t hit public roads as part... Continue reading…

The apps will integrate certain features in the coming weeks so you can grab a ride without leaving Tinder.
The feature will be released in coming months and is for "post-lockdown daters," Tinder said.
Illustration by Alex Castro / The Verge Tinder is partnering with Lyft to offer the ability to gift rides to dates without having to leave the Tinder app. It’s a small convenience if you already have the Lyft app downloaded, but like adding video chat in the app, it’s one less reason to switch your focus away from your match and to another app. There’s no firm release date for the Lyft integration other than it’s “slated to roll out in the coming months” and Tinder has no visuals to share yet for how it will work in the app. Tinder does say that Lyft’s usual safety features like location sharing with family and friends will be available from the Lyft app for gifted rides. Adding Lyft rides could be convenient, but there are some potential scenarios to be concerned about. It’s... Continue reading…
