Waymo Driverless Car

Chandler, Arizona has been the home of something new and potentially very special since 2016.

Posted by: Lilly Kenyon in Driver Community 2 weeks, 6 days ago

Whether you are a rideshare driver, a truck driver, or prone to road trips, being in the car for long hours is hard on your back. Your lower back takes the brunt of the pain.

Posted by: Felicia Dodge in Rideshare Knowledge 3 weeks ago

As more people move to cities and become eco-conscious, it’s no wonder ridesharing is taking off. Scooters are a no brainer for environmentally friendly city dwellers. They are quick and affordable to get around but also have a small carbon footprint. Bird scooters are widely known because they were the first of their kind, but Spin scooters followed only five months later. 

San Francisco, 2016, was the birthplace of Spin and their scooters. Within a year of their creation, Ford bought the company for almost $100 million. The acquisition allowed Spin to invest time and money into developing a battery ...
