It’s impossible to imagine a world without the Internet. It has brought many instant, useful things since its unveiling: social media, quick information, online shopping, e-services, multimedia streaming, and most recently, ridesharing.
What Is Ridesharing?
Part of a wider “collaborative-sharing” spectrum, ridesharing is an e-service that uses ride hailing apps, so users can get access to available, shared rides from point A to point B. It uses the latest technological advances including social networks, GPS navigation, and mobile devices.
Two of the most popular ridesharing companies today are, bearing the same name as their apps, Uber and Lyft. Users love the convenience that these apps offer – a button on a smart phone is simply pressed, and a ride arrives at the customer’s doorstep.
The Convenience of Uber and Lyft
Uber and Lyft are transportation network companies that offer ridesharing services through the use of their apps. Here’s a quick look at how their services work:
First, a user has to download the apps through a smart phone. Once registered through the apps, user has to submit a request for a trip. The app will search for the nearest, available ride among Uber and Lyft drivers and match it to the request.
Once alerted, the driver will pick up the customer. Upon arriving at the destination, customer pays and rates driver through the app. The driver can also rate the customer.
Ridesharing Safety Precautions
As with any business, the right step to take is to provide what’s best for customers. Uber and Lyft, in order to provide safe rides for both the drivers that sign up with them and customers that use their apps, implement various safety guidelines including, but not limited to, background and DMV checks, emergency hotlines, zero-tolerance on substance abuse, ratings for both drivers and customers, insurance protection plan, and vehicle inspections.
