A Better Mobile App for Drivers in the Transportation Industry
Created by Michael Schleipfer.
I'm a Designer in Denver, CO. I work at Colorado Luxury Ride LLC. Previously, I've worked at Metro Taxi, Freedom Cab, Cap'n Fresh and the Stay Fresh Seals.
A App For drivers that is built for drivers unlike the bad business practices of Uber and Lyft, this will gain popularity quickly since there is no good alternative yet, it will be welcomed with open arms from the Government ,drivers and customers since it is built to improve the business and not diminish it
To improve the transportation industry for both drivers and customers, and rival the bad business practices that are creating a race to the bottom in the transportation industry. it is designed to support drivers in building their business so they still have something to sell and can remain independent. I have been driving independently for 16 years and understand what it would take to improve the business through an app for both drivers and customers while at the same time helping to move the industry towards better standards and allow customers to support drivers who are organized in Unions or are a part of a Co op and help to minimize the carbon footprint that the transportation industry creates and make something that is more conducive to international travelers and customers with disabilities, also it will help keep regulated and drivers with proper insurance who are experienced and dedicated in their profession to not be forced out by part time drivers who undercut the rates that are needed for a driver to stay in their profession.
