At Ridesharing Driver, we use our real world experience in the gig economy to help you succeed in a complicated new economy that isn’t always easy to navigate by yourself.
You might feel alone when your ‘boss’ is an app, so we’re proud to provide a community and a helping hand to drivers.
We are trusted by over 25,000 email subscribers and our content is frequently featured around the web on sources like Wikipedia, Business Insider, & Nationwide.
Where we started
In 2013, I became a founding Lyft driver in Orange County, California. Back then, Lyft and Uber were just starting to transform the way that we get around, and the way we work.
I was working as a writer and website builder in the higher education niche, and the gig economy helped to give me some much needed supplemental income.
As I tried to learn the ropes of my new driving gig, I noticed that there wasn’t much help out there for drivers and passengers.
There were a few Facebook groups for drivers, but the best advice would quickly get buried as new conversations took the top spot in the feed. It wasn’t a great way to get help.
So I decided to build a website that could be a permanent source that anyone could easily find online.
It started as a side hustle to my driving side hustle, but as I built a bigger audience I went full-time online. I stuck with it, and here we are today.
Where we are today
Our 10th anniversary will be in 2024!
Today, we’re still here serving our original goal: To help drivers and app users take full advantage of one of the fastest growing sectors in the new economy.
We have expanded our content to cover not only ridesharing, but also delivery and other on-demand gigs.
We are growing and maturing right alongside the rest of the gig economy and continue to take pride in having up-to-date, accurate content that reflects the changes that are happening every day.
