I want to start a company like Uber because they seem to be able to get away with anything. And, the executives make a lot of money. The transportation industry has always been interesting to me but I'm not sure how to get started.

    No problem.  You just need $70 billion dollars.

    If you want to start a ridesharing business, first of all, you should create a website/ mobile app.

    If you want to know how to create a rideshare app, follow these steps below: 
    • Step 1. Find out pros and cons of a ridesharing app development
    • Step 2. Define your niche to build a right rideshare app
    • Step 3. Conduct a marketing analysis to make a rideshare app
    • Step 4. Choose the business model for your app
    • Step 5. Find the appropriate monetization way
    • Step 6. Mind to settle required legal issues
    • Step 7. Add MVP to your rideshare app

    Also, I recommend you to contact Cleveroad company, they've got the experience of custom app development and could help you with creating app business logic.

    well good luck with that, uber has pretty much dominated the rideshare market. It took lyft years to even get close to uber, but they're still behind

    Your only chance is to find a niche that hasn't been covered yet! Rideshare for farmers looking to transport chickens is probably the only niche not covered at this point ;)

    I would suggest against this idea, don't reinvent the wheel! You will never beat out Uber now. Come up with your own new idea.

    It's all about being an entrepreneur. You can start something if you have the passion for it! Look at all the other smaller rideshare companies that have emerged against Uber.

    believe it or not, creating the app and a platform is probably not a huge investmenet.  Many rideshare services do start up in niche markets.  The problem is the rest of the business model that hasn't been proven by anyone yet. The driver recruitment, pay, and retention...  Local laws, licensing...
