Yes, the platform includes a mobile app to communicated tasks to drivers (details of trips/rides to execute, traveling to areas of high demand, when to recharge/refuel the vehicle, etc.) and allow drivers to update and manage the times they are available to work. We generally operate a platform provider, enabling local fleets to work directly with drivers sourced from the community, and we provide the tools to make that operation smooth and efficient. We see a lot of promise in Indianapolis, and accordingly look forward to scaling up this operation far beyond a pilot.
Hey Jonah - Thanks for bringing that up, and yes - that is exactly what you could do, tapping into a shared, on-demand supply of vehicles to pilot any additional idea that requires transportation. The goal is to make it easy to launch new services by reducing the seeding cost of launching a dedicated fleet.
I was just noting that we were inspired by your idea of Ride-sharing 2.0, with providing a more controlled, high-quality and safe ride-sharing experience. Hopefully we'll be in Indianapolis later this year, though I am based between Israel and the US east coast. Once I know when, would love to reach out.
